New article "Market Manipulation Through Short Selling Attacks and Misleading Financial Analyses"


These days Germany's listed companies have a high risk to become victims of short selling attacks by misleading financial analyses. Companies and supervision have so far had little to counter that. The article deals with deficits in the area of standardisation and enforcement of law and approaches solutions. It has been published in "The International Lawyer" (ISSN 0020-7810), a triannual publication of the American Bar Association's Section of International Law in cooperation with SMU Dedman School of Law, Dallas, Texas.
