  • Details

    International Business Acquisitions has proven its great value, over the eighteen years since the first edition, as a clear guide to the major legal issues and to the all-important process of informed due diligence in each jurisdiction. The Fourth Edition retains the book’s invaluable country-by-country presentation, with each country contribution in a common format to make comparison as straightforward as possible. And, as in previous editions, the subject of due diligence is treated in a separate chapter, with individual country annotations.

    In addition to updating and substantial expansion of content, notable features of the Fourth Edition include the following:

    • new contributions from Chile, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Poland, Russia, Thailand and Turkey, making a total of 40 jurisdictions;
    • the continuing impact of European Union regulations and directives on corporate transactions and the increasing impact of bilateral trade and investment treaties;
    • a new emphasis in due diligence enquiries on privacy, anti-money-laundering and bribery (corrupt practices) compliance and the ownership and use of domain names and social media links; and
    • the continuing increase in the sophistication and even harmonisation of competition (antitrust) laws.

    International Business Acquisitions is the result of a co-operative effort by member firms of the World Law Group, an alliance of 50 + leading independent firms with more than 15,000 lawyers working in 65 countries and in more than 300 international business centres. As an easily-accessed desk reference for lawyers, business executives and others concerned with the acquisition of the securities or business assets of a company located outside their own national jurisdiction, International Business Acquisitions, Fourth Edition, has no peers. It is also directly relevant to those representing the sellers in such transactions, as they must anticipate and prepare for the foreign buyer’s requirements and concerns.
