Kluwer Law International


In the pursuit or contemplation of international commercial activities, numerous questions of law arise. These volumes in the International Encyclopaedia of Laws answer these questions in a single resource.

'Commercial law' covers merchants' status and obligations (such as bookkeeping), their bankruptcy, and their instruments for business. 'Economic law', a relatively new legal branch, deals with state intervention in economic activities and includes law of establishment, law of competition, and state regulation of conditions of commercial transactions.

Specific topics covered in this work include broker/client relations, contracts affecting competition, and government taxation incentives for economic activities.

This concise work provides a regularly updated source of key information, written by experts in the field, at both the national and international levels. It is therefore an invaluable resource for both academics and practitioners.
