Book Details


European Takeovers' provides a complete guide to the European Takeover Directive, national M&A regulation and the interaction between domestic and pan-European regulation. It contains a detailed discussion of the fundamental principles of national and European law, its application and the various practical issues that companies and their advisers face as they plan, defend and execute takeovers. This second edition further explores the area following the partial harmonisation of takeover regulation within the European Union since the introduction of the European Takeover Directive and is an exhaustive reference source for anyone preparing, participating in and responding to takeover activity in the EU. In addition, US takeover law is examined in depth to provide a comparative perspective. This new edition will also prove to be an invaluable guide for students and academics studying this area of law. Written by leading legal and banking professionals, and academics from across Europe, 'European Takeovers' will help you navigate national takeover legislation and its implementation, and discusses recent ground-breaking and controversial takeovers from across the Continent.
