This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.
Unprecedented challenges have arisen in 2020 not only to the health and well-being of persons around the globe, but also to globalisation itself and, with it, the flow of capital. Whereas foreign investment has for a number of years been attracting increased attention, in the past year this trend has accelerated. This eighth edition provides a comprehensive guide to laws, regulations, policies and practices governing foreign investment in key international jurisdictions.
The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review fulfils an essential function. Updated every year, it provides a current perspective on a quickly evolving topic. Organised by topic rather than by jurisdiction, it allows readers to access rapidly not only the most recent developments on a given subject, but also the debate that led to and the context behind those developments. This fifth edition adds new topics to the Review, increasing its scope and utility to practitioners.
Whether a company is looking to list in its home country or is exploring listing outside of its own jurisdiction, it is important that the company and its management are aware from the outset of the legal requirements as well as potential pitfalls that may impact the offering. Moreover, once a company is public, there are ongoing jurisdiction-specific disclosure and other requirements with which it must comply. This fourth edition introduces the intricacies of taking a company public in these jurisdictions and serves as a guide for issuers and their directors and management.
