The Transfer Pricing Law ReviewEdition 4

Editors Steve Edge and Dominic Robertson

Slaughter and May

This publication aims to give readers a high-level overview of the principal transfer pricing rules in each country covered in the Review. Each chapter summarises the country’s substantive transfer pricing rules, explains how a transfer pricing dispute is handled, from initial scrutiny through to litigation or settlement, and discusses the interaction between transfer pricing and other parts of the tax code (such as withholding taxes, customs duties, and attempts to prevent double taxation).

The Lending and Secured Finance ReviewEdition 6

Editor Azadeh Nassiri

Slaughter and May

This sixth edition contains contributions from leading practitioners in 25 different countries. We would like to thank each of the contributors for taking the time to share their expertise on the developments in the corporate lending and secured finance markets in their respective jurisdictions, and on the challenges and opportunities facing market participants.

The Financial Technology Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Thomas A Frick

Niederer Kraft Frey

This is already the third edition of The Financial Technology Law Review. The authors of this publication are from the most widely respected law firms in their jurisdictions. We hope that you will find their experience invaluable and enlightening when dealing with the varied issues fintech raises in the legal and regulatory field. The emphasis of this book is on the law and practice of each of the jurisdictions, but discussion of emerging or unsettled issues has been provided where appropriate.

The Project Finance Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor David F Asmus

Sidley Austin LLP

This edition builds on the work from the inaugural edition, expanding both the scope and depth of the resource offered. As noted last year, many of the classic project finance texts are becoming increasingly dated as the years go by, while project finance itself continues to evolve with the markets it serves. The purpose of this volume is to provide a living guide to project finance that will be updated on a regular basis, while still tackling the core project finance concepts that every practitioner needs to understand.

The Banking Regulation ReviewEdition 11

Editor Jan Putnis

Slaughter and May

This edition covers 37 countries and territories in addition to the chapters on international initiatives and the European Union. Banking regulation will have a critically important role to play in determining how and when banks can and must help their customers get through this difficult time, and financial regulators must play their part to help facilitate this. Like much else in the financial world, banking regulation will never be the same again and this crisis is likely to lead to new regulatory initiatives to help banks to support stricken economies and businesses.

The Transport Finance Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Harry Theochari

Norton Rose Fulbright

The Transport Finance Law Review is intended to provide the industry with a guide to transport finance today, in each of the key jurisdictions globally in which aircraft, rolling stock and ships are financed. The aviation, rail and shipping industries each have their own unique characteristics and need lawyers with a deep understanding of how each of these complex industries operates. We have sought contributions from jurisdictions that play a leading role in the financing of transport assets. Each chapter provides an overview of the transport finance industry in these jurisdictions.

The Initial Public Offerings Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor David J Goldschmidt

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

Whether a company is looking to list in its home country or is exploring listing outside of its own jurisdiction, it is important that the company and its management are aware from the outset of the legal requirements as well as potential pitfalls that may impact the offering. Moreover, once a company is public, there are ongoing jurisdiction-specific disclosure and other requirements with which it must comply. This fourth edition introduces the intricacies of taking a company public in these jurisdictions and serves as a guide for issuers and their directors and management.

The Consumer Finance Law ReviewEdition 4

Editors Rick Fischer, Obrea Poindexter and Jeremy Mandell

Morrison & Foerster LLP

Consumer choice for financial products and services is proliferating across global markets. The ability to reach consumers at any time on their mobile phones, tablets or other devices has helped attract substantial capital investment in consumer financial services. This survey of consumer finance law describes the legal and regulatory approaches taken in the jurisdictions covered. Each chapter addresses the key characteristics of, and current climate within, a particular jurisdiction. Although payments, lending and deposits are the focus of this survey, other financial products and services are discussed where relevant.

The Structured Products Law ReviewEdition 1

Editors Christopher S Schell, Yan Zhang and Derek Walters

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

Despite the significant growth of the global structured product market in recent years, very few books on legal and regulatory issues related to structured products are available. We hope that this publication will contribute to the knowledge base of legal practitioners and other structured product market participants. For our purposes, the term structured product refers to a pre-packaged investment that combines derivatives with other financial instruments to provide a return based on the performance of one or more underlying assets, including equity securities, indices, commodities, interest rates, currencies and, in some jurisdictions, credit risks.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 9

Editor Jeffrey Golden

3 Hare Court Chambers

This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.

The Banking Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Deborah Finkler

Slaughter and May

This year’s edition of The Banking Litigation Law Review demonstrates that the increase in litigation involving banks shows little sign of slowing. Although disputes arising from the 2008 financial crises are reaching their end, what might be termed ‘normal’ banking litigation has resumed, and is in no short supply.

The Acquisition and Leveraged Finance ReviewEdition 6

Editor Marc P Hanrahan

Milbank LLP

Leveraged finance, particularly with respect to acquisition financing, has been an expanding asset class for many years. This volume is intended to introduce the newcomer to the legal basics involved in leveraged finance, particularly acquisition finance, so that he or she is grounded in the underpinnings of the practice area. It is also intended to be a helpful update for the more seasoned practitioner with respect to what is new and what is being talked about in leveraged finance deals.

The Securitisation Law Review Edition 1

Editor Michael Urschel

King & Spalding LLP

The purpose of this inaugural edition of The Securitisation Law Review is to provide securitisation attorneys, borrowers, lenders and other market participants with insight into a sample of structural frameworks and regulatory issues surrounding the industry in a broad array of jurisdictions. This edition is not intended to be a comprehensive overview of securitisation regulation and structures in every jurisdiction, but rather to provide a frame of reference for, and a comparison of, the various structural features available and the regulatory considerations necessary in securitising assets globally.

