20 February 2011

R&P China Lawyers is very proud to have contributed the China chapter to the new edition of Corporate Acquisitions and Mergers published by Kluwer Law International. Clients that wish to receive a complimentary copy of the China chapter of this publication, written by Maarten Roos and Kathleen Cao, can write to [email protected].

Introduction to Corporate Acquisitions and Mergers:

Firmly established and respected as a major reference work on the subject, it provides a one-stop guide to the local practical issues involved. Some of the world's most distinguished law firms, each of them identified as a leading firm in the mergers and acquisitions field in their own country, offer a rich source of information and advice on domestic issues arising on M&A transactions.

The book has been restructured and expanded to cover all the most significant economies in the world. The work is kept up-to-date by regular supplements, which track the key changes and developments in national laws and practice affecting mergers and acquisitions. The work now offers a truly global coverage.

Each country section aims to adopt a broadly similar framework and structure. The topics addressed are:

  • Local economic, political and cultural aspects
  • The regulatory framework
  • Most common types of transaction
  • Common financing methods
  • Antitrust/competition issues
  • Taxation aspects
  • Employment considerations
  • Procedural formalities
  • Accounting treatment
  • Prospective future developments.
