Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Dale Grimes and Luke Smith worked with Teresa Bonder at Alston and Bird to update the U.S. section of the newly-released Lex Mundi Pre-Merger Notification Global Practice Guide. The guide provides a review of the pre-merger notification procedures by 45 jurisdictions throughout the world, including the United States. Topics covered include whether notification is required, the type of information to be submitted, the timing of waiting periods, and the penalties for non-compliance. The guide is designed to be a practice resource for Lex Mundi members.
