This unique volume features an up-to-date expert English translation of the French Commercial Code and includes all amendments to the Code since June 2007. The Code includes all commercial matters, including corporate, anti-trust, and bankruptcy law. Areas with extensive coverage include general provisions on commerce, commercial companies and economic interest groupings, certain types of sales and exclusivity clauses, freedom of prices and competition, negotiable instruments and guarantees, the organization of commerce, and certain regulated professions.
This edition also includes footnotes explaining hard-to-translate terms, an extensive glossary of French legal terms and a practical topic index. This translation is especially useful for non-French speakers requiring a precise understanding of those matters governed by the Code as well as for those practitioners needing to explain the Code to English-speaking clients.
In addition to the full translation of the text of the Code, this volume includes useful footnotes to define French terms, and a glossary of French words translated into English.
