O'Melveny partner and Asia Practice chair Howard Chao will be participating in the Asia Business Conference 2009 at Harvard Law School in Boston, MA on February 13-15.

On Saturday, February 14, Chao will be a panelist in the workshop, titled, “Mergers and Acquisitions: Asian Companies Going Global,” from 1:00-2:30pm EST. M&A in Asia is going through a period of rapid change, from increased activity in Japan, to continued growth in China, to new developments in India, to the increase in private equity activity. The nature of the current transformations in Asian M&A and the long-term sustainability of today's M&A will affect the worldwide market for years to come. The panel will examine the future for the global presence of Asian companies as well as the difficulties and solutions this would entail, especially given the current economic condition.
