Some Reflections on the Transplantation of British Company Law in Post-Ottoman Palestine

The Article suggests that the transplantation of British company legislation into Palestine was neither straightforward nor all-encompassing. The Article discusses some specific areas of transplantation difficulty in the case of mandatory Palestine, viz. private companies, foreign companies, branch registers, and limits on land acquisition.
