  • Mergers and Acquisitions In Nigeria Law and Practice By Dr Fabian Ajogwu SAN ()
    Merger & Acquisition is an area that is as dynamic as the market itself, and allows for deal and process innovations that spur new regulations. In dreaming up the shareholder rights plan, or the position pill, in 1982 to give boards of a target company a chance to “level the playing field” and have time to weigh offers, renowned M & A lawyer, Martin Lipton explained that they “..had reached a whole new plateau of hostile takeovers, and there was really very little in the way of defense to them”. Lipton’s innovation did not come into popular use until after the Delaware Supreme Court cleared the path with a 1985 decision.

    The book examines issues of corporate governance, corporate control & pursuit of profits, and protection of shareholders and ends with useful case studies, court forms and templates, which are intended to serves as a guiding-thread to the extensive literature on the transactional aspect of M&A.

    The book: ‘Mergers & Acquisitions in Nigeria: Law & Practice (Second Edition)’ with a foreword by Mr. Oscar Onyema Chief Executive, Nigerian Stock Exchange, highlights the meaning of mergers and acquisitions. Also, exams the role courts play in developing the law on this subject. “It also traced the recent developments in accounting and financial reporting, and the financial reporting standards applicable to mergers and acquisitions”. Published in 2014, the 554 page book has eight very useful appendices.

  • EFCC Laws Of The Federation 2004 ( Criminal Code Cap C38) ()
    The Criminal Code is an ancient document dating back to the 17th Century. Transported to Nigerian through the colonial vehicle, it became and effective weapon in the hands of explorers to subjugate their captured territories and subjects. Initially a document only useful in the Northern protectorate of Nigeria soon covered the whole country. But by 1960, the North, abandoned it for the Penal Code. As at today, it is the only penal instrument useable only in the whole of Southern Nigeria.

    Despite its age, it has remained the main document for criminal trials, companion of layers, law enforcers, jurists and general readers.

    We have introduced cases and materials for those seeking a summary of key issues.

    The determination of the Obasanjo administration to fight corruption in all its ramifications led to the emergence of EFCC. It is obvious that the Criminal Code cannot provide the needed speed and energy due to its age and verbose contents.

  • The Art of a Lawyer By B. Malik ()
    This book is a repository of enriching and enlightening articles on 'art of advocacy, courtmanship, lawyering and cross-examination of witness', by top notch legal luminaries from the Bench and the Bar, in addition to those from administrative and army functionaries, from America, England, Africa, Pakistan and of course India.
    I, as revising editor, was given the liberty of doing away with contents of the book which, may not be relevant to the contemporary times or considered obsolete. Having gone through the book in minute details, I find no room to substantiate that any of the articles, except two, can be dispensed with, though some of the articles by legal luminaries from America have dealt at length with the duty to and by the Jury in Court, as the articles also contain guidelines for behavioural attitude by advocates and lawyers, in course of Court proceedings, though the practice of Jury in Indian Courts has been done away with. Thus, the articles as 'Pole Star' have been and shall remain relevant for all times to come, having regard to the fact that the basic character and principles necessary for advocacy, courtmanship and lawyering can never change with times.
    Five articles by the renowned jurist, 'Justice V. R. Krishna Iyer', under the captions 'Adjudication in Trial Courts', 'Dynamic Lawyering, Juristic Engineering and Ethical Standards — Making of a Good Lawyer',
    'Free Legal Aid and Poor Litigants', 'Free Legal Aid Code-A Social Service Measure and 'The Bar Must Promote in Court', have been included in the instant edition. A new chapter entitled 'Golden Rules of Cross-Examination' has been introduced in the instant edition.
    The chapter on 'Classes of Witnesses and as to the Mode of Cross-Examining them', has been improved and enhanced with additional matter of case laws under the topics 'The Lying Witness', 'The Nervous Witness' and 'The Stupid Witness', with introduction of the types of witnesses with case laws wherever applicable, namely, 'Accomplice Witness', 'Biased or Interested or Partisan Witness', 'Child Witness', 'Exaggerating and Enthusiastic Witness', 'Deaf and Dumb Witness', 'Eye-witnesses', 'Guilty Witness', 'Party as Witness', 'Ignorant or Illiterate Witness', 'Police Witness', 'Court Witness', 'Pious Witness (Priests and Clergymen)', 'Conscientious Witness', 'Unwilling Witness', 'Excited witness' and 'Hypnotized Witness'.
    It is expected that this edition in its 59th year of publication will continue to render its dominant guidance and service in the arena of advocacy for the practising advocates, as well as serving as a sermon for and building up the character of, the enterprising lawyers.
