Welcome to the ninth edition of The International Comparative Legal Guide to:
Mergers & Acquisitions.
This guide provides corporate counsel and international practitioners with a comprehensive worldwide legal analysis of the laws and regulations of mergers and acquisitions.
It is divided into two main sections: Four general chapters. These are designed to provide readers with an overview of key issues affecting mergers and acquisitions, particularly from the perspective of a multi-jurisdictional transaction.
Country question and answer chapters. These provide a broad overview of common issues in mergers and acquisitions in 55 jurisdictions. All chapters are written by leading mergers and acquisitions lawyers and industry specialists and we are extremely grateful for their excellent contributions. Special thanks are reserved for the contributing editor Michael Hatchard of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom (UK) LLP for his invaluable assistance.
