Derived from Kluwer’s multi-volume Corporate Mergers and Acquisitions, the largest and most detailed database of M&A know-how available anywhere in the world, this work by a highly experienced partner in the leading international law firm Slaughter and May provides a concise, practical analysis of current law and practice relating to mergers and acquisitions of public and private companies in the United Kingdom. The book offers a clear explanation of each step in the acquisition process from the perspectives of both the purchaser and the seller. Key areas covered include: structuring the transaction; due diligence; contractual protection; consideration; and the impact of applicable company, competition, tax, intellectual property, environmental and data protection law on the acquisition process.

Equivalent analyses of M&A law and practice in some 50 other jurisdictions, all contributed by leading law firms, are accessible on-line at under Corporate Acquisitions and Mergers.