The Insolvency ReviewEdition 7

Editor Donald S Bernstein

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

This seventh edition of The Insolvency Review once again offers an in-depth review of market conditions and insolvency case developments in key countries. A debt of gratitude is owed to the outstanding professionals around the world who have dedicated their time and talents to this book. As always, their contributions reflect diverse viewpoints and approaches, which in turn reflect the diversity of their respective national commercial cultures and laws.

The Islamic Finance and Markets ReviewEdition 4

Editors John Dewar and Munib Hussain

Milbank LLP

We are honoured to present the fourth edition of The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review. The chapters that follow describe the manner in which Islamic, or shariah-compliant, finance is practised in various jurisdictions throughout the world. Although each country will have variations, one of the most striking features of Islamic finance as a legal discipline is that it includes core concepts and structures that cross jurisdictional boundaries.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 8

Editor John Riches

RMW Law LLP

There is no doubt that the increased cost and complexity of regulation is driving trends towards simpler structures with fewer layers and involving fewer jurisdictions. The theme of ever-greater levels of transparency and increased complexity of overlapping regulation continues. The dichotomy between Western Europe and the United States, in terms of their different approach to these issues, also remains very apparent to observers.

The Virtual Currency Regulation ReviewEdition 2

Editors Michael S Sackheim and Nathan A Howell

Sidley Austin LLP

The second edition of the Review provides a practical analysis of recent legal and regulatory changes and developments, and of their effects, and looks forward to expected trends in the area of virtual currencies on a country-by-country basis. It is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to the regulation of virtual currencies globally or in any of the included jurisdictions. Instead, for each jurisdiction, the authors have endeavoured to provide a sufficient overview for the reader to understand the current legal and regulatory environment.

The Asset Management ReviewEdition 8

Editor Paul Dickson

Slaughter and May

This continues to be a period of change and uncertainty for the asset management industry, as funds and managers act to comply with regulatory developments and investor requirements, and adapt to the changing geopolitical landscape. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition of The Asset Management Review will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 12

Editor Christopher Mallon

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

We are very pleased to present this twelfth edition of The Restructuring Review. As with the previous editions, our intention is to help general counsel, private practice lawyers and the public sector understand the conditions prevailing in the global restructuring market in 2019, and to highlight some of the more significant legal and commercial developments and trends that have been evident in recent years, and that are expected to be significant in the future.

The Private Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 13

Editors Ilene Knable Gotts and Kevin S Schwartz

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Private antitrust litigation is largely a work in progress in many parts of the world. Change occurs slowly in some jurisdictions, but clearly the direction is favourable to the recognition that private antitrust enforcement has a role to play. Many of the issues raised in this book remain unresolved by the courts in many countries. The one constant across almost all jurisdictions is the upward trend in cartel enforcement activity, which is likely to be a continuous source for private litigation in the future.

The Environment and Climate Change Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Theodore L Garrett

Environmental law is global in its reach. Multinational companies make business plans based on the laws and regulations of the countries in which they are headquartered and have manufacturing facilities as well as the countries in which they distribute and sell their products.

The broad message of the book is that this risk is growing steadily. This book serves as a useful resource to the local practitioner, as well as those faced with navigating the global regulatory thicket in international cartel investigations.

Editor John P Janka

Latham & Watkins LLP

As it has since inception, this tenth edition of The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review provides a survey of evolving legal constructs in 21 jurisdictions around the world.

The Merger Control ReviewEdition 10

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

As this book evidences, today almost all competition authorities have a notification process in place – with most requiring pre-merger notification for transactions that meet certain prescribed minimum thresholds. Additional jurisdictions, most recently in South America, have added pre-merger notification regimes. In our endeavour to keep our readers well informed, we have expanded the jurisdictions covered by this book to include the newer regimes as well. Also, the book now includes chapters devoted to such ‘hot’ M&A sectors as pharmaceuticals, and high technology and media, in key jurisdictions to provide a more in-depth discussion of recent developments.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 9

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Under what circumstances can the corporate entity itself be charged with a crime? What are the possible penalties? Under what circumstances should a corporation voluntarily self-report potential misconduct on the part of its employees? Is it a realistic option for a corporation to defend itself at trial against a government agency? And how does a corporation manage the delicate interactions with employees whose conduct is at issue? The International Investigations Review answers these questions and many more and will serve as an indispensable guide when your clients face criminal or regulatory scrutiny in a country other than your own.

Change occurs slowly in some jurisdictions, but clearly the direction is favourable to the recognition that private antitrust enforcement has a role to play. Many of the issues raised in this book remain unresolved by the courts in many countries. The one constant across almost all jurisdictions is the upward trend in cartel enforcement activity, which is likely to be a continuous source for private litigation in the future.

The Securities Litigation ReviewEdition 6

Editor William Savitt

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

The Securities Litigation Review is a guided introduction to the international varieties of enforcing rights related to the issuance and exchange of publicly traded securities. This review focuses on litigation – how rights are created and vindicated against the backdrop of courtroom proceedings. Accordingly, this volume amounts to a cross-cultural review of the disputing process. While the subject matter is limited to securities litigation, which may well be the world’s most economically significant form of litigation, any survey of litigation is in great part a survey of procedure as much as substance.

The Product Regulation and Liability ReviewEdition 7

This edition covers 15 countries and territories and includes a high-level overview of each jurisdiction’s product liability framework, recent changes and developments, and a look forward at expected trends.

