BLG has launched an insightful resource that discusses the key facets of negotiating and completing an M&A deal, M&A Building Blocks.
This resource features a series of articles that provide an in-depth look into different aspects of M&A transactions from start to finish, such as confidentiality agreements, negotiating deal protections and advising special committees. While the emphasis is on deals involving public companies, BLG's M&A Building Blocks is also applicable to private M&A.
