A Step-by-Step Legal and Practical Guide Getting mergers and acquisitions transactions successfully completed requires an understanding of the legal framework, negotiating points, and practical aspects of each stage of the deal.

Miller, Jr. explores the M&A process from beginning to end, including: Corporate finance fundamentals Critical early steps in the acquisition process How to structure transactions to achieve the best economic result Tax considerations for both buyers and sellers Key and often-misunderstood provisions in the definitive acquisition agreement Acquisitions of public companies—what's different Leveraged buyouts and acquisitions of troubled businesses Mergers and Acquisitions is a must-read whether you're a legal or business professional, an entrepreneur, an investor, or a law or business school student. The book will also be extremely useful to international lawyers and businessmen who need to understand the M&A practices in the United States that are being increasingly adopted around the world. Praise for Mergers and Acquisitions "Buyers and sellers both hope to be winners in an acquisition. But at the negotiating table, there is only one winner for each point and winning may mean a significant change in the deal economics.

More importantly, it explains why specific deal structures, contractual terms and diligence procedures are used." —Jonathan Wolfman, Partner, WilmerHale, Boston "As U.S. M&A concepts, documents and practices become increasingly adopted internationally, this book will be an invaluable resource. It provides an excellent overview of the entire area, and is easily understandable by corporate executives and lawyers outside the United States." —Leo Specht, founder, Specht Rechtsanwalts-Gesellschaft mbH, Vienna, Austria

Praise for Lifecycle of a Technology Company "Lifecycle of a Technology Company is a comprehensive business and legal handbook for all but the most experienced technology entrepreneurs. I shared my copy with a few colleagues at MIT who have either started or are contemplating launching their own companies, and I had a real problem retrieving it. The data supports my opinion that this book will attain 'handbook' status on the desks of technology entrepreneurs." -Dr. George B. Kenney, Associate Director Materials Processing & Microphotonics Centers at MIT "This book will help entrepreneurs avoid the pitfalls on the long road to success for venture-backed technology companies. It distills a lifetime of experience in advising technology companies in a concise and understandable way." -Howard Berke, Serial Entrepreneur and Venture Capitalist "Lifecycle of a Technology Company provides a valuable resource for lawyers at a variety of experience levels. The junior lawyer will use this resource for the basics. More experienced lawyers with a broad practice will use this for a 'sanity check' relative to market terms and business rationale. In the trenches, it will assist lawyers by providing practical, plain speaking explanations for why things operate as they do in the finance, intellectual property, and merger & acquisition segments of the technology world. If you expect to represent technology clients, keep this book nearby." -James O'Hare, Partner Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis, Boston
