This last year saw Damian release the third edition of the book he co-authored, entitled Schemes, Takeovers and Himalayan Peaks. The 700-page work on M&A has made a significant contribution to the relevant law and, in the forward to the latest edition, Chief Justice T F Bathurst, Chief Justice of New South Wales, referred to the influence and importance of this work. “Earlier editions have established this book as the preeminent text on schemes of arrangement. This edition will be indispensable to any practitioner in the area and, dare I say it, to any judge required to determine whether to approve a scheme,” Bathurst wrote.
