Companies sometimes set up a formal "clean room" where they
exchange information before a deal is 100% final. The distinguishing
feature of these clean rooms is that active employees of the two
companies have NO direct contact: they're staffed by an independent
third party or by employees who are told that they'll be let go if the
merger/acquisition falls through. To me, this implies that there
are some big legal considerations involved with chatting up your
future co-workers.
