Lawyers engaged in the M&A practice will inevitably be confronted with cross-border transactions and will have to appropriately counsel their clients in the variable aspects of the law.
This book, based on an international conference held by the Law Centre for European and International Cooperation (R.I.Z.), provides a comprehensive exploration of the legal implications of a cross-border merger or acquisition.
Applying a comparative approach, the compilation of articles by professors, practitioners and bankers provides thorough information on topics including:
Business Combination Agreements;
Securities Regulation and Stock Exchange Listing Requirements;
International M&As and International Accounting Standards;
Financial Techniques and Legal Considerations in International Mergers and Hostile Take-Overs;
Antitrust Laws in the United States and Europe and their Extraterritorial Reach;
Bank Mergers and Bank Supervisory Law.
In addition to these topics, case studies analyzing the Daimler/Chrysler Merger and the British Petroleum/Amoco Merger have been included to illustrate the impact that different structures can have on the success of a business combination.
