Limits of Sovereignty in International Commercial Practice Hardback
Edited by T.S.M. Henquet, S.M.G. Koopmans, G.J.M Verburg
Under the broad heading of globalisation, issues such as the sovereignty of states and the competences of international organisations have become everyday topics.
Who regulates the multinationals? What are the powers of the UN Security Council? How long is the arm of US law? Do diplomats have to pay parking tickets? What should be done with criminal heads of state? These questions concern the limits of sovereignty, and they form an important part of everyday commercial legal practice.
This book offers the first analysis of the work of legal counsel in a global law firm involved with questions of sovereignty.
It also offers insight into the experience of these issues within different practice areas, such as litigation, finance, regulation and competition.
