Prof. Coates seeks R.A. for M&A book

HLS Administrative Updates 2013-04-29

Prof. Coates seeks R.A. for book: Prof. John Coates is looking for research assistants to help him with his new book on Mergers & Acquisitions Law. The book will be based on his teaching of the subject and his experience as a partner at Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz. The book will be for both those who focus on large public company acquisitions and for those who focus on middle market private company acquisitions, buyouts and roll-ups. The book will differ from existing M&A casebooks as it will focus on law, not finance. A large share of the text will be business school-style cases. The book will be organized around a typology of M&A deals including ownership structure, control structure, industry, and movements in the M&A cycle. Please send resumes to Lise Berg,  lberg at for consideration.
