The SEC Is Looking for a New M&A Chief

Corp Fin has posted the job opening (if you click this, give it a few seconds to go to the posting) for the spot vacated by Brian Breheny – Chief of the Office of Mergers and Acquisitions. In the job posting, I was amused by how the SEC plugs it’s been voted the “3rd Best” place to work in the federal government. Since Brian got the job from outside the SEC, it’s not inconceivable that the SEC would hire from outside again. The posting closes on January 22nd.

Bebchuk v. Lipton

Recently, Directorship ran this interesting article on the debate between Marty Lipton and Lucian Bebchuk on the role of shareholders in corporations.

Marty also recently addressed the “Mergers, Acquisitions, and Split-Ups” course at Harvard Law School regarding “The Future of M&A.” The “Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Blog” has a link to this multiple hour address.
