This year’s ABA Business Law Section Meeting will mark the end of Corporate Partner Jon Gworek’s position as Chair of the Private Equity and Venture Capital Committee. Jon was appointed as chair of the committee in 2013 during the annual meeting, and in the role has been integral in planning the committees activities and meetings.
During this year’s meeting in Boston, Jon will act as moderator for various meetings, while the Private Equity and Venture Capital Committee will present two panels: “Valid Corporate Action: Avoiding Failures in Authorization and Ratifying Defective Corporate Acts” and “Venture Backed M&A: Special Considerations”.
The Private Equity and Venture Capital Committee will feature a number of distinguished speakers, including Vice Chancellor Glasscock of the Delaware Court of Chancery, Bruce Patton of Vantage Partners, co-author of Getting to YES: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In and Distinguished Fellow and co-founder of the Harvard Negotiation Project, and prominent corporate venture capitalists, Carl Stjernfeldt from Shell Technology Ventures, and Frank Andrasco from Siemens Venture Capital.
Jon has thoroughly enjoyed leading the Private Equity and Venture Capital Committee over the past three years, and is looking forward to remaining actively involved in the Business Law Section of the ABA.
