"Tales from the Frontlines of M&A: War Stories and Practical Tips"
Join us for a new ACC SFBA initiative exclusively for GC's and CLO's! Meet quarterly with your peers to discuss the most recent legal trends, learn helpful tools for legal department management, and network. Our first Palo Alto meeting will focus on leading companies through mergers & acquisitions with plenty of interesting stories and practical tips! Doug Solomon recently led the transactional team to complete the sale of NetSuite to Oracle for $9.3 Billion, representing the largest pure play cloud acquisition ever, and the third largest enterprise software sale to date. Prior to that, he led 17 NetSuite acquisitions as part of both the legal and corporate development teams. Prior to NetSuite, Doug gained extensive M&A experience completing 19 acquisitions at Openwave Systems Inc. His experience includes acquisitions of all different sizes, and cross border acquisitions of companies located throughout the world.
This event is intended to be an interactive discussion, and questions will be welcomed throughout.
Doug Solomon, former GC of NetSuite Inc., led the global legal function at NetSuite over the last 10 years as well as corporate development activities (M&A and investments), enterprise risk management, and stock administration. He was fortunate to build the legal department form the ground up and to have had the rare opportunity to lead the company through a significant portion of its life cycle, from late stage pre-IPO, through IPO, through the scaling of the business while revenue grew over 16x to over $1 Billion annual run rate, and ultimately through the sale of the Company to Oracle for $9.3 Billion.
