Preface - Licensing 2019, Eleventh edition

Getting the Deal Through is delighted to publish the eleventh edition of Licensing, which is available in print, as an e-book and online at

Getting the Deal Through provides international expert analysis in key areas of law, practice and regulation for corporate counsel, crossborder legal practitioners, and company directors and officers.

Throughout this edition, and following the unique Getting the Deal Through format, the same key questions are answered by leading practitioners in each of the jurisdictions featured.

Every effort has been made to cover all matters of concern to readers. However, specific legal advice should always be sought from experienced local advisers. 

Getting the Deal Through gratefully acknowledges the efforts of all the contributors to this volume, who were chosen for their recognised expertise. We would like to thank the contributing editors, Fiona Nicolson and Claire Smith of Bristows LLP for their assistance with this volume. We also extend special thanks to Bruno Floriani of Lapointe Rosenstein Marchand Melançon LLP, who contributed the original format from which the current questionnaire has been derived, and who helped to shape the publication to date.
