"... there is a lack of a clear and simple exposition of the CISG for students and practitioners. That is the role of the current book, which it fills admirably. All of the issues that have been raised in the cases and the literature are considered, but without excessive detail. This is a book that will do much to make the CISG an easily understandable text for all users, student and pracitioner alike." Preface by Professor Eric E. Bergsten

The legal environment in which publicly listed companies operate in Germany has changed fundamentally in the last 10 years - a process that culminated in 2002 with the new German Takeover Act. The combination of this new act with favourable changes to the tax regime is expected to boost M&A prospects in Germany. For companies seeking to enter the German market and for their advisors this book provides an essential guide to the legal issues arising from a takeover and merger from both the bidder's and the target's perspective.
