This book examines in detail the principles that determine which national law applies to different transnational securities transactions. Whenever a security needs to be admitted and registered at a foreign stock exchange, the local rules and regulations have to be followed.

Although there has been much analysis on the applicability of a specific national law to transnational securities transactions and public offerings, The Law of Cross-Border Securities Transactions goes one step further to examine carefully the general conflict of laws, rules and mechanisms on different aspects of securities transactions.

  • Provides a clear overview of the issues and pitfalls
  • Carefully considers the general conflict of laws, rules and mechanisms on different aspects of securities transactions
  • Written by an acknowledged expert in the area, backed by a team of international contributors
  • Highly recommended reading for legal practitioners, compliance officers and all those who work in the field of international banking and finance.
