Two of my former colleagues at King & Spalding LLP, Jaron Brown and Tyler Giles, sent me their recently published book, Stock Purchase Agreements Line by Line. Jaron Brown made partner in King & Spalding’s M&A group before moving in-house to Novelis, Inc. Tyler Giles moved in-house earlier in his career (to Equifax, Inc.) and has since moved back to law firm life as a partner at FisherBroyles LLP.
The book appears aimed at practitioners, but it could also be a valuable resource for those who teach M&A or drafting courses. The book includes various practical pointers for drafting typical provisions in a stock purchase agreement and, as the title suggests, goes through an SPA line by line. The authors are true experts in their subject matter, and I look forward to using the book.
