The bidder, with a large share holding of company's shares, is expanding his scope economically and geographically, which increases his competitiveness in the market. Takeover also enhances the competitiveness of the company targeted by it, and can improve its performance by leveraging the bidder economic capabilities. However, these advantages are offset by certain flaws, and do not compromise the risks that may be incurred by the shareholders of the company targeted by the takeover bids, as their agreement to sell their shares and thus enable the bidder to achieve his aim ...

Unfair, Abusive, And Unlawful: Protecting Debtors And Society From Unrestrained Bank Account Garnishment, Kevin Green

Fordham Law Review

In the span of a generation, consumer credit has reshaped the financial lives of millions of Americans. Today, some seventy million Americans have a debt in collections, and creditors file millions of actions annually to secure repayment of these loans. Despite the rapid expansion of consumer debt, the Consumer Credit Protection Act, the only federal law limiting garnishment, has not been updated since its enactment in 1968. Moreover, courts have narrowly construed its provisions to permit creditors to empty a debtor’s bank account to repay a delinquent debt.

To afford debtors the basic protections of the Consumer Credit Protection ...

Various investment agreements are signed to facilitate and promote investments. These instruments ...

Novation And Advance Consent, Kwan Ho Lau

Research Collection Yong Pung How School Of Law

It explores the legal footing for, and the risks in adopting a pristine version of, the proposition, and considers possible safeguards that may be incorporated within the process of scrutiny, if in any case there arises concern over the effectiveness of ...
