Sponsored by the Banking Law Committee (E) of the International Bar Association's Section of Business Law, this is the fourth edition of a definitive work: the result of extensive discussions at many IBA conferences of lawyers worldwide who provide commentary on a multitude of issues which may arise in the process of rendering legal opinions in international transactions. In most important international business transactions opinions of counsel are required as a condition precedent to the `closing' of the transaction. This book analyses and comments on the clauses of a typical legal opinion requested in an international transation. The book explains meaning given to such opinion clauses by U.S. counsel, discusses under the law and practice of 25 countries whether such opinion can be given and whether or not modifications are advisable and addresses the investigation necessary to enable a lawyer to render a correct opinion. The book also contains a chapter discussing the opinion a non-U.S. lawyer should request from a U.S. lawyer. The fourth edition adds a discussion of the special issues involved in opinions rendered by in-house counsel. The principal purposes of the book is to improve the communications between the lawyer- frequently a U.S. attorney- requesting the opinion and the lawyer rendering the opinion. Both must have a common understanding of the meaning of the terminology used in, and the scope of, the opinion. Another important purpose of the book is to analyse the interdependence of the opinions of counsel from several countries rendered in connection with one transaction. This frequently requires a conflict of laws analysis. Where the laws of several countries apply to a transaction, the various opinions must be put together like pieces of a puzzle before the recipient of the opinion can be certain that all relevant legal issues, under all relevant legal systems, have been fully addressed. The suggestions made in this book have been widely accepted in international opinion practice.

System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions. Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.

Executive education is a billion dollar industry that has the potential to transform individual and organizational performance, but in too many cases the decision whether or not to lavish it upon any given manager comes down to whether the fear that they will leave if you don’t spend money on them is greater than the fear that they will leave if you do. Given that the future of your business, or your career, depends on developing your managerial talent to its fullest potential isn’t it time we took a serious look at how do you design and deliver an executive education program that is fit for purpose? Santiago Iñiguez is Dean of the prestigious IE Business School in Madrid – one of the world’s leading providers of executive education. From the impact of MOOCs to the evolution of new multi-dimensional strategic alliances between companies and a diverse range of international education suppliers, institutions, and consultancies, Iñiguez looks at how the future of executive education is changing to meet the needs and wants of top managerial talent. Part of the solution, Iñiguez argues, is to balance the technical, analysis-based “engineering” training that forms the basis of many senior managers’ initial study, with a more rounded, integrated approach that includes learning derived from the humanities, such as art and history. Illustrated with fascinating examples drawn from interviews with some of the most influential figures in business education and corporate training around the World, Iñiguez’s book delivers a unique perspective and valuable insights on what it takes to deliver world-class corporate training.
