M&A and due diligence, as you know, are never to be taken lightly. Sometimes the stakes can be high if done improperly – a deal goes south, significant money is lost, or a company loses its reputation, which is always hard to gain back.

As legal counsel – whether you are in-house or working as outside counsel – much of the onus falls on you.

A careful, planned audit of what Open Source Software (OSS) is in use should always be a part of a due diligence effort.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Crucial data points regarding the use of OSS
  • What key OSS risks are potentially hidden in code
  • How to address specific risk issues during fast-moving due diligence
  • The potential adjustments that should be made to deal terms
  • What solutions are crucial to employ during M&A efforts
