Linda Misetich Dann, Brent Kraus, John Piasta, Ian Michael, Chris Simard and Beth Riley write the Canadian chapter in Lexology's Getting the Deal Through: Public M&A in Canada.
They look at types of transactions, statutes and regulations, laws that apply to cross-border transactions, sector-specific rules, duties of directors and controlling shareholders, what to consider in hostile transactions, tax issues, anti-corruption and sanctions laws—and much more.
Ian Michael also writes in a separate chapter on Cross-border M&A: The View from Canada. He describes the intense rise in deal activity in the final quarter of 2020 and in Q1 2021, political events affecting M&A—and industry matters including material adverse effect clauses, ESG, the transition in the energy sector, SPACs and Canadian M&A resilience and adaptability.