The Corporate Governance ReviewEdition 10

Editor Willem J L Calkoen

NautaDutilh

In this 10th edition, we can see that corporate governance is becoming a more vital and all-encompassing topic with each year that passes. We all realise that the modern corporation is one of the most ingenious concepts ever devised. Our lives are dominated by corporations. We eat and breathe through them, we travel with them, we are entertained by them, most of us work for them. Most corporations aim to add value to society, and they very often do. Some, however, are exploiting, polluting, poisoning and impoverishing us…

The Franchise Law ReviewEdition 7

Editor Mark Abell

Bird & Bird

This book provides an introduction to the basic elements of international franchising and an overview of the way that it is regulated in 28 jurisdictions. While this book certainly does not present readers with the complete answer to all the questions they may have about franchising in all the countries covered – that would require far more pages than it is possible to include in this one volume – it does seek to provide the reader with a high-level understanding of the challenges involved.

The Energy Mergers & Acquisitions Review Edition 1

Editors Sean T Wheeler, Kristin Mendoza, Roald Nashi and Robert S Fleishman

The Executive Remuneration ReviewEdition 8

Editors

Editor Arthur Kohn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

Editor Janet Cooper

Tapestry Compliance

Executive remuneration encompasses a diverse range of practices and is consequently influenced by many different areas of the law, including tax, employment, securities and other aspects of corporate law. We hope this book will be particularly useful in circumstances where a corporation is considering establishing a presence in a new jurisdiction, and is seeking to understand the various rules and regulations that may govern executive employment (or the corporate governance rules relating thereto) with regard to newly hired (or transferring) executives in that jurisdiction.

The Real Estate M&A and Private Equity ReviewEdition 4

Editors Adam O Emmerich and Robin Panovka

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

To create this publication, we have invited leading practitioners from around the globe to offer practical insights into what is going on around the conference tables and in the markets in their jurisdiction, with an eye to cross-border trends and transactions. We hope this compilation of insight from our remarkable multinational authors produces clarity and transparency into this exciting world of ‘liquid real estate’ and helps to further fuel the growth of the sector.

The Asset Management ReviewEdition 8

Editor Paul Dickson

Slaughter and May

This continues to be a period of change and uncertainty for the asset management industry, as funds and managers act to comply with regulatory developments and investor requirements, and adapt to the changing geopolitical landscape. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition of The Asset Management Review will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

The Mergers & Acquisitions ReviewEdition 13

Editor Mark Zerdin

Slaughter and May

The Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewEdition 4

Editor Francis J Aquila

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP [Dupe]

There is no question that shareholder activism is a prominent, and likely permanent, feature of the corporate landscape. As both shareholder activists and the companies they target have become more geographically diverse, it is increasingly important for legal and corporate practitioners to understand the legal framework and emerging trends of shareholder activism in the various international jurisdictions facing activism. The Shareholder Rights and Activism Review is designed as a primer on these aspects of shareholder activism in such jurisdictions.

The Merger Control ReviewEdition 10

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

As this book evidences, today almost all competition authorities have a notification process in place – with most requiring pre-merger notification for transactions that meet certain prescribed minimum thresholds. Additional jurisdictions, most recently in South America, have added pre-merger notification regimes. In our endeavour to keep our readers well informed, we have expanded the jurisdictions covered by this book to include the newer regimes as well. Also, the book now includes chapters devoted to such ‘hot’ M&A sectors as pharmaceuticals, and high technology and media, in key jurisdictions to provide a more in-depth discussion of recent developments.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 12

Editor Christopher Mallon

Editor James H Carter

WilmerHale LLP

International arbitration is a fast-moving express train. The international arbitration community has created other publications that follow these developments regularly. Scholarly arbitration literature follows behind, at a more leisurely pace.

This volume, to which leading arbitration practitioners around the world have made valuable contributions, seeks to fill that space.

The Class Actions Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Camilla Sanger

Slaughter and May

Class actions and major group litigation can be seismic events, not only for the parties involved, but also for whole industries and parts of society. That potential impact means they are one of the few types of claim that have become truly global in both importance and scope, as reflected in this fourth edition. As with previous editions of this review, this updated publication aims to provide practitioners and clients with a single overview handbook to which they can turn for the key procedures, developments and factors in play in a number of the world’s most important jurisdictions.

Editor Nicholas Robertson

A time-travelling employment lawyer from 10 years ago (if such an individual existed) would be astonished at the pace of change. In these circumstances, a book such as The Labour and Employment Disputes Review offers an opportunity not only to look at the bigger themes, but also to measure some of the changes taking place, year on year, as the world of work continues to evolve.

The Tax Disputes and Litigation ReviewEdition 8

Editor Simon Whitehead

Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP

The objective of this book is to provide tax professionals involved in disputes with revenue authorities in multiple jurisdictions with an outline of the principal issues arising in those jurisdictions.

Each chapter provides an overview of the procedural rules that govern tax appeals and highlights the pitfalls of which taxpayers need to be most aware.

The Dispute Resolution ReviewEdition 12

Editor Damian Taylor

Slaughter and May

The Dispute Resolution Review provides an indispensable overview of the civil court systems of 32 jurisdictions. It offers a guide to those who are faced with disputes that frequently cross international boundaries.

The Banking Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Deborah Finkler

Slaughter and May

This year’s edition of The Banking Litigation Law Review demonstrates that the increase in litigation involving banks shows little sign of slowing. Although disputes arising from the 2008 financial crises are reaching their end, what might be termed ‘normal’ banking litigation has resumed, and is in no short supply.

The Patent Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

The Patent Litigation Law Review does not only summarise patent litigation procedures. The respective contributors to it, as leading practitioners in each of their jurisdictions, also focus on recent developments in substantive patent law as demonstrated by the most important recent court decisions in their respective jurisdictions, meaning that this Review also provides insight into the current controversies that affect patent law generally.

The Global Damages ReviewEdition 2

Editor Errol Soriano

Duff & Phelps

In the inaugural edition of this publication, we addressed various rules that set boundaries on what is permissible damages evidence. The focus in that publication was to survey the codified rules and common law principles underpinning the analysis and presentation of damages.

