Mergers and Acquisitions Description

Mergers and Acquisitions: Cases and Materials--known for its cases, references to state and federal statutes, and ample problems--underscores the importance of modern fiduciary duty law. Its real-world, skills-based approach to transactions from Main Street to Wall Street emphasizes the ethical responsibilities of both lawyers and corporate managers who are responsible for implementing those transactions. Notes in the Appendix demonstrate the necessity of understanding where the money (or whatever serves as the acquisition consideration) is going.

The Third Edition features a new chapter on "Going Private" (eliminating all public shareholders,) and focuses on changes in Delaware laws. More note materials help students put cases and developments into context, particularly on structuring acquisition transactions and fiduciary duty law. New cases discussed include Vantagepoint Venture Partners 1996 v. Examen, Inc. and En re: Topps Company Shareholders-- Litigation. New cases replace some older ones and several cases are more tightly edited. The text reflects all recent securities law and rule changes.
