Law Made in Germany – Symposium in Düsseldorf, September 3, 2015

DAV LOGOOn September 3, 2015, the German Bar Association (Deutscher Anwaltverein) presents, as part of the wider initiative “Law Made in Germany”, the second symposium on the topic. The symposium looks at Germany’s position in the international competition amongst jurisdictions (Kampf der Rechtsordnungen), with a special focus on M&A agreements and post-M&A disputes under German law. As post M&A disputes account for a substantial part of my work, I would have loved to attend, but unfortunately, I cannot make it. But I encourage you to check out the programme.

Law Made in Germany has produced brochures on German law and its virtues in English, French, Arabic, in Chinese, Russian, and Vietnamese. The brochure is also worth having a look.
