This casebook is designed to introduce law students to transactional lawyering and to encourage stimulating student dialogues. At the same time it includes enough material from finance and economics literature to give students an understanding of how the market for corporate control operates. The casebook contains examples of documentation, as well as leading cases in each area.
It is divided into four parts, including: (1) the source of gains in business combinations; (2) duties and risks of sellers; (3) buyers' risks in acquisitions; and (4) takeover contests.
