A Student's Guide

Luca Arnaboldi, Federico Modugno

This book is designed to provide law and business school students with the foundations to understand the key stages under which a company acquires another company, and to give them a flavour of the main documents to be found in a typical share acquisition transaction. One of the main features of the book is that it does not limit itself to making examples to explain the application of the rules in practice, but rather follows a fictional scenario with evocatively-named characters who will accompany the reader from the beginning to the end and to whom documents will be specifically tailored. The focus is on Italian law, but comparative reference is made to English law and the laws of other Anglo-American jurisdictions, given their influence in this field. Exploring as it does areas of controversy and points rarely discussed, the book will also be of interest to practitioners and to the academic lawyer looking for a fresh approach to the subject.
