This week course considers the law of mergers and acquisitions in the United States—that is, the rules that govern the combination of business enterprises under American law.
It begins with basic background in U.S. corporate law, including why economic actors use corporations to pursue business affairs, how the separation of ownership and control of the corporation gives rise to agency costs, how shareholder voting to elect the corporation’s directors influences those costs, and the fiduciary duties of directors under Delaware law, the dominant source of state corporate law in the United States.
