Best Practices for Marketing & Advertising Deal Making


The rules that govern private equity advertising/marketing – both for investors and for deals – are complex, ambiguous and in a state of flux. This leads to confusion as to what firms can and cannot do, say, or have on their website in order to attract deals. Listen to top private equity deal originators describe some of their challenges and solutions, and also learn about ACG's efforts to develop industry-wide best practices regarding marketing and advertising for deals. We hope that this will be a robust, informative discussion.

Venable attorneys attending the conference include: Arthur E. Cirulnick, Ronn S. Davids, Frank M. Gasparo, Scott E. Gluck, Thora A. Johnson, Michael R. Manley, Charles J. MortonW. Bryan Rakes, Jeffrey S. Sabin and Philip T. von Mehren.
