In business enterprises of all kinds and sizes, international acquisitions—to access foreign markets, to provide foreign production or marketing capacity, to obtain regulatory approvals, to acquire complementary product or service lines, or simply to spread product, service or market risk and to reduce costs—have become the norm.

Today more than ever, legal practitioners and many others involved in cross-border acquisitions need a user-friendly source of information covering the most important jurisdictions. International Business Acquisitions has proven its great value over the ten 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 Third 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 Third Edition include the following:

  • new contributions from China, Israel, Luxembourg, Austria, and Argentina, making a total of 34 jurisdictions;

  • effects of the spectacular growth of private equity investment vehicles as major players in the international mergers and acquisitions space;

  • effects of the increasing impact of European Union regulations and directives on corporate transactions;

  • effects of the increasing sophistication and even harmonisation in 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 48 independent firms with more than 10,000 lawyers in 37 countries and in more than 100 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, Third 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.
