1.1 Cash Flow, Risk, Agency, Information, Investments The first volume dealt with the management of: cash flow (and the exchange of goods and services); risk; agency relationships; and information. The firm m- ages these aspects by legal tools and practices in the context of all commercial transactions. The second volume discussed investments. As voluntary contracts belong to the most important legal tools available to the firm, the second volume provided an - troduction to the general legal aspects of generic investment contracts and p- ment obligations. This volume discusses funding transactions, exit, and a particular category of decisions raising existential questions (business acquisitions). Transactions which can be regarded as funding transactions from the perspective of a firm raising the funding can be regarded as investment transactions from the perspective of an - vestor that provides the funding. Although the perspective chosen in this volume is that of a firm raising funding, this volume will simultaneously provide infor- tion about the legal aspects of many investment transactions. 1.2 Funding, Exit, Acquisitions Funding transactions are obviously an important way to manage cash flow. All - vestments will have to be funded in some way or another. The firm’s funding mix will also influence risk in many ways. Funding. The most important way to raise funding is through retained profits and by using existing assets more efficiently. The firm can also borrow money from a bank, or issue debt, equity, or mezzanine securities to a small group of - vestors.

Die Ideengeschichte der deutschsprachigen Zivilrechtswissenschaften hat nicht wirklich Konjunktur. Dennoch tut solch eine Ideengeschichte Not: für eine Besinnung auf das Gesamtbild in den deutschsprachigen Rechtswissenschaften selbst, jedoch durchaus auch, um ein Bild der deutschsprachigen Zivilrechtswissenschaften hinauszutragen nach Europa und darüber hinaus. Dies gilt gerade in einer Zeit, in der Ideen zirkulieren und ihr Zirkulieren auch in besonderem Maße geeignet ist, transnationale Rechtswirklichkeit zu prägen. Zu solch einer Ideengeschichte sollen die hier versammelten Einzeldarstellungen deutschsprachiger Zivilrechtslehrer einen Beitrag leisten. Der zweibändigen Edition liegt die Ringvorlesung „Deutschsprachige Zivilrechtslehrer des 20. Jahrhunderts in Berichten ihrer Schüler“ zugrunde, die die Herausgeber an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, der Europa-Universität Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder), und der Ruhr-Universität Bochum durchgeführt haben.

Cet ouvrage a été réalisé à l'initiative de l'Association du bicentenaire du Code de commerce suite au colloque organisé en Sorbonne les 1er et 2 février 2007 et à ceux en régions durant toute l'année 2007. Il est le fruit d'un travail de collaboration entre les praticiens et les théoriciens. Les intervenants ont exposé leur point de vue sur la codification commerciale. La partie historique, à travers plusieurs exemples précis, nous éclaire sur l'évolution du droit du commerce au droit économique. L'usage de la technique de codification en droit des affaires, sous toutes les latitudes et dans les systèmes de droit romano-germaniques et anglo-saxons est passé au crible de l'analyse. Au plan du droit substantiel, les rapports entre le Code de commerce et les sociétés commerciales, le droit des entreprises en difficulté, et le droit financier, ont été traités par les plus Hautes autorités juridiques et judiciaires. Est aussi analysé le rôle des juridictions spécialisées, ainsi que celui des modes alternatifs de résolution des conflits. Par des exemples précis issus à la fois du droit national et des expériences internationales, cet ouvrage auquel ont collaboré des personnalités des mondes politique, judiciaire et universitaire, tente d'apporter un éclairage à la fois historique et contemporain et permet de mieux appréhender le lien entre les entreprises et la justice.

Although some provisions of the Directive are obligatory for all Member States, two key provisions have been made optional: the non-frustration rule, which requires the board to obtain the prior authorization of the general meeting of shareholders before taking any action that could result in the frustration of the bid; and the breakthrough rule, restricting significant transfer and voting rights during the time allowed for acceptance of the bid. Other relevant legal issues covered in the course of the analysis include the following: A { the right of establishment as a right of legal persons; A { vertical vs.

The European Company ('SE') is a legal entity offering a European perspective for businesses. Its purpose is to allow businesses that wish to extend their activities beyond their home Member State to operate throughout the EU on the basis of one set of rules and a unified management system. The book explains how to set up and organise a European Company, as well as setting out the text of the EC instruments (a Regulation and a Directive) serving as its legal basis, and a list of national implementing laws. This second volume reports on the countries which have legislated during 2005 and 2006. Divided into two sections, it first offers critical review of the usefulness of, and the opportunities presented by, this new vehicle; analyses the Regulation and the Directive; and examines the tax aspects of the SE. The second part reports on each of the Member States.

The role that payments play within the general framework of financial services in the EC is indispensable for the realization of a true single European market including, inter alia, the conditions of cross-border purchasing, the legal framework of consumer protection, and the technical standards against fraud in payment systems. The Commission's New Legal Framework for payment services in the internal market - as evidenced by the EC Payment Services Directive (PSD) - represents an important step towards the completion of an initiative for a Single Euro Payments Area and, more broadly, EU-wide.