Editor David J Goldschmidt

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

Whether a company is looking to list in its home country or is exploring listing outside of its own jurisdiction, it is important that the company and its management are aware from the outset of the legal requirements as well as potential pitfalls that may impact the offering.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 9

Editor Jeffrey Golden

3 Hare Court Chambers

This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.

As it has since inception, this tenth edition of The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review provides a survey of evolving legal constructs in 21 jurisdictions around the world.

We have sought contributions from jurisdictions that play a leading role in the financing of transport assets. Each chapter provides an overview of the transport finance industry in these jurisdictions.

The e-Discovery and Information Governance Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Jennifer Mott Williams

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP

Virtually unheard of 20 years ago, increasing data volumes and ever-changing technologies have resulted in e-discovery and information governance exploding onto the legal scene. Corporations face a wide array of overlapping and competing e-discovery and information governance laws and regulations impacting the use, retention and disposition of electronically stored information (ESI). This second edition of The e-Discovery and Information Governance Law Review provides a general overview of e-discovery and information governance.

The Class Actions Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Camilla Sanger

Slaughter and May

Class actions and major group litigation can be seismic events, not only for the parties involved, but also for whole industries and parts of society. That potential impact means they are one of the few types of claim that have become truly global in both importance and scope, as reflected in this fourth edition. As with previous editions of this review, this updated publication aims to provide practitioners and clients with a single overview handbook to which they can turn for the key procedures, developments and factors in play in a number of the world’s most important jurisdictions.

The Cartels and Leniency ReviewEdition 8

Editors

Editor John Buretta

Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP

Editor John Terzaken

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP

This book brings together leading competition law experts from 26 jurisdictions to address an issue of growing importance to large corporations, their managers and their lawyers: the potential liability, both civil and criminal, that may arise from unlawful agreements with competitors as to price, markets or output. The broad message of the book is that this risk is growing steadily. This book serves as a useful resource to the local practitioner, as well as those faced with navigating the global regulatory thicket in international cartel investigations.

The Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption ReviewEdition 8

Editor Mark F Mendelsohn

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

This eighth edition presents the views and observations of leading anti-corruption practitioners in jurisdictions spanning the globe.

The Asset Tracing and Recovery ReviewEdition 7

Editor Robert Hunter

Robert Hunter Consultants

‘Fraud’ is a word that people find easier to use than to define. Partly for this reason, it is difficult for lawyers to summarise the way in which their particular jurisdictions deal with it. Some of the sources of their laws will be domestic and will have evolved over time. Others will be recent international conventions, where regard must be had to the decisions of other jurisdictions.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 9

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Under what circumstances can the corporate entity itself be charged with a crime? What are the possible penalties? Under what circumstances should a corporation voluntarily self-report potential misconduct on the part of its employees? Is it a realistic option for a corporation to defend itself at trial against a government agency? And how does a corporation manage the delicate interactions with employees whose conduct is at issue? The International Investigations Review answers these questions and many more and will serve as an indispensable guide when your clients face criminal or regulatory scrutiny in a country other than your own.

Editors Rick Fischer, Obrea Poindexter and Jeremy Mandell

Morrison & Foerster LLP

Consumer choice for financial products and services is proliferating across global markets. The ability to reach consumers at any time on their mobile phones, tablets or other devices has helped attract substantial capital investment in consumer financial services. This survey of consumer finance law describes the legal and regulatory approaches taken in the jurisdictions covered. Each chapter addresses the key characteristics of, and current climate within, a particular jurisdiction. Although payments, lending and deposits are the focus of this survey, other financial products and services are discussed where relevant.

The Franchise Law ReviewEdition 7

Editor Mark Abell

Bird & Bird

This book provides an introduction to the basic elements of international franchising and an overview of the way that it is regulated in 28 jurisdictions. While this book certainly does not present readers with the complete answer to all the questions they may have about franchising in all the countries covered – that would require far more pages than it is possible to include in this one volume – it does seek to provide the reader with a high-level understanding of the challenges involved.

The Space Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Joanne Wheeler MBE

Alden Legal Limited

We are delighted to introduce the first edition of The Space Law Review. The importance of book will grow each year as the value of space activities increases, further applications of satellite technology are brought into use and the commercial revenues from the industry are recognised.

Editors R Bruce Rich and Benjamin E Marks

Weil, Gotshal & Manges

We are very pleased to present this important survey work on the ever-evolving state of the law globally as affects the day-to-day operations of the media and entertainment industries. This volume should be understood to serve, not as an encyclopaedic resource covering the broad and often complex legal landscape affecting the media and entertainment industries, but, rather, as a current snapshot of developments and country trends likely to be of greatest interest to the practitioner.

The Technology, Media and Telecommunications ReviewEdition 10

Editor John P Janka

Latham & Watkins LLP

As it has since inception, this tenth edition of The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review provides a survey of evolving legal constructs in 21 jurisdictions around the world. It remains a business-focused framework rather than a legal treatise, and strives to provide a general overview for those interested in evolving law and policy in the rapidly changing TMT sector.

The Patent Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

The Patent Litigation Law Review does not only summarise patent litigation procedures. The respective contributors to it, as leading practitioners in each of their jurisdictions, also focus on recent developments in substantive patent law as demonstrated by the most important recent court decisions in their respective jurisdictions, meaning that this Review also provides insight into the current controversies that affect patent law generally.

The Trademarks Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Jonathan Clegg

Cleveland Scott York

The key objectives for each of the many jurisdictions included in the publication are to provide, first, an annual snapshot of trademark law that includes a summary of the key legal provisions, second, a review of recent developments and trends from the courts, and third, an informed view of areas of expected legal activity and legislative change going forward. To this end, our panel of leading trademark practitioners, including those from several countries new to the publication, have each been invited to provide a chapter of commentary on their own jurisdiction.

