“The Structure of M&A Contracts” Webcast Now Available!

I’m pleased to announce that West LegalEdcenter has now made available the webcast “The Structure of M&A Contracts.” Click here to go to the page for the webcast at West LegalEdcenter’s website.

The webcast constitutes an introduction to, and overview of the subjects discussed in, my book entitled—wait for it—The Structure of M&A Contracts. (Click here for more information about the book.)

On the webcast, I’m joined by Steven Davidoff, professor of law at the University of Connecticut School of Law. As the “Deal Professor,” he writes a regular column for The New York Times’s “DealBook” section. He’s also author of Gods at War: Shotgun Takeovers, Government by Deal and the Private Equity Implosion (2009), an exploration of modern-day deals and deal-making. Go here for my January 2010 Q&A with Steven on AdamsDrafting. Steven is a fixture on the M&A scene, and I’m delighted that he was game to join me on this webcast.

A further word about the book: it’s hands-down the clearest and most practical analysis of the subject, and it blows off the conventional-wisdom cobwebs. I apologize that it’s still available only by phone rather than by download, but I’d like to think that it’s worth that bit of inconvenience. With luck, it will be available by download before too long.
