A detailed and authoritative practitioner work on mergers and acquisitions of companies in the US and UK, this will be an important reference for lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic (including all major companies with dealings in those jurisdictions). It covers law and practice in the US and UK in equal detail: the US chapters cover both federal and key state regulatory regimes; the UK chapters include coverage of the City Code and developments in the European Union. The author combines a strong academic background with extensive experience as a practising lawyer with the US firm Shearman & Sterling, one of the top mergers and acquisitions firms in the world.
