When executing public M&A transactions, dealmakers need to understand local market practice as well as the local regulatory environment. 

Mayer Brown is pleased to present this Public M&A Spotlight which compares the rules and regulations governing public M&A transactions in the US, the UK, France, Germany and Hong Kong, including the key differences in deal structures and timetables. It has been prepared by a dedicated team of Mayer Brown partners who regularly work together, share knowledge and cooperate on a cross-border basis in relation to public M&A deals. Our lawyers’ experience in comparing and contrasting takeover regimes helps us to analyze different approaches to issues with a view to finding the most effective way to execute our clients’ public M&A transactions.