The Privacy, Data Protection and Cybersecurity Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Alan Charles Raul

Sidley Austin LLP

Following the first year of life under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and with only months to go until the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect, 2019 feels more like Waiting for Godot than Hallelujah Chorus. Unless policy makers around the world make a real effort to identify the actual privacy risks people face, we will see more of the same in 2020 – an incessant barrage of tedious cookie notices, overwrought haranguing against tailored advertising and more blaming of victims of cybercrime for governments’ failure to protect their economies from electronic attack by sophisticated state actors and criminals.

The Healthcare Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Sarah Ellson

Fieldfisher LLP

Welcome to the third edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review now provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Russia and South Africa in this edition. Our expert authors have also reviewed and updated their chapters to reflect the ever evolving situation in the jurisdictions covered in earlier editions. While a hugely diverse area of practice, it is possible to discern common challenges and similar approaches in very different countries.

The Virtual Currency Regulation ReviewEdition 2

Editors Michael S Sackheim and Nathan A Howell

Sidley Austin LLP

The second edition of the Review provides a practical analysis of recent legal and regulatory changes and developments, and of their effects, and looks forward to expected trends in the area of virtual currencies on a country-by-country basis. It is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to the regulation of virtual currencies globally or in any of the included jurisdictions. Instead, for each jurisdiction, the authors have endeavoured to provide a sufficient overview for the reader to understand the current legal and regulatory environment.

The year 2020 will of course go down in history as one of the most unusual and difficult years the world has faced in modern times. As we prepared this 10th edition of The Corporate Immigration Review, most of the world’s immigration systems had ceased functioning with any semblance of normality. All over the world, government policies and national strategies have been upended by the threat of covid-19. As we celebrate the 10th edition, we hope the 11th will be produced in the context of a greatly revitalised world.

A time-travelling employment lawyer from 10 years ago (if such an individual existed) would be astonished at the pace of change.

We hope this book will be particularly useful in circumstances where a corporation is considering establishing a presence in a new jurisdiction, and is seeking to understand the various rules and regulations that may govern executive employment (or the corporate governance rules relating thereto) with regard to newly hired (or transferring) executives in that jurisdiction.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 8

Editor John Riches

There is no doubt that the increased cost and complexity of regulation is driving trends towards simpler structures with fewer layers and involving fewer jurisdictions. The theme of ever-greater levels of transparency and increased complexity of overlapping regulation continues. The dichotomy between Western Europe and the United States, in terms of their different approach to these issues, also remains very apparent to observers.

Editor Arthur Kohn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

Editor Janet Cooper

Tapestry Compliance

Executive remuneration encompasses a diverse range of practices and is consequently influenced by many different areas of the law, including tax, employment, securities and other aspects of corporate law. We hope this book will be particularly useful in circumstances where a corporation is considering establishing a presence in a new jurisdiction, and is seeking to understand the various rules and regulations that may govern executive employment (or the corporate governance rules relating thereto) with regard to newly hired (or transferring) executives in that jurisdiction.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 8

Editor John Riches

RMW Law LLP

There is no doubt that the increased cost and complexity of regulation is driving trends towards simpler structures with fewer layers and involving fewer jurisdictions. The theme of ever-greater levels of transparency and increased complexity of overlapping regulation continues. The dichotomy between Western Europe and the United States, in terms of their different approach to these issues, also remains very apparent to observers.

The Corporate Tax Planning Law ReviewEdition 2

Editors Jodi J Schwartz and Swift S O Edgar

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

We are pleased to present the second edition of The Corporate Tax Planning Review. This volume contains 22 chapters, each devoted to a different country and each providing expert analysis by leading practitioners of the most important aspects of tax planning for multinational corporate groups in that country, with a particular focus on recent developments.

The Inward Investment and International Taxation ReviewEdition 10

Editor Tim Sanders

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

It is hoped that this volume will prove to be a useful guide to the tax rules in the jurisdictions where clients conduct their businesses. Each chapter aims to provide topical and current insights from leading experts on the tax issues and opportunities in their respective jurisdictions. While specific tax advice is always essential, it is also necessary to have a broad understanding of the nature of the potential issues and advantages that lie ahead; this book provides a guide to these.

The Tax Disputes and Litigation ReviewEdition 8

Editor Simon Whitehead

Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP

The objective of this book is to provide tax professionals involved in disputes with revenue authorities in multiple jurisdictions with an outline of the principal issues arising in those jurisdictions. In this, the eighth edition, we have continued to add to the key jurisdictions where disputes are likely to occur for multinational businesses. Each chapter provides an overview of the procedural rules that govern tax appeals and highlights the pitfalls of which taxpayers need to be most aware.

Slaughter and May

This publication aims to give readers a high-level overview of the principal transfer pricing rules in each country covered in the Review.

The Investment Treaty Arbitration ReviewEdition 5

Editor Barton Legum

Dentons

The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review fulfils an essential function. Updated every year, it provides a current perspective on a quickly evolving topic. Organised by topic rather than by jurisdiction, it allows readers to access rapidly not only the most recent developments on a given subject, but also the debate that led to and the context behind those developments. This fifth edition adds new topics to the Review, increasing its scope and utility to practitioners.

The Initial Public Offerings Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor David J Goldschmidt

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

Whether a company is looking to list in its home country or is exploring listing outside of its own jurisdiction, it is important that the company and its management are aware from the outset of the legal requirements as well as potential pitfalls that may impact the offering. Moreover, once a company is public, there are ongoing jurisdiction-specific disclosure and other requirements with which it must comply. This fourth edition introduces the intricacies of taking a company public in these jurisdictions and serves as a guide for issuers and their directors and management.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 9

Editor Jeffrey Golden

3 Hare Court Chambers

This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.

