WASHINGTON, Aug. 24, 2004 LAWFUEL – Best for law news, legal news, law articles – See www.LawFuel.com Eversheds LLP, recently named the 2004 “Law Firm of the Year” by Legal Business, today announced that it has released its new book, Law of Europe. The 102-page guide offers a straightforward summary of the laws adopted by the European Union (EU) as well as the laws that are in force in individual EU nations and European countries — and will enable companies from around the world to operate more effectively across Europe.
“In today’s ever-shrinking global marketplace, the need to understand and navigate cross-border legal systems is imperative,” said Paul Smith, the driving force behind The Law of Europe and a partner at Eversheds, “and as one of the U.K.’s and Europe’s leading law firms, we immediately recognized the need for this comprehensive guide.”
With the EU now comprised of 25 nations and almost 90 percent of Europe’s population, the Law of Europe, for the first time, makes it possible for American, Asian, and businesses headquartered in other parts of Europe to continue to grow in their target markets, while at the same time having a comprehensive understanding of all of the laws that may affect their future.
The Law of Europe offers 20 individual chapters on key areas of business law, and specifically on the elements of EU law and domestic law of the main trading nations in Europe. From construction; to employment; to financial matters; to environment, health and safety issues, the book details the information companies need to know as they expand their operations across Europe.
The Law of Europe also provides a comprehensive checklist of EU regulations and directions; a glossary of terms and other helpful information; and flow charts of the various legal frameworks, such as the French and German Court Systems.
“The Law of Europe is a must-read for all senior corporate management around the world,” Thomas L. Sager, DuPont’s Vice President and Assistant General Counsel said. “As the global economy continues to regain its strength, companies from around the world will, increasingly, look to locate in Europe. With this book, Eversheds made it easier for them to do just that.”
