Private Law in the International Arena contains 57 original contributions from renowned lawyers from all over the globe. It analyzes a wide variety of effects that cross-border activities have on the operation of private law, ranging from corporate and insolvency law to labor law, property law, the law of obligations, family law, European law, and lex mercatoria. Civil procedure aspects, in national courts and arbitration proceedings, are also dealt with. Since hardly anything is achieved nowadays without crossing some borders, this book is of the utmost importance to scholars and practitioners alike. Indeed, it provides a unique source of insight into the problems encountered and their possible solutions. All contributions have been written in honor of an eminent private international law scholar, Prof. Dr. Kurt Siehr of the University of Zurich, on the occasion of his 65th anniversary.
