Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

A merger or large acquisition is often the most significant event in the life of a firm and can have dramatic consequences for all of a firm's constituencies - from shareholders, directors, and managers to employees, customers, and communities. Lawyers andthe law play critical roles in how mergers and acquisitions are evaluated, structured, and implemented. The course covers key legal issues relevant to the M&A of large companies, both public and private, including important forms of private ordering (such as poison pills, lockups, and earnouts). A principal focus will be on the key drivers of M&A activity, the business incentives of the parties to the transactions, and the documentation and negotiation of the deals.
