Most current environmental law practice in commercial law firms is based on company mergers and acquisitions and other commercial transactions. This generally involves an assessment of the environmental issues applying to the transaction and the preparation of contractual provisions to apportion risk. This provides a particular challenge for multi-jurisdictional and cross-border transactions where the environmental law applying in each jurisdiction will be different.
Brumwell: Cross-Border Transactions & Environmental Law provides an overview of environmental law applying in major commercial jurisdictions. It looks at the national environmental law of each country and the way in which international and EU regimes are applied nationally.
This title addresses the key issues in each country relating to cross-border transaction including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and financing, dealing not only with legal provisions buy also with commercial practice in assessing and managing environmental risk. It provides essential background understanding for briefing clients, colleagues and other lawyers. With contributions from 15 different countries, the structure of this title enables the user to compare and contrast aspects of environmental law and practice between jurisdictions in this important growth area of practice.
This book will appeal to the specialist and non-specialist commercial lawyer in private practice or in-house, as well as non-lawyers in multinational organisations who need guidance on the environmental law applying in the countries in which their company operates.
