Practical Guidance Mergers & Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) provides best practice guidance on the steps and processes around private M&A (asset and share sales) and public M&A transactions (public takeovers and schemes of arrangement) as well as associated considerations/compliance obligations related to other areas of law such as competition, intellectual property, and governance. It also contains multi-jurisdictional content useful for deals with a cross border element.


The module is a transaction based and ultra-practical resource designed to assist practitioners with adhering to best practice, streamlining workflows and transacting faster and more efficiently. It supports and links to already existing leading commentary works (such as Takeovers and Reconstructions in Australia) and completes the M&A suite for firms practicing in M&A.
