Heleen Kersten schreef een boekbespreking over de 547 pagina’s tellende handelseditie van het proefschrift van Brink over due diligence. Brink heeft zich met name verdiept in de verbintenisrechtelijke aspecten van due diligence onderzoeken bij overnames, maar heeft zich hiertoe niet beperkt.

In zijn boek worden ook onderwerpen als due diligence bij kapitaalmarkttransacties, customer due diligence in het effectenrecht, exhibitieplicht en  verschoningsrecht ten aanzien van due diligence rapporten en beroepsaansprakelijkheid uitgebreid behandeld. Ook beschrijft Brink de manier waarop due diligence onderzoeken in de praktijk worden gedaan.

General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect

Short Reads - On 25 May 2018, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect.

As a regulation, the GDPR is directly applicable in all 28 EU member states and thus removes the need for national implementing legislation. However, the GDPR allows member states discretion in certain areas, as a result of which national legislation may still be implemented. In the Netherlands, the GDPR Implementation Act came into effect on 25 May 2018.
