Ablauf der LV bei eingeschränktem Campusbetrieb


The course will be held in presence, taking into account all necessary security measures.  

Inhalte der LV

The course will deal with the structure and process of an M&A transaction. In addition to presenting different ways of structuring an M&A transaction, the main focus of the course will be the preparation and practical negotiation of a share purchase agreements. Good knowledge of contract and company law is necessary to be able to follow the course, since the course builds and expands on basic knowledge in those areas.

Students also get an overview of the economic interests of sellers and buyers, as well as how to represent those interests in a contract.
