European capital markets law has developed rapidly in recent years. The former directives have been replaced by regulations and numerous implementing legal acts aimed at ensuring a level playing field across the EU. The financial crisis has given further impetus to the development of a European supervisory structure. This book systematises the European law and examines the underlying concepts from a broadly interdisciplinary perspective. National experiences in selected Member States – Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom – are also explored. The first chapter deals with the foundations of capital markets law in Europe, the second explains the basics, and the third examines the regime on market abuse. Chapter four explores the disclosure system and chapter five the roles of intermediaries, such as financial analysts, rating agencies and proxy advisers. Short selling and high frequency trading is described in chapter six. Chapter seven deals with financial services and chapter eight explains compliance and corporate governance in investment firms. Chapter nine illustrates the regulation of benchmarks. Finally, chapter ten deals with public takeovers. Throughout the book emphasis is placed on legal practice, and frequent reference is made to the key decisions of supervisory authorities and courts.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Jura - Zivilrecht / Handelsrecht, Gesellschaftsrecht, Kartellrecht, Wirtschaftsrecht, Note: 14,5, Eberhard-Karls-Universitat Tubingen (Juristische Fakultat), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Nicht zuletzt durch die jetzige Wirtschaftskrise hat sich gezeigt, dass das Aktien- und Kapitalmarktrecht stets anpassungs-, wandelungs- und reformbedurftig ist.(1) Doch gibt es Bereiche des Aktien- und Kapitalmarktrechts in denen uber Reformen nicht erst seit kurzer Zeit, sondern bereits seit Jahrzehnten diskutiert und gestritten wird. Zu nennen ist hier insbesondere die Vorschrift des 23 Abs.5 AktG(2), in der das Prinzip der aktienrechtlichen Satzungs - strenge" verkorpert ist. So regelt 23 Abs.5, dass die Satzung (scil: einer AG) von den Vorschriften des Gesetzes (scil: Aktiengesetz) nur abweichen kann, wenn dies ausdrucklich zugelassen ist. Erganzende Bestimmungen der Satzung sind zulassig, es sei denn, dass das Gesetz (scil: Aktiengesetz) eine abschliessende Regelung enthalt." Da solche Ausnahmeregelungen im Aktiengesetz jedoch kaum vorhanden sind, (3) wird schnell deutlich, dass 23 Abs.5(4) zu einer erheblichen Einschrankung der Gestaltungsfreiheit bei Aktiengesellschaften fuhrt. Diese werden nahezu dem gesamten kodifizierten Aktienrecht unterworfen. Auch war die Regelung des 23 Abs.5 mit ihrer einschneidenden Wirkung zuletzt erst Thema des 67. Deutschen Juristentags(5), welcher sich mit der Frage beschaftigt hat, ob sich nicht besondere Regeln fur borsennotierte und geschlossene Gesellschaften empfehlen?."

Responding to the growing importance of economic reasoning in legal scholarship, this innovative work provides an essential introduction to the economic tools which can usefully be employed in legal reasoning. It is geared specifically towards those without a great deal of exposure to economic thinking and provides law students, legal scholars and practitioners with a practical toolbox to shape their writing, understanding and case preparation. The book’s clear focus on economic methods poses a refreshing change to conventional textbooks in this area, which tend to focus on content-related theories. Recognising that it is often difficult to derive adequate conclusions for legal arguments without first understanding the methodological limitations of economic studies, this book provides a comprehensive coverage of the most important economic concepts in order to bridge this gap. These include: • game theory • public choice and social choice theory • behavioural economics • empirical research design • basic statistics. Owing to its concise and accessible style, Economic Methods for Lawyers will provide an invaluable companion for legal scholars or practitioners who wish to utilise economic methods for developing legal argument.

Contract Governance

This book introduces and develops Contract Governance as a new approach to contract theory. While the concept of governance has already been developed in Williamson's seminal article, it has, ironically, not received much attention in general contract law theory. Indeed, Contract Governance appears to be an important and necessary complement to corporate governance and in fact, as the second, equally important pillar of governance research in the core of private law. With this in mind, Grundmann, Möslein, and Riesenhuber provide a novel approach in setting an international and interdisciplinary research agenda for developing contract law scholarship. Contract Governance focuses particularly on the ways in which a governance perspective leads to research questions that have been neglected in traditional contract law scholarship, and how, from a governance perspective, the questions are dealt with in a different manner and style. Combining substantive chapters and commentaries, this collection of essays addresses an array of topics, including: third party impact and contract governance problems in herd behaviour; governance of networks of contracts; governance in long-term contractual relationships; contract governance and rule setting; and contract governance and political dimensions.

Constitutional litigation in general attracts two distinct types of conflict: disputes of a highly politicized or culturally controversial nature and requests from citizens claiming a violation of a fundamental constitutional right. The side-by-side comparison between the U.S. Supreme Court and the German Federal Constitutional Court provides a novel socio-legal approach in studying constitutional litigation, focusing on conditions of mobilisation, decision-making and implementation. This updated and revised second edition includes a number of new contributions on the political status of the courts in their democratic political cultures.

Statistical Confidentiality

Because statistical confidentiality embraces the responsibility for both protecting data and ensuring its beneficial use for statistical purposes, those working with personal and proprietary data can benefit from the principles and practices this book presents. Researchers can understand why an agency holding statistical data does not respond well to the demand, “Just give me the data; I’m only going to do good things with it.” Statisticians can incorporate the requirements of statistical confidentiality into their methodologies for data collection and analysis. Data stewards, caught between those eager for data and those who worry about confidentiality, can use the tools of statistical confidentiality toward satisfying both groups. The eight chapters lay out the dilemma of data stewardship organizations (such as statistical agencies) in resolving the tension between protecting data from snoopers while providing data to legitimate users, explain disclosure risk and explore the types of attack that a data snooper might mount, present the methods of disclosure risk assessment, give techniques for statistical disclosure limitation of both tabular data and microdata, identify measures of the impact of disclosure limitation on data utility, provide restricted access methods as administrative procedures for disclosure control, and finally explore the future of statistical confidentiality.
