The practice of international commercial law has become so complex since the onset of ‘globalisation’ that it has become virtually impossible for interested parties to collect their own copies of the various source materials. Hence this very welcome collection, which in its first edition quickly became a cornerstone resource for business lawyers.
Now, after six years, the editor has thoroughly updated this truly indispensable book, making it far and away the most complete collection of applicable treaties, institutional rules, regulations, model laws, and codes any international commercial law practitioner, scholar, or student will find anywhere. In numerous additional and updated texts, the Second Edition includes vital practical information on recent developments in such important aspects of the field as the following:-
- taking of evidence in arbitration;
- service of legal documents abroad;
- enforceability of court-issued and arbitral awards;
- the role of ‘gatekeepers’ such as credit rating agencies, securities analysts, and external auditors;
- global regulation of financial markets;
- disclosure of price-sensitive information; and
- regulatory measures against corruption and bribery.
There is increased attention also to influential areas like the extraterritorial effects of certain national laws and the growing use of non-statutory models such as the Unidroit principles. This is the only one-volume source for all the materials required for the effective practice of international commercial law: corporate governance codes, international contract principles, all major arbitration and mediation rules, conventions on applicable law and on jurisdiction and enforcement, guidance for ongoing disclosures, ethical conduct, UCP600 and INCOTERMS 2000, and much more.
It provides invaluable support for in-house counsel and corporate and business lawyers, and offers the scholar and student a peerless reference work.
