Mergers and Acquisitions Law is a transactional-, as opposed to litigation-, oriented M&A book, since M&A lawyers are by definition transactional lawyers. This emphasis is reflected in the following features of the book:

•  Content selected through an M&A lawyer lens.
•  Emphasis on real-world provisions. The book is loaded with actual provisions from various M&A documents so that students see how the covered legal concepts are documented. The provisions also give students a sense for what M&A lawyers do in practice.
•  Teaching through exercises. The book includes numerous exercises, all of which require students to apply what they've learned from the readings. This involves analyzing deal document language in light of statutory provisions and case law and applying this language in various situations encountered by an M&A lawyer. The exercises further help students develop the planning and problem-solving skills of an M&A lawyer and expose students to the documents and issues at the heart of an M&A practice.
•  More narrative, fewer cases. Many legal concepts are covered through concise explanatory text instead of judicial opinions. This keeps the book a manageable size while providing more depth in areas central to an M&A practice. The text integrates note-type material into the text enhancing readability.
