  • ‘I got hold of your book "Sale of Shares and Businesses" and would like to congratulate you for an excellent effort in corporate M&As. It is quite invaluable for us in Cyprus since we employ similar principles particularly due to the fact that our Company law is based on Companies Act 1948. This would undoubtedly become a classic and I am sure would grow to become a multi-volume series.'
