For Immediate Release

Lancaster, Pa. – Barley Snyder is proud to announce that attorney Brian Korman has had his paper comparing the cutthroat corporate world of mergers and acquisitions to the wildly popular HBO TV show “Game of Thrones” published in a prestigious law journal.

The paper, “The Corporate Games of Thrones and the Market for Corporate Control,” appears in the recent Volume 12, Issue 2 of the Journal of Business & Technology Law through the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. The paper was one of seven chosen for the latest edition of the journal.

“I’m a big fan of ‘Game of Thrones,’ and always thought there was a striking similarity between how takeovers in the corporate world happen and the plot of the show,” Korman said. “And when I started researching law journals to have the paper published, the Journal of Business & Technology Law seemed like the perfect landing spot.”

The paper examines the corporate control market – where underperforming or undervalued firms become attractive takeover targets by potential acquirers – and compares it to the rampaging, warring clans of “Game of Thrones,” the Emmy-winning show whose seventh season premieres July 16.

The journal is a successor to The Business Lawyer at the school and partners with the Business Law Division of the Maryland Bar Association and is one of the only journals of its kind dealing with national business and technology issues. The journal’s subscribers include policy makers, corporate law firms and law libraries.

At Barley Snyder, Korman works with businesses in general corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, start-ups and entity formation, succession planning and buy-sell agreements for family-owned businesses.
