This is the 2015 edition of "Regulation of Public M&A in Europe" produced by Herbert Smith Freehills along with other contributors.
The purpose of this guide is to summarise the rules applying across key European jurisdictions to certain key issues arising in structuring and implementing Public M&A transactions.
The 2015 European Public M&A market has been buoyed by low-interest rates and a re-emergence of cross-border transactions, particularly in the UK where there has been an increase in bid activity since the last edition of this guide in July 2013.
This guide reflects the latest law and market practice in the jurisdictions covered. In all cases, specific advice should be sought about the detailed application of the rules in each jurisdiction.
This guide is not intended to deal with EU or national competition or anti-trust merger control laws.
