This book examines in detail the principles that determine which national law applies to different transnational securities transactions. Whenever a security needs to be admitted and registered at a foreign stock exchange, the local rules and regulations have to be followed. Although there has been much analysis on the applicability of a specific national law to transnational securities transactions and public offerings, The Law of Cross-Border Securities Transactions goes one step further to examine carefully the general conflict of laws, rules and mechanisms on different aspects of securities transactions. * Provides a clear overview of the issues and pitfalls * Carefully considers the general conflict of laws, rules and mechanisms on different aspects of securities transactions * Written by an acknowledged expert in the area, backed by a team of international contributors * Highly recommended reading for legal practitioners, compliance officers and all those who work in the field of international banking and finance
