Corporate Law of Mergers and Acquisitions

Taught by Professor George S. Geis | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Mergers and acquisitions are extreme events in the life of a corporation. They can catapult a new corporation to success—or sink CEOs. Professor Geis explains the reasons companies merge, the business synergies that two firms hope to attain by merging, what merger lawyers do, and a special type of merger knowing as a “cash-out” merger.
