Quick orientation with the German legal system, especially business law
Perfect manual for potential investors in the German market
This book presents a c1earand precise overview of the key aspects of German business law. It was written by attomeys involved in the daily practice of business law in Gennany and is aimed at people who wish to orient themselves quickly with the German legal system and the manner in which it impacts business pur chases, establishment, operations and liquidations. The first section of the book is devoted to an explanation of the major issues to be considered in acquiring or establishing a business in Gennany, whereas the second section focuses on areas of special consideration. In both sections special attention has been paid to highlighting and explaining the differences between the German legal system and that of the United States, though the intention is to pro vide infonnation that will prove valuable to all foreigners, particularly business men and women and lawyers advising c1ients with an interest in doing business in Gennany. Though it is the object of this book to present readers with a general orienta tion and the foundation for making infonned decisions conceming business trans actions in Gennany, it cannot possibly function as a substitute for case-specific professional advice and by no means purports to do so. Those readers who wish to foIlow up on any decisions they may have fonned on the basis of the material pre sented here are weIl advised to seek the guidance of qualified attomeys and tax advisors before entering into any binding obligations.
