About mergers and acquisitions


ljglw
Hi,guys!
Could someone tell me about mergers and acquisitions belong to which parts of the law, commercial, corporate or financial? coz some problem of translation and interpretion, I can not seperate them clearly.
And, btw, If I wanna learn more about M&A, which law school in london will suit me more, UCL LSE or KCL?
thx indeed.

I'd say it depends:

1. Commercial law would deal with the general commercial considerations in putting a deal together (e.g. earn-outs and retentions, warranties in a SPA).
2. Corporate law would explain matters such as shareholder rights / directors' duties, corporate actions (e.g. under the Takeover Code).
3. Financial law would concentrate on the banking / funding arrangements in a transaction (e.g. debt and securtisation, primary and secondary market financing).

From what I know, they all lots of it, so you really need to look at their prospectuses / webpages. My only thought is that at the LLM level, you'd probably already need some knowledge about M&A.

Good luck.

M&A is a diverse matter with various influences from all the mentioned areas and even more. It depends also very much on the transaction itself - which knowledge will be necessary, sometimes you will have to consult lawyers from other areas, that you're not familiar with (tax, labour law....).

I think the whole approach to see M&A as a closed 'subject' is somehow ill-fitting.

actually the above is so true. There's bits of other areas which come in.

hi
I am currently studying LLM at UCL and as luck would have it i am doing a module on cross border mergers and acquisitions. Although i should warn you that there is nothing cross border about the course i am doing.
Regarding which specialisation it falls under. Well at least in UCL you can opt for int commercial or corporate law and have MnA fall under both.
hope that helps.

Can you offer some insights on that module ? I got into UCL KCL and LSE for LLM in Corporate/Financial Law and am really struggling to decide where should I go to. So far, UCL is my pick. Any insight you can give me would be great.
