The most comprehensive guide to all techniques available to companies considering merger of two or more European companies, European Cross-Border Mergers and Reorganizations is the ideal reference tool for lawyers, auditors and scholars working in the field.

Providing everything a practitioner needs to co-ordinate a successful cross-border merger, the book analyses the EU Directives and how they have been applied in each of the main EU/EEA member states. The diverging rules for each jurisdiction are highlighted and explained enabling quick comparisons to be made between countries for assessing feasibility of the chosen technique.

As well as the requirements, formalities and potential pitfalls of cross-border mergers, each country analysis addresses the relevant aspects of corporate, employment and tax law such as informing shareholders and employees, verification of the legality of the merger, and language requirements.

The book also considers other reorganisation techniques, such as the creation of a Societas Europaea, a partial demerger, a hive down of some branches of activity or the transfer of a corporate seat, providing a guide to the best possible solution for a practitioner's client. Complete with a global comparative table of the key provisions written by local lawyers, European Cross-Border Mergers and Reorganizations is an easy-to-use reference work for legal, tax and audit professionals involved in mergers.
