Legal Aspects of Selling and Buying
provides practical answers to the most frequently raised questions in antitrust, franchising, and distribution law. Intended for antitrust lawyers, general practitioners, in-house counsel, and individuals involved in trade associations, this reference provides guidance in fielding questions from clients, and serves as a reliable reference in conducting transactions and managing disputes. Turn to it for answers regarding:
• Whether the seller must sell and with what restrictions
• Sales to a competitor-buyer (when the seller competes with the buyer)
• Franchise sales and franchising relationships
• New authority and new proposals
• Divergent approaches by federal and state antitrust enforcers
Designed both as a deskbook and reference treatise, this publication is organized by how questions arise in business and law; chapter titles and subheadings are in the form of questions and are followed by succinct, authoritative answers. Extensive footnotes provide expanded discussions for further research, with citations and cross-references to authority.
