Davids co-authored a newsletter about post-merger integration (PMI) with Kitahama Partners, a leading Japanese law firm in Osaka. The newsletter summarizes five common PMI topics that Jenner & Block and Kitahama teams often observe: (1) employment matters, such as employee termination and layoffs, worker misclassification, non-compete/non-solicit award agreements, and severance agreements;(2) entity organization and governance issues, including forming a PMI steering committee and building an effective reporting system;(3) compliance with company policies and notification requirements to the authorities;(4) integration of company cultures;and (5) post-closing claims monitoring, such as reps and warranty disputes and net working capital disputes.
