Leading law firms, investment banks, corporations, pension funds, and corporate governance experts subscribe to The M&A Journal. The staff has been covering the field since the poison pill was a warrant. We take apart complex transactions and turn the daily trickle of information into a dramatic account of each deal from its beginning to its end. We identify legal and regulatory trends, and provide profiles of judges, M&A advisors and investors.

Who makes mistakes? Who scores victories? What tactics work or fail?
We tell you. We're your business.
