How to Become a Sought-After Deal Maker

Thursday, February 25, 2016
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm  |  RWU Law | Bristol, Rhode Island

Featuring Guest Speaker Michael A. Voccola '97
Associate General Counsel, The Procaccianti Group

The best transactional lawyers can, in a very short time, earn wide-spread reputations as “Deal Makers” – those lawyers who actually assemble the business deal and work with a myriad of parties to generate and execute the deal documents, including multiple contracts, licenses, permits, agreements, indemnifications, and estoppel certificates.  This Open Door event will be an interactive seminar that guides you through the basic steps of “How to Become a Sought-After Deal Maker” and successfully operate as a transactional attorney.   Michael A. Voccola, Associate General Counsel of The Procaccianti Group and RWU alum (1997), is a sought-after “Deal Maker” for the second largest privately-owned hotel owner and operator in the United States.  Come learn, through his first-hand accounts of an actual deal, how the varying influences of cash, credit, and experience impact profoundly the contours of a transaction.  Come prepared to interact with the deal: You will receive a simple list of facts in advance so that you’re prepared to contribute!

Presentation in Law 262 followed by refreshments in the Bay View Room.
