  • In-person event

Join us to find out the key data compliance issues covering the whole lifecycle of M&A transactions and how to mitigate data-related risks.

Event details

Data, including personal data, is increasingly one of the most valuable assets of a target for acquisition. Acquirers wish to ensure that applicable laws and regulations will allow the target to continue to use its data. In many cases, the acquirer will be seeking to expand data usage, in particular to integrate the target’s customer base with its own customer data holdings and to better exploit the target’s data for competitive advantage.

Across the globe, data protection and cybersecurity regulations  are evolving quickly and have become increasingly complex, meaning that managing and mitigating data-related risks becomes paramount in any corporate transaction.

Tommy Liu, Partner, and Linda Wang, Senior Associate of Hogan Lovells will give a presentation on the above topic which will provide you with an overview of the compliance pressure points for M&A transactions and their recommended best practices for addressing them, covering the whole lifecycle of an M&A transaction from the preliminary planning and due diligence through to the post-closing phase.
