Written in a jargon-free style, it helps identify the practical legal questions likely to arise and explains how to deal with them effectively.

Analysis of the latest case law is a particular feature of this new edition, as the courts address the uncertainties created by new technology. Recent judgments – from both the UK and other jurisdictions – are explained throughout the text.

  • Deals with key international issues such as jurisdictional questions, applicable law and EU internal market questions
