European Takeovers provides a complete guide to the European Takeover Directive, national M&A regulation and the interaction between domestic and pan-European regulation. It contains a detailed discussion of the fundamental principles of national and European law, its application and the various practical issues that companies and their advisers face as they plan, defend and execute takeovers.

This third edition further explores the area following the partial harmonisation of takeover regulation within the European Union since the introduction of the European Takeover Directive and is an exhaustive reference source for anyone preparing, participating in and responding to takeover activity in the EU. Chapters have been fully updated with the latest regulations and case law in the featured jurisdictions, and new chapters have been added addressing key topics such as the relationship between ESG and M&A, as well as complex topics such as the notion of collusion.

This title will prove to be an invaluable guide for practising professionals and academics studying this area of law. Written by leading legal and banking professionals, and academics from across Europe, European Takeovers will help you navigate national takeover legislation and its implementation, and discusses recent ground-breaking and controversial takeovers from across the Continent. Notable transactions examined include Akzo Nobel-PPG, Syngenta-ChemChina, Actelion-J&J, Celesio-McKesson, Abertis-ACS/Atlantia and SAB Miller-AB InBev.
