The M&A Lawyers Library

The ABA's Mergers and Acquisitions Committee has just announced a major development on its website: 
Through the work of the Judicial Interpretations Working Group, chaired by Scott Whittaker and Jim Melville, we now have the M&A Lawyers Library online, a collection of timely articles and memos on topics of interest to M&A practitioners.  . . .  The site is accessible from the main page of our Committee website . . . .    
Here's a list of the currently available articles:
  • Analysis and Guidance for Use of Earnout Provisions
  • "Bringdown" conditions
  • Dispute Resolution Clauses in Purchase Price Adjustment Provisions
  • Judicial Interpretation of "Best Efforts" Clauses
  • Judicial Interpretation of Exclusivity and No-Shop Provisions
  • Judicial Interpretation of Financial Statement Representations in the Acquisition Context
  • Judicial Interpretations of Full Disclosure ("10b-5") - Representations
  • Material Adverse Change Provisions in Acquisition Agreements
  • No Undisclosed Liabilities Representations
  • Research Regarding Attorney-Client Privilege and Conflicts of Interest in Negotiated Acquisitions 
  • Third Party Beneficiary Issues in M&A Transactions
  • Time Limitations on Post-Closing Recovery for Breaches of Representations and Warranties: Survival Clause as a Contractual Statute of Limitations

While the materials are available only to members of the Mergers and Acquisitions Committee, its not that hard a club to join.
