Frank Aquila and Brian Hamilton Co-Author Article Linking Cross-Border Transactions and Cross-Fertilization

August 2010

Mr. Aquila and Mr. Hamilton co-authored “Cross-Border Mergers & Acquisitions: A Study in Convergence and Cross-Fertilization,” an article in the July issue of Bloomberg Law Reports – Mergers & Acquisitions. Mr. Aquila and Mr. Hamilton explore an increasing level of cross-border transactional activity over the past two decades, particularly between the United States and Europe, that has been accompanied by harmonization of corporate and transactional laws and regulations, as well as a cross-fertilization of “deal technology,” a phenomenon they contend “contributes to an active transaction environment by allowing the best ideas and practices to develop and take hold, regardless of the market in which they began.”
