Course Description

International Mergers and Acquisitions | L4351

This course will consider modern cross-border acquisitions and divestitures. We will explore the benefits and drawbacks of various common structures of international combinations: equity purchases, asset purchases and joint ventures. Primary attention will be paid to the U.S. practice of M&A law as a keystone for understanding cross-border transactions. Tax, accounting, intellectual property and other business factors will be discussed, as will legal issues like indemnification, dispute resolution, competition regulation and the cross-jurisdictional regulation. The goal of this course is to provide an understanding of chronology, documents and terms of acquisitions, divestitures and joint ventures and a framework for thinking critically about the issues faced in cross-border deal-making. Note: Due to overlap in content, students should not take this course and the Mergers and Acquisitions course.
