Liquidity events fuel the community of venture-backed entrepreneurialism. These are seminal moments for startups, representing the validation of years of hard work developing and commercializing new ideas. Successful exits, however, are complex and delicate matters, demanding productive negotiation among multiple constituencies and across a wide range of financial and legal terms. These negotiations are contentious. The wisdom of experienced counsel can be instrumental in helping conflicting interests understand issues, devise solutions, and arrive at an agreement providing long-term benefit to all parties.

Technology M&A Case Strategies, written by one of four lawyers named to Forbes 2008 Midas List of Top Technology Dealmakers Worldwide, uses the sale of venturebacked Clear Shape Technologies to EDA giant Cadence Design Systems to take readers into the art of successful deal-making. The book delves into deal diplomacy and managing competing interests and discusses some of the key legal issues involved in technology mergers and acquisitions: intellectual property rights, shareholder interests, and carefully crafted representations, warranties, and indemnities/holdbacks. Technology M&A Case Strategies draws on the real-life experience of one of Silicon Valley's most renowned lawyers and is a valuable reference for aspiring dealmakers, including lawyers, investors, and executives.
