An Analysis of the Concept in a European and Nordic Context
The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) entered into force in 2016 within the European Union, which introduced a fully harmonized ban on market manipulation. Even though the regulation is quite detailed, the terms used to define market manipulation are relatively vague and open-ended. In What Is market manipulation? Dr. Andri Fannar Bergþórsson offers unique insight to and interpretation of the concept of market manipulation, which includes an analysis of case law from the Nordic countries. The aim of the book is to clarify the concept as described in MAR and to provide readers some guidelines to distinguish between lawful behaviour and market manipulation (the unlawful behaviour). Bergþórsson convincingly argues that misinformation is an essential element of all forms of market manipulation.

Caselaw and Bibliography on the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts. Second Edition
Since fall 2006: a new, revised edition of Unidroit Principles in Practice, featuring approximately 120-130 cases.

The UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contacts, published in 1994, were an entirely new approach to international contract law. Prepared by a group of eminent experts from around the world as a “restatement” of international commercial contract law, the Principles are not a binding instrument but are referred to in many legal matters. They are widely recognized now as a balanced set of rules designed for use throughout the world irrespective of the legal traditions and the economic and political conditions of the countries in which they are applied.

The UNIDRIOT Principles in Practice provides a comprehensive collection of international caselaw and bibiliographic materials relating to the Principles. In particular, it contains:

the text and official comments of the UNIDROIT Principles;
over 70 decisions by courts and arbitral tribunals worldwide referring to the UNIDROIT Principles;
a vast bibliography.
In addition to a general bibliography, there are bibliographical references pertinent to individual articles.

This book presents a simplified description of the IRS tax and reporting requirements with an emphasis on “real world” situations. Examples and diagrams help the reader through the maze.

First, the book introduces basic concepts and terms. This discussion follows the order of the regulations, and the reader is introduced to relevant terminology and acronyms.

Second, it paints a relatively comprehensive picture of a typical structure (one with just a few “bells and whistles”) and illustrates this with a simple diagram. Then, it proceeds to set forth a number of fact patterns by changing a few of the assumptions. Next, it describes how to comply with the rules in the context of the various fact patterns.

Third, a handful of recommendations on compliance are made. These are based on experience with the new rules.

Fourth, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are answered.

Features a Glossary at the end.

Copies of the important IRS regulations, notices, announcements, forms, instructions, and publications are reproduced in the WORKPAPERS.
