Securities Finance in Germany

    View Author June 2012

    Squire Sanders partner Andreas Fillmann and associate Jörg Uhlmann authored the Germany chapter of the 2012 edition of Getting the Deal Through – Securities Finance, a guide to securities finance laws and regulations for corporate counsel and cross-border legal and business professionals. Following the format adopted throughout the series, in which leading practitioners in each of the 24 jurisdictions featured answer key questions posed by the publishers, Andreas and Jörg provide responses to issues such as:

    • Identifying and describing Germany’s relevant statutes and regulations governing securities offerings
    • Germany’s registration and stock exchange filing process in connection with public offerings of securities
    • Special considerations that apply to offerings of exchangeable or convertible securities, warrants or depositary shares or rights offerings
    • Germany’s main rules prohibiting manipulative practices in securities offerings and secondary market transactions
    • The most common bases of liability for securities transactions
