SOLM010 Mergers & Acquisitions (M&As) (Teaching Period B20)

Module Description

This module is a corporate law and financial regulation module analyzing transactions using sophisticated methodologies. The module will focus on issues such as:  due diligence, purchase sale agreements and contractual governance; the role of the board of directors in an acquisition/financing transaction; the permissibility and regulation of takeover defenses in the UK, the US and the EU; the protection of minority shareholders in common law and civil law jurisdictions; the protection of other constituencies such as employees affected by control transactions; and financial assistance regulation in the UK, US and the EU.  The course is strongly committed to presenting a global and comparative perspective highlighting the contemporary principles and trends of corporate finance rather than the pointillist and ephemeral details of national rule books.
