CURRENT ISSUES IN TRANSNATIONAL PRACTICE
Credit points: 15
Commercial actors from other jurisdictions (for example, the USA) often acquire and develop assets in Australia and New Zealand. Public listing in either of these two jurisdictions is one exit mechanism for these commercial actors. In all cases, however, proper structuring of the commercial transaction is important. This subject comprises: a review of the principal areas of required legal knowledge (tax, trusts and companies); the present position of the former British enclaves in the Southern Hemisphere for transaction planning purposes; the substantive law in Australia and New Zealand (including the mutual recognition of securities offerings regime), transaction planning, and, the architecture of a public listing. The take-home examination for this subject will comprise a set of legal memorandums advising on stages of a cross-border commercial transaction culminating in public listing.
