The integration of foreign concepts into local legal systems not only leads to a multitude of new questions, it also creates a challenge for any lawyer practicing in this area. Clients expect their professional advisors to handle legal problems likely to arise abroad and to communicate and cooperate efficiently with foreign counsel.
The book features a collection of reports by experienced young practitioners from seventeen different jurisdictions, along with a general report for a working session organised by the Corporate Acquisitions and Joint Ventures and Tax Law Commissions of l¿Association internationale des jeunes avocats (AIJA) for the AIJA Annual Congress in Lisbon in August 2002. Each national report follows the same structure as the general report, but from a local perspective.
