Members have collaborated to produce "White Books" on Debt Collection, Real Estate, Company Incorporation and Labour matters. These guides are intended as a high level introduction to the rules applicable in the various member jurisdictions. They should not be relied upon as being a complete and entirely up-to-date source of information. Since the law is constantly changing, we recommend that you seek local legal advice before any action is taken.
