We have this week published the fourth edition of the "Herbert Smith Freehills Code Companion", which is an index designed to assist UK M&A practitioners when considering Takeover Code issues.
The Code Companion enables readers to search for particular topics in the Code and then points the reader to the most important Code rules and public sources of guidance and information from the Takeover Panel on those topics. In preparing the Code Companion, we have included the topics we believe you are most likely to search for.
As practitioners will be aware, the Panel must always be consulted in cases of doubt and general guidance given by the Panel is not a substitute for consulting the Panel on the application of the Code in a particular case; however, we hope that you will find the Code Companion a useful starting point when dealing with public M&A.
If you would like further information on any of the issues covered in the Code Companion please ask your usual Herbert Smith Freehills contact.
