About the Book

Designed for use in the Corporate Finance class, increasingly important in any skills-based curriculum, this casebook features a strong coverage of M&A, bankruptcy, finance, and valuation. The valuation unit covers math from a lawyer’s perspective, focusing on the intuitions behind the valuation techniques in a way that will facilitate interaction with bankers and accountants in practice. Basic Excel skills are taught along the way.

The second edition has been updated to include the most recent developments through 2017, and includes leading recent decisions from the New York Court of Appeals, United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the United Kingdom Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court of Canada, reflecting the increasingly global nature of corporate finance.
