M&A disputes can be unique in their hostility and complexity. The M&A Arbitration Guide – published by Global Arbitration Review – is a practical guide on what merger parties should think about when it comes to disputes. It pools the wisdom of specialists on how to prevent these disputes arising and how best to resolve them when it is too late. The guide is structured in two sections. Part I consists of 10 chapters on planning and procedural issues, covering everything from drafting clauses to how to structure contracts to minimise the potential for disputes. Part II offers a geographical survey of important differences in national laws that may affect the outcome of a dispute. It is written by 39 specialists from a variety of backgrounds and takes a practical approach throughout.
