Christian Atwood, a private equity partner at Choate, was recently featured in the article titled, “Investment bank ‘books’ get shorter as M&A evolves," by the PE Hub Network.  Mr. Atwood discussed the benefits of using pithier confidential information memos during standard M&A processes.

From the article:

“If the goal is to get to a single buyer, the quicker you can separate the wheat from chaff the better,” Atwood said. “Shorter CIMs are more quickly and efficiently produced and, therefore, lend themselves to better, more focused use of a target’s, and its management team’s, resources.”