The Foreign Investment Regulation ReviewEdition 7

Editors Calvin S Goldman QC and Michael Koch

Goodmans LLP

Foreign investment continues to garner a great deal of attention. This Review provides a comprehensive guide to laws, regulations, policies and practices governing foreign investment in key international jurisdictions. It includes contributions from leading experts around the world from some of the most widely recognised law firms in their respective jurisdictions.

The International Trade Law ReviewEdition 5

Editors Folkert Graafsma and Joris Cornelis

VVGB Advocaten

In the years since the first edition the dynamics of trade have fundamentally changed in a disturbing manner. As also noted last year, the spectre of Brexit is looming ever closer. Second, the dynamics of the interwoven jumbo economy of ‘Chimerica’ continue to be rewritten and deteriorate as we speak, with trade policies being abused as instruments to meet political goals. Third, and arguably even more fundamental, the asphyxiation of the Appellate Body slowly continues, despite multiple attempts by over 20 members to rewrite the Appellate Review process and find creative solutions.

Editors Maurits Dolmans and Henry Mostyn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

This eighth edition of The Dominance and Monopolies Review seeks to provide an accessible and easily-understandable summary of global abuse of dominance rules. As with previous years, each chapter – authored by specialist local experts – summarises the abuse of dominance rules in a jurisdiction; provides a review of the regime’s enforcement activity in the past year; and sets out a prediction for future developments.

The International Arbitration ReviewEdition 11

Editor James H Carter

WilmerHale LLP

International arbitration is a fast-moving express train. The international arbitration community has created other publications that follow these developments regularly. Scholarly arbitration literature follows behind, at a more leisurely pace. There is a niche to be filled by an analytical review of what has occurred in each of the important arbitration jurisdictions during the past year. This volume, to which leading arbitration practitioners around the world have made valuable contributions, seeks to fill that space.

The Projects and Construction ReviewEdition 10

Editor Júlio César Bueno

Pinheiro Neto Advogados

Project financing and construction law are highly specialised areas of legal practice. Although there is an increased perception that project financing and construction law are global issues, the local knowledge offered by leading experts in 19 countries has shown us that to understand the world, we must first make sense of what happens locally; to further advance our understanding of the law we must resist the modern view that all that matters is global and what is regional is of no importance.

The Intellectual Property and Antitrust ReviewEdition 5

Editor Thomas Vinje

Clifford Chance LLP

Intellectual property practitioners need to look beyond intellectual property laws themselves to understand the antitrust limits on the free exercise of rights. The task of this book is, with respect to key jurisdictions globally, to provide an annual concrete and practical overview of developments on the relationship between antitrust and intellectual property. This fifth edition provides an update on recent developments, as well as an overview of the overall existing lay of the land regarding the relationship between the two bodies of law.

The Energy Regulation and Markets ReviewEdition 9

Editor David L Schwartz

Latham & Watkins LLP

In our ninth year of writing and publishing this book the most pressing global concerns have revolved around the covid-19 pandemic. Accordingly, many of our contributing authors have emphasised concerns associated with the effects of the crisis on energy demand and consumption, and delays in the development of infrastructure. Beyond this crisis, we have seen many other significant geopolitical changes that have added uncertainties to global energy policies.

The Professional Negligence Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Nicholas Bird

Reynolds Porter Chamberlain LLP

This third edition is the product of the skill and knowledge of leading practitioners in 15 jurisdictions, setting out the key elements of professional conduct and obligations. Each chapter deals with the fundamental principles of professional negligence law, including obligations, fora, dispute resolution mechanisms, remedies and time bars. The chapter authors then review factors specific to the main professions and conclude with an outline of the developments of the past year and issues to look out for in the year ahead.

The Corporate Immigration ReviewEdition 10

Editor Chris Magrath

Magrath Sheldrick LLP

The year 2020 will of course go down in history as one of the most unusual and difficult years the world has faced in modern times. As we prepared this 10th edition of The Corporate Immigration Review, most of the world’s immigration systems had ceased functioning with any semblance of normality. All over the world, government policies and national strategies have been upended by the threat of covid-19. As we celebrate the 10th edition, we hope the 11th will be produced in the context of a greatly revitalised world.

The Shipping Law ReviewEdition 7

Editors George Eddings, Andrew Chamberlain and Holly Colaço

HFW

The seventh edition of this book aims to continue to provide those involved in handling shipping disputes with an overview of the key issues relevant to multiple jurisdictions. We have again invited contributions on the law of leading maritime nations, including both major flag states and the countries in which most shipping companies are located. We also include chapters on the law of the major shipbuilding centres and a range of other jurisdictions.

The e-Discovery and Information Governance Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Jennifer Mott Williams

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP

Virtually unheard of 20 years ago, increasing data volumes and ever-changing technologies have resulted in e-discovery and information governance exploding onto the legal scene. Corporations face a wide array of overlapping and competing e-discovery and information governance laws and regulations impacting the use, retention and disposition of electronically stored information (ESI). This second edition of The e-Discovery and Information Governance Law Review provides a general overview of e-discovery and information governance.

The Securities Litigation ReviewEdition 6

Editor William Savitt

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

The Securities Litigation Review is a guided introduction to the international varieties of enforcing rights related to the issuance and exchange of publicly traded securities. This review focuses on litigation – how rights are created and vindicated against the backdrop of courtroom proceedings. Accordingly, this volume amounts to a cross-cultural review of the disputing process. While the subject matter is limited to securities litigation, which may well be the world’s most economically significant form of litigation, any survey of litigation is in great part a survey of procedure as much as substance.

