    Merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions have increased dramatically both in number and volume around the world in the last decades. Spanning share purchase agreements, asset purchase agreements, shareholder agreements and joint venture arrangements, this area of activity gives rise to an expanding number of disputes. As a consensual and private mechanism, arbitration offers a number of benefits.

    Fully updated, this new edition features leading experts in the field of international arbitration who provide legal and practical guidance on the key types of dispute likely to arise from M&A transactions (eg, warranty claims, shareholder disputes, claims relating to completion accounts), and offer procedural and tactical tips for arbitration arising from them. The content also covers the fundamental questions of arbitrability, confidentiality, freedom to choose the governing law (and questions of mandatory law) and enforceability in many key jurisdictions. Together, the contributors provide a one-stop guide to the legal, tactical and practical aspects of arbitration in today's M&A market.

    Whether you are a lawyer in private practice or are involved in M&A in the broadest sense, this commercially focused title will provide you with holistic, practical insight into the arbitration of M&A transactions.
