Company Acquisitions Handbook – A Book Review
by Brian Risman, Publisher and Founder, The Law Journal UK
The Company Acquisitions Handbook (Law Handbook) is an excellent guide for those of legal and other backgrounds who are involved in Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) activities.
The Company Acquisitions Handbook (Law Handbook) (10th edition), is a concise step by step guide to the mergers and acquisitions process. Whilst it is strong in its legal content, it contains valuable advice from some of the UK's leading corporate strategy and corporate finance experts. This practical guide covers all aspects of the corporate acquisition process, from the strategic decision to make an acquisition, to planning and implementation, all the way through to post acquisition management. Anybody involved in mergers and acquisitions at any level will benefit from the easy to follow step-by-step instructions and legal knowledge provided throughout this work.
As noted above, a strong point of the book is that it can be utilised by readers at different levels. An excellent point form summary called 'At a Glance' is at the beginning of each chapter. This feature allows the reader to determine if a particular section is relevant to their particular needs.
In fact, this book is in my view best approached as a 'Handbook' for legal, accounting and business personnel. It is in a cookbook style, providing clear checklists for what is required in a particular area. The writing is concise and clear, and whilst in detail, is eminently readable even for those lacking a professional background in a particular area. Background information to aid the reader is readily provided.
This book comes with a strong recommendation for readers to seriously consider reading – and absorbing – the material in this book.
