West LegalEdcenter has published, in a versatile PDF-only format, Ken Adams’s new book, The Structure of M&A Contracts.
Like A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, this book is rigorous, innovative, and practical, and it’s unmatched in the M&A literature. Here is what two well-known M&A lawyers have to say about the book:
This book will quickly become a go-to reference for anyone in the M&A agreement business. Not only is it one of the clearest and most practical guides to drafting agreements that work, it also provokes and advances the art with suggestions for improving current standards, many of which I believe will be adopted over time. The book is deserving of the highest praise I can bestow—I learned something from it.
Michael J. Kendall, Partner, Goodwin Procter LLP
Ken Adams has once again produced a work that is both thought-provoking and worthwhile. I highly recommend The Structure of M&A Contracts to anyone who has an interest in drafting better contracts.
Michael A. Woronoff, Partner, Proskauer
For now, the book is available only by calling West LegalEdcenter at (800) 308-1700. Adams has in mind that it will be purchased in bulk by law firms, and at $25 (plus volume discounts), it’s priced accordingly.
