2014Shanghai Symposium


International Legal Roundtable Symposium on
Cross-Border Investment and M&A


The International Institute for the Study of Cross-Border Investment and M&A held its fifth Symposium on current issues in international cross-border mergers, acquisitions and strategic investments. The Symposium was hosted by its three founding Universities, Peking University, Cambridge and NYU.

The Symposium represents an effort by its founding Universities and professionals to foster dialogue and connections among the world’s leading business and legal experts, scholars and thought leaders about key issues, trends and developments in the global deal markets. The goal is to encourage pragmatic, de-politicized analysis and study of the market dynamics that fuel business expansion through cross-border M&A, and of the financial, legal, governmental and societal frameworks that facilitate or hinder such activity.

The Symposium included a gathering of the XBMA Legal Roundtable, following the successful launch of the XBMA Forum (https://live-xbma.pantheonsite.io/forum/) in 2011.
