James Hughes co-authors Bloomberg BNA's Corporate Practice Portfolio
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
James P. Hughes, Jr. co-authored Bloomberg BNA’s Corporate Practice Portfolio Series No. 105, Deal Protection Devices. The 15-chapter Portfolio, which the authors spent almost two years researching and writing, provides an overview and analysis of the typical deal protection devices that govern the period between the signing of a merger agreement and a stockholder vote on the transaction. The Portfolio explores how deal-protection provisions operate together and how and why they are scrutinized by the courts, particularly when parties adopt aggressive or unprecedented variations of the protections. Most chapters include practical tips, guidance and considerations for practitioners who draft such provisions. Finally, the Portfolio concludes with a appendix containing samples from illustrative merger and voting agreements and other deal-related documents.
The publication is available through the Bloomberg BNA's web site.