The Corporate Tax Planning Law ReviewEdition 2

Editors Jodi J Schwartz and Swift S O Edgar

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

We are pleased to present the second edition of The Corporate Tax Planning Review. This volume contains 22 chapters, each devoted to a different country and each providing expert analysis by leading practitioners of the most important aspects of tax planning for multinational corporate groups in that country, with a particular focus on recent developments.

The Government Procurement ReviewEdition 8

Editors Jonathan Davey and Amy Gatenby

Addleshaw Goddard LLP

It is our pleasure to introduce the eighth edition of The Government Procurement Review. Our geographical coverage this year remains impressive, covering 15 jurisdictions, including the European Union, and the continued political and economic significance of government procurement remains clear.

The Intellectual Property ReviewEdition 9

Editor Dominick A Conde

Venable

To aid practitioners in this changing environment of global intellectual property, we now present the ninth edition of The Intellectual Property Review. In this edition, we present 16 chapters that provide an overview of the forms of intellectual property coverage available in each particular jurisdiction, along with an update of its most recent developments. Each chapter is written and assembled by leading practitioners in that jurisdiction.

Editor Carl Rohsler

Memery Crystal

The Gambling Law Review is designed for practitioners across the world who want to find a way quickly to digest and understand the framework of gambling legislation in key jurisdictions. There is something instructive in every chapter, with a review of new legislation and case law, and a section dedicated to the key events of the past 12 months and the things to look out for in the next.

The Financial Technology Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Thomas A Frick

Niederer Kraft Frey

This is already the third edition of The Financial Technology Law Review. The authors of this publication are from the most widely respected law firms in their jurisdictions. We hope that you will find their experience invaluable and enlightening when dealing with the varied issues fintech raises in the legal and regulatory field. The emphasis of this book is on the law and practice of each of the jurisdictions, but discussion of emerging or unsettled issues has been provided where appropriate.

The Project Finance Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor David F Asmus

Sidley Austin LLP

This edition builds on the work from the inaugural edition, expanding both the scope and depth of the resource offered. As noted last year, many of the classic project finance texts are becoming increasingly dated as the years go by, while project finance itself continues to evolve with the markets it serves. The purpose of this volume is to provide a living guide to project finance that will be updated on a regular basis, while still tackling the core project finance concepts that every practitioner needs to understand.

The Banking Regulation ReviewEdition 11

Editor Jan Putnis

Slaughter and May

This edition covers 37 countries and territories in addition to the chapters on international initiatives and the European Union. Banking regulation will have a critically important role to play in determining how and when banks can and must help their customers get through this difficult time, and financial regulators must play their part to help facilitate this. Like much else in the financial world, banking regulation will never be the same again and this crisis is likely to lead to new regulatory initiatives to help banks to support stricken economies and businesses.

The Public Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 12

Editor Aidan Synnott

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

In the reports from around the world collected in this volume, we continue to see international overlap among the issues and industries attracting government enforcement attention. This year, we read with particular interest the discussions of activity in many jurisdictions regarding digital platform competition issues. We also continue to see the evolution and refinement of general approaches to competition law enforcement in several jurisdictions.

The Insurance and Reinsurance Law ReviewEdition 8

Editor Peter Rogan

Ince

Insurance and reinsurance play an important role in the world economy. Given the expanding reach of the industry, there is a need for a source of reference that analyses recent developments in the key jurisdictions on a comparative basis. This volume, to which leading insurance and reinsurance practitioners around the world have made valuable contributions, seeks to fulfil that need.

The Transport Finance Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Harry Theochari

Norton Rose Fulbright

The Transport Finance Law Review is intended to provide the industry with a guide to transport finance today, in each of the key jurisdictions globally in which aircraft, rolling stock and ships are financed. The aviation, rail and shipping industries each have their own unique characteristics and need lawyers with a deep understanding of how each of these complex industries operates. We have sought contributions from jurisdictions that play a leading role in the financing of transport assets. Each chapter provides an overview of the transport finance industry in these jurisdictions.

The Product Regulation and Liability ReviewEdition 7

Editors Chilton Davis Varner and Madison Kitchens

King & Spalding LLP

This edition covers 15 countries and territories and includes a high-level overview of each jurisdiction’s product liability framework, recent changes and developments, and a look forward at expected trends. Each chapter contains a brief introduction to the country’s product liability framework, followed by four main sections: regulatory oversight, causes of action, litigation, and the year in review.

The Class Actions Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Camilla Sanger

Slaughter and May

Class actions and major group litigation can be seismic events, not only for the parties involved, but also for whole industries and parts of society. That potential impact means they are one of the few types of claim that have become truly global in both importance and scope, as reflected in this fourth edition. As with previous editions of this review, this updated publication aims to provide practitioners and clients with a single overview handbook to which they can turn for the key procedures, developments and factors in play in a number of the world’s most important jurisdictions.

The Corporate Governance ReviewEdition 10

Editor Willem J L Calkoen

NautaDutilh

In this 10th edition, we can see that corporate governance is becoming a more vital and all-encompassing topic with each year that passes. We all realise that the modern corporation is one of the most ingenious concepts ever devised. Our lives are dominated by corporations. We eat and breathe through them, we travel with them, we are entertained by them, most of us work for them. Most corporations aim to add value to society, and they very often do. Some, however, are exploiting, polluting, poisoning and impoverishing us…

The Private Equity ReviewEdition 9

Editor Stephen L Ritchie

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Private equity professionals need practical and informed guidance from local practitioners about how to raise money and close deals in multiple jurisdictions.

