Different country, different culture (or how different legal systems view deal-making)
Thursday 12 October (1615 - 1730)
Corporate and M&A Law Committee
Civil law, common law, religious laws and customary laws: the world has a diversity of legal systems. Concepts such as company law, fiduciary duties and due interest may differ accordingly or even may not exist. The panel, which shall be composed of representatives of different legal systems, will analyse the influence of diverging concepts on deal-making and its practical consequences and cases.
