This book offers a succinct and insightful discussion of the laws governing mergers and acquisitions transactions conducted in Canada. It draws on a collection of loosely related legal principles and rules in corporate law and securities law as well as in tax, competition, and a handful of other areas. Professor Nicholls, one of Canada's leading scholars in corporate law, provides a clear guide to this complex pastiche of legislation, regulation, administrative and judicial decision-making, and standard practices which have developed over time from both domestic and international precedents. "Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Changes in Corporate Control" will be the first reference for legal practitioners, corporate executives, students, or anyone else who requires an up-to-date, authoritative analysis of the Canadian legal environment in which changes in corporate control take place.
