The aim of this guide is to provide its readers with a pragmatic overview of the private equity law across a variety of jurisdictions.

Each chapter of this guide provides information about the current issues affecting private equity practice in a particular country and addresses topics such as mergers and acquisitions, management incentive schemes and debt financing, as well as insight and opinions and any upcoming legal changes planned for their respective country.
