WHY FINANCE SKILL FOR LAWYERS?
Lawyers play a very important role in the financial world, but often have little or no knowledge in finance. This training aims to fill this knowledge gap by providing people with legal background with adequate knowledge to further understand the financial decision making of their clients and foster an effective communication with an integrated team of lawyers, accountants, and investment advisers.
KEY BENEFITS: By attending this program, you will;
*Understand the key concept in finance and investment.
*Able to scale up by adding more value to your client when negotiating with the other party, as you will be able to estimate the financial implication of specific changes in the deal.
*Be able to ask the right questions from your client, and from other financial advisors – accountant and investment advisors etc…
*Improve your understanding of current financial market development and trends.
Both in corporate finance and in investments, lawyers are important. Corporate restructuring transactions such as mergers, takeovers, and joint ventures almost do not come to be without legal advice and involvement of lawyers.
In investments, lawyers play a key role in the establishment and structure of the investment and often serve as negotiators in investment transactions. Of these transaction processes, finance, accounting and economics are crucial aspects.
In the field of finance, issues like valuation, cost of capital, understanding of cash flows and the time value of money should be part of the knowledge of all those involved in the transaction.
Accountancy issues are important in the due diligence of the transaction, while economic theories of agency and corporate governance form the basis for the structuring of investment vehicles and management compensation.
In all these disciplines, lawyers may have some difficulties since their training is not usually financed related issues. Most times they operate in multi-disciplinary teams, including client representatives, investment bankers, accountants and the lawyers themselves. The other players often have strong finance or accounting background, which puts the lawyers at a greater disadvantage in their understanding of the issues involved and vocabulary.
Apart from the theoretical lectures, extensive practical implementation of the analytical tools in a number of smaller cases will be treated. Based on available time, professional language and terminologies will also be covered.
