Commercial and Economic Law
International Encyclopaedia for Commercial and Economic Law
Edited by Prof. Jules Stuyck & Prof. Evelyne Terryn
In the pursuit or contemplation of international commercial activities, numerous questions of law arise. The volumes included 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 business instruments. 'Economic law', a relatively new legal branch, deals with state intervention in economic activities and includes laws governing establishment, competition law, and state regulation overseeing the conditions for 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, and is written by experts in the field, at both the national and international levels. It is therefore an invaluable resource for both academics and practitioners.
