The 2006 edition of the Comparative Law Yearbook of International Business examines issues in three major topic categories: Litigation and Dispute Resolution, Investment Vehicles, and Secured Interests in Immovables.

Lawyers from Nigeria, the United States, and Ireland review the settlement of investment disputes, the impact of claims on non United States companies, and claim and dispute resolution under FIDIC.

Practitioners from Israel, Panama, Hong Kong, and Belgium treat investment vehicles such as trusts, foundations, and joint ventures and investment visas.

Contributors from Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, and Mexico review the use of security in real property in their respective jurisdictions.

Finally, lawyers from Brazil, Canada, the United States, Germany, South Africa, Ukraine, and Romania treat issues ranging from trade mark counterfeiting, registered designs and telecommunications to criminality in international business transactions, outsourcing, and business immigration.
