The book also includes questions and problems to aid students in walking through the law's basic distinctions. Textual notes and edited articles identify and question the empirical and political assumptions implicit in the standards. The new edition updates all areas and includes coverage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and its impact on leveraged buy-outs and corporate inversions. The new edition also contains a new chapter on shareholder activism, covering the methods activists use to push their agendas on corporate managers.

Mergers and Acquisitions

A Transactional Perspective

This casebook embodies the conviction that theoretical and practical legal education are complementary and no more so than in the setting of M&A transactions, where corporate lawyers are regularly called upon to draw on their substantive knowledge of the law to advise clients on how best to effectuate their business objectives. Accordingly, this book retains the most significant judicial decisions in M&A jurisprudence while also making heavy use of textual explication, sample documentary provisions, and the latest teaching methods to deepen students' understanding of the relevant case law and prepare them for practice. The authors employ three principal pedagogical methods: Questions help students focus on information in the cases that is most relevant to the principles underlying specific topic areas. Problems hone students' abilities to interpret and apply the material to novel situations similar to those they might be asked to analyze in practice. Skills exercises provide time-efficient transactional skills training to students in the context of M&A. Additionally, this title is accompanied by online self-assessment quizzes, tied to the text, that help you gauge your understanding of the material.

Practical Guide to Mergers, Acquisitions and Business Sales

Author: Joseph B. Darby

Publisher: CCH

ISBN: 9780808014706

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 512

"Buying and selling a business is a challenging process. It involves rituals and interactions that are sometimes eerily similar to the courtship dynamic between a human couple. While many business courtships end in an economic marriage, plenty of others fail and for a variety of reasons. Many unsuccessful business negotiations could have made sense, but ultimately floundered, because negotiations went badly awry at some crucial point. CCH's brand-new Practical Guide to Mergers, Acquisitions and Business Sales by seasoned business transaction attorney and author, Joseph B. Darby III, J.D., not only explains the tax aspects of buying and selling a business, but examines the special art of closing major business transactions successfully through an understanding of the tax consequences of the deal. ; There also are two other parties with a major economic stake in a business merger, acquisition or sale: the federal government and (usually at least one) state government. The role of a tax adviser on an business acquisition transaction is to make everyone aware that there are two "silent partners" in the room at all times and that the Buyer and Seller have a common interest in cutting the silent partners out of the deal or reducing their take. The purpose and mission of Practical Guide to Mergers, Acquisitions and Business Sales is to teach practitioners and business stakeholders how to pare the tax costs of transactions to the absolute minimum, within the boundaries of ethical and appropriate tax reporting."--Publisher's website.

Why Deals Fail

And How to Rescue Them

Author: Anna Faelten,Michel Driessen,Scott Moeller,The Economist

Publisher: PublicAffairs

ISBN: 1610397916

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 224

The combined value of all M&A deals from 1980 to the end of 2015 was almost $65 trillion—bigger than the current annual world economy value outside the US. In that same period, almost 900,000 deals were announced. Many were questionable, as Why Deals Fail shows. With companies expected to continue to merge in record numbers, it is time to learn some critical lessons from those deals. In 2014 the government of the UK—one of the most open markets globally for M&A—commissioned Cass Business School’s Mergers and Acquisitions Research Centre, headed by Scott Moeller, to investigate whether M&A has a negative or positive impact on the country’s economy. Their findings: M&A deals do generate short-term benefits for the economy, especially because some large deals were spectacularly successful. However, over the longer term, the results are less clear-cut. Despite those highly successful tie-ups that drove the economic results to an overall positive average, the majority of UK mergers by number in the research period actually destroyed value. In summary, deals can be hugely beneficial for all involved when you get it right but they still, at large, struggle to live up to their initial hype—and potential. Done wrong, they can damage business and, by extension, the economy and result in hundreds if not thousands of employees being made redundant. Most of the mergers detailed in this book are lessons in what not to do; the authors get behind the corporate veil to show what went wrong when huge and otherwise highly successful global businesses such as the Royal Bank of Scotland, Microsoft, and HP embarked on M&A transactions. Why Deals Fail is aimed at business people who want to understand better how M&A can drive corporate fortunes. Whether you are a seasoned M&A professional, an employee in a company that is acquiring or being acquired, or a newly graduated business student doing analysis about a deal, this book will help you to make the right decisions when they are most crucial.

Few areas of law practice cover as many issues as family law. The subject embraces marriage and divorce, annulment, custody of children, spousal and child support, complex property issues, paternity, domestic violence, adoption, and alternative means of reproduction. Each of these topics itself is complex. For example, within the broad subject of child custody lie the issues of interstate move away cases, international parental child abduction, and the impact of domestic violence on a parent's right to custody or visitation. In addition to purely legal issues, family law has a large psychological component, touching on some of the most important and sensitive aspects of human nature and interaction, such as, what is a family, what are the rights and responsibilities of parents toward children, and how should society respond to child abuse and domestic violence? All of these issues, and more, are discussed in this Nutshell. The book provides a thorough introduction to this challenging field of practice.
