  • GoToWebinar


Registration is closed
Please join MATI for the first webinar in our 2015 series Research & Practice in Legal Interpretation and Translation:

"Anatomy" of a Business Transaction 
Presented by Hadassah Weiner, Ph.D.

This session will examine the elements of a simple acquisition transaction (purchase and sale of a business) from the time discussions begin through closing. Emphasis will be on key transaction documents and clauses as well as recurring words and phrases. The goals are to improve your understanding of the context in which you may be translating and to provide a springboard to more complex transactions. This session is also appropriate for financial translators who encounter transactional documents and terminology in their work.


Hadassah Weiner earned her A.B. in Spanish from Douglass College and her Ph.D. in Spanish literature from Indiana University. She returned to Douglass to teach before entering University of Pennsylvania Law School. After graduation, she practiced at a Manhattan firm until joining KPMG's Office of General Counsel. She retired as Deputy General Counsel in 2008.

Dassie taught legal writing at Cardozo Law School as well as proposal, engagement letter, and report writing at KPMG. Now, a freelance translator, she is an online Spanish-Englih legal translation and French-English financial translation tutor for University of Chicago's Graham School. Her other languages are Italian and Hebrew.
