Product description

In the recent years, the world has witnessed a series of impressive, albeit disruptive, developments in the cross-border eco-political, technological, commercial and regulatory landscapes, which impact heavily on how international businesses formulate and execute their growth strategies. As the global economies continue to integrate, increasingly driven by the influence of China’s Belt and Road initiative, it is time to re-examine the legal and commercial factors affecting global investments and cross-border mergers and acquisitions.

This book provides a comprehensive overview and practical guidance for business executives and legal practitioners in global business projects, with a review of legal developments in Hong Kong and Mainland China as well as certain representative Western and Middle East countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and United Arabs Emirates and the restrictions and regulations on foreign investments in those countries.

Readers will benefit from the model documents, practical examples and explanatory notes which exemplify the steps, procedures, documentation and issues involved in cross-border M&A transactions.
