Carissa's Column: Getting the Deal Through

Getting the Deal Through” is a series of volumes addressing “essential questions concerning a particular field of business law…answered by expert practitioners with regard to their respective jurisdictions.”

Luckily, for those who do not have the print volumes, Law Business Research Limited provides a website that gives excerpts. You can retrieve an overview of legal requirements related to your topic of interest (e.g., Corporate Governance, Insolvency & Restructuring, Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity-Fund Formation, Private Equity-Transaction, etc.). Within each topic, you can narrow the results further to address specific questions, and further yet to focus on specific countries. At the end of each entry, you can click on “Next Step” to find the firm that was responsible for the entry, and visit their website or contact them for further information. Of course, none of this constitutes legal advice, and the site itself encourages users to “Always seek specific legal advice from experienced local advisers.” But if you’re just interested in getting a basic understanding of deal-related laws in the U.S. and internationally, this site seems to be a great place to start.