The planned European legal form Societas Privata Europaea (SPE) is a limited liability company of a closed group of shareholders, and thus is comparable to the German GmbH. At the European-level, the SPE serves as a supplement to the European Limited Liability Company (SE), which proved to be too difficult for small and medium-sized companies for various reasons. The SPE will be introduced on the basis of a European regulation, the content of which has been largely agreed to by the member states.

International Law in Financial Regulation and Monetary Affairs

The early twenty-first century has seen a conspicuous absence of formal international law concerning money and finance. This book argues that this lack of formal international regulation was a significant contributing factor to the global financial crisis that began in 2007. It focuses on this lack of global substantive principles and 'hard law' rules in the field of financial regulation and monetary affairs, and analyses the emerging framework within international law that aims to govern financial institutions and markets. The global financial crisis has demonstrated the essential need for financial and monetary regulatory reform, and for the establishment of appropriate mechanisms for the settlement of financial disputes and for the regulation of cross-border financial institutions. This book therefore presents the foundations of solutions that could fill these critical gaps in international financial law. It addresses cross-border issues, financial regulation, and provides detailed analyses of monetary policies and regulation. This book is an updated collection of papers first published in the Special Edition of the Journal of International Economic Law on 'The Quest for International Law in Financial Regulation and Monetary Affairs' (Volume 12, Number 3, September 2010), which also show that the regulatory hands-off approach was not replicated in other areas of international economic law. International trade regulation witnessed an increased number of international rules and the reinforcement of a rule-oriented, if not rule-based, approach. Judicial dispute settlement and retaliation, exclusively based upon international ruling and authorization, was reinforced. Given the importance of trade regulation and WTO law, which has an established institutional and legal framework, the book therefore provides a much-needed comparative approach.

European Legal Methodology

EU law is an autonomous legal system. It requires its own methodology, independent of the national traditions of the Member States. The contributions to this volume provide elements of a genuinely European legal method, discussing the foundations of European legal methodology in Roman law and in the development of national legal methods in the 19th century, as well as the economic and comparative background. Core issues of legal methods-such as the sources of law, the interpretation of EU primary law and secondary legislation, the concretization of general clauses, and judicial development of the law-are also analyzed. Furthermore, the temporal effects of EU directives and of judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union raise specific issues of EU law. Contributions are also devoted to issues of a multi-level legal system. Beyond general aspects, directives in particular raise special questions: what is their impact on the interpretation of national law, and what are the methodological consequences of a transposition of directives beyond their original scope ('gold-plating')? Further contributions inquire into methodological issues in contract law, employment law, company law, capital market law, and competition law. They illustrate the general aspects of European legal methods with a view to specific applications, and they also reveal specific issues of methods which occur in these areas. Finally, legal methods from national perspectives of different Member States-namely France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, and the UK-are examined. The book reveals the national traditions of legal methods and the national preconceptions, and it illustrates the application of EU legal methods in different national contexts.

Das Kapital im 21. Jahrhundert

Wie entstehen die Akkumulation und die Distribution von Kapital? Welche Dynamiken sind dafür maßgeblich? Fragen der langfristigen Evolution von Ungleichheit, der Konzentration von Wohlstand in wenigen Händen und nach den Chancen für ökonomisches Wachstum bilden den Kern der Politischen Ökonomie. Aber befriedigende Antworten darauf gab es bislang kaum, weil aussagekräftige Daten und eine überzeugende Theorie fehlten. In Das Kapital im 21. Jahrhundert analysiert Thomas Piketty ein beeindruckendes Datenmaterial aus 20 Ländern, zurückgehend bis ins 18. Jahrhundert, um auf dieser Basis die entscheidenden ökonomischen und sozialen Abläufe freizulegen. Seine Ergebnisse stellen die Debatte auf eine neue Grundlage und definieren zugleich die Agenda für das künftige Nachdenken über Wohlstand und Ungleichheit. Piketty zeigt uns, dass das ökonomische Wachstum in der Moderne und die Verbreitung des Wissens es uns ermöglicht haben, den Ungleichheiten in jenem apokalyptischen Ausmaß zu entgehen, das Karl Marx prophezeit hatte. Aber wir haben die Strukturen von Kapital und Ungleichheit andererseits nicht so tiefgreifend modifiziert, wie es in den prosperierenden Jahrzehnten nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg den Anschein hatte. Der wichtigste Treiber der Ungleichheit – nämlich die Tendenz von Kapitalgewinnen, die Wachstumsrate zu übertreffen – droht heute extreme Ungleichheiten hervorzubringen, die am Ende auch den sozialen Frieden gefährden und unsere demokratischen Werte in Frage stellen. Doch ökonomische Trends sind keine Gottesurteile. Politisches Handeln hat gefährliche Ungleichheiten in der Vergangenheit korrigiert, so Piketty, und kann das auch wieder tun.
