Baker McKenzie’s Global Private M&A Guide is a comprehensive resource examining the impact of new and existing laws affecting deal structuring and private M&A generally in nearly 40 jurisdictions.

Conducting cross-border M&A transactions in the current climate is more challenging than ever – in addition to an economic slowdown and geopolitical concerns, businesses continue to face a rapidly changing and increasingly uncertain legal and regulatory landscape. So, staying up to date on the latest market trends and legal developments is critical.

The Guide provides a holistic overview of the key legal and regulatory M&A framework in each jurisdiction through all stages of the transaction process, including structuring the deal, getting to signing (e.g., preliminary documents and negotiating the agreement), and understanding the broader legal landscape. It includes an overview of tax considerations, employment law obligations, anti-bribery concerns and, notably, the latest on merger control and foreign investment restrictions.

We hope you find this guide useful in your M&A journey!
