Students Win Best Draft at the 2013 Transactional Law Southeast Regional MeetPosted on: 02/18/2013
NSU Law students Jessica Williams (3L), Brian Taft (2L), and Erica Alberino (2L) were awarded Best Draft for the Seller at the 2013 Transactional Law Meet in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, February 15th for the Southeast Regional Rounds. This is the second year the law school has participated in this meet. Professor Donna Litman served as the Faculty Coach for the team.
The students represented the seller in an M&A setting and drafted an amendment to a stock purchase agreement. They met with three different teams of students who represented the buyer to negotiate the terms of the amendment.
Prior to the meet, the students consulted with Robert C. White, Jr., a business, corporate and technology attorney with The Gunster Firm, and Scott Smiley, an adjunct professor and patent attorney with ConceptLaw. Professors of Law Joe Harbaugh and Leslie Cooney also provided insights on negotiating strategies.
Six of our students, Darlene Bedley Baron (3L), Jared Guberman (3L), Matthew Botkin (2L), Jordan Greenberg (2L), Kevin Koushel (2L), and Jason Thomassy (2L), represented the buyer in practice negotiations.
