Every business exit is an emotional roller coaster for both the owners and employees. Business owners have the ability to either alleviate fear or exacerbate it, so it is essential to set the right tone and carefully manage the message.

Join us on May 6th for XPX Long Island: Bringing Key People Under the Tent: Key Concerns and Best Practices. CMM Senior Partner Christine Malafi, chair of our Corporate Department, is invited as a panelist to discuss how to successfully lead a team through an acquisition transition.

Christine has led the CMM legal team in closing countless M&A deals worth billions of dollars. She has vast experience advising on both buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions in a variety of industries, including technology, manufacturing, education, healthcare, and professional service sectors.
