Due Diligence Regarding PACs During Mergers and Acquisitions

May 12, 2016, Covington Alert

Corporate mergers and acquisitions often overlook political law compliance issues—including whether the acquired company has a PAC—until after the transaction is complete and Day One has come and gone.

This alert provides information and resources for the necessary due diligence and for preparations to integrate the PACs after the acquisition is complete.
