Being an M&A practitioner or litigator requires not only a knowledge of the law-the statutes, cases, and regulations-but also the documentation and the practices within the transacting community. This book prepares students for practice. The second edition includes, and explains, deal documentation, and discusses how negotiations proceed, referencing both the relevant law and transacting norms. It covers Federal and State law, as well as other relevant regulatory regimes involving antitrust, national security, FCPA and other issues. It has questions designed to get students to understand the law and the underlying policy, and problems to get students familiar with transaction structuring.