It contains contributions from leading private equity practitioners in 22 different countries, with observations and advice on private equity dealmaking and fundraising in their respective jurisdictions.

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

Whether a company is looking to list in its home country or is exploring listing outside of its own jurisdiction, it is important that the company and its management are aware from the outset of the legal requirements as well as potential pitfalls that may impact the offering. Moreover, once a company is public, there are ongoing jurisdiction-specific disclosure and other requirements with which it must comply. This fourth edition introduces the intricacies of taking a company public in these jurisdictions and serves as a guide for issuers and their directors and management.

The Public-Private Partnership Law ReviewEdition 6

Editors André Luiz Freire, Thiago Luís Sombra and Raul Dias dos Santos Neto

Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados

The sixth edition brings chapters regarding PPP practices prepared by distinguished law firms from countries such as Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Portugal, Russia, Senegal, Serbia, Spain, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam. We hope you enjoy this sixth edition and that it serves as a definitive and comprehensive guide for topics related to PPPs.

The Private Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 13

Editors Ilene Knable Gotts and Kevin S Schwartz

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Private antitrust litigation is largely a work in progress in many parts of the world. Change occurs slowly in some jurisdictions, but clearly the direction is favourable to the recognition that private antitrust enforcement has a role to play. Many of the issues raised in this book remain unresolved by the courts in many countries. The one constant across almost all jurisdictions is the upward trend in cartel enforcement activity, which is likely to be a continuous source for private litigation in the future.

The Life Sciences Law ReviewEdition 8

Editor Richard Kingham

Covington & Burling LLP

The eighth edition of The Life Sciences Law Review covers a total of 33 jurisdictions, providing an overview of legal requirements of interest to pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies.

The Employment Law ReviewEdition 11

Editor Erika C Collins

Epstein Becker & Green

For the past decade, we have surveyed milestones and significant events in the international employment law space to update and publish The Employment Law Review. It is our hope that this text provides legal practitioners and human resources professionals with some guidance, best practices and comprehensive solutions to significant workforce issues that affect a company’s market position, strategy, innovation and culture.

The Environment and Climate Change Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Theodore L Garrett

Covington & Burling LLP

Environmental law is global in its reach. Multinational companies make business plans based on the laws and regulations of the countries in which they are headquartered and have manufacturing facilities as well as the countries in which they distribute and sell their products. This book offers a review, by leading environmental lawyers, of significant environmental laws and issues in their respective countries around the world.

The Labour and Employment Disputes ReviewEdition 3

Editor Nicholas Robertson

Mayer Brown LLP

A time-travelling employment lawyer from 10 years ago (if such an individual existed) would be astonished at the pace of change. In these circumstances, a book such as The Labour and Employment Disputes Review offers an opportunity not only to look at the bigger themes, but also to measure some of the changes taking place, year on year, as the world of work continues to evolve.

The Real Estate Law ReviewEdition 9

Editor John Nevin

Slaughter and May

Investors and their advisers need to understand real estate assets in the context of the global investment market, and The Real Estate Law Review seeks to help its readers to do just that. This edition extends to 28 key jurisdictions around the world. Each chapter has been updated to highlight key developments and their effect on the relevant domestic market. Together, the chapters offer a helpful and accessible overview of the global real estate market.

The Tax Disputes and Litigation ReviewEdition 8

Editor Simon Whitehead

Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP

The objective of this book is to provide tax professionals involved in disputes with revenue authorities in multiple jurisdictions with an outline of the principal issues arising in those jurisdictions. In this, the eighth edition, we have continued to add to the key jurisdictions where disputes are likely to occur for multinational businesses. Each chapter provides an overview of the procedural rules that govern tax appeals and highlights the pitfalls of which taxpayers need to be most aware.

The Dispute Resolution ReviewEdition 12

Editor Damian Taylor

Slaughter and May

The Dispute Resolution Review provides an indispensable overview of the civil court systems of 32 jurisdictions. It offers a guide to those who are faced with disputes that frequently cross international boundaries. As is often the way in law, difficult and complex problems can be solved in a number of ways, and this edition demonstrates that there are many different ways to organise and operate a legal system successfully, as well as overcoming challenges that life and politics throws up along the way.

The Inward Investment and International Taxation ReviewEdition 10

Editor Tim Sanders

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

It is hoped that this volume will prove to be a useful guide to the tax rules in the jurisdictions where clients conduct their businesses. Each chapter aims to provide topical and current insights from leading experts on the tax issues and opportunities in their respective jurisdictions. While specific tax advice is always essential, it is also necessary to have a broad understanding of the nature of the potential issues and advantages that lie ahead; this book provides a guide to these.

The Cartels and Leniency ReviewEdition 8

Editors

Editor John Buretta

Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP

Editor John Terzaken

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP

This book brings together leading competition law experts from 26 jurisdictions to address an issue of growing importance to large corporations, their managers and their lawyers: the potential liability, both civil and criminal, that may arise from unlawful agreements with competitors as to price, markets or output. The broad message of the book is that this risk is growing steadily. This book serves as a useful resource to the local practitioner, as well as those faced with navigating the global regulatory thicket in international cartel investigations.

The Consumer Finance Law ReviewEdition 4

Editors Rick Fischer, Obrea Poindexter and Jeremy Mandell

Morrison & Foerster LLP

Consumer choice for financial products and services is proliferating across global markets. The ability to reach consumers at any time on their mobile phones, tablets or other devices has helped attract substantial capital investment in consumer financial services. This survey of consumer finance law describes the legal and regulatory approaches taken in the jurisdictions covered. Each chapter addresses the key characteristics of, and current climate within, a particular jurisdiction. Although payments, lending and deposits are the focus of this survey, other financial products and services are discussed where relevant.

The Franchise Law ReviewEdition 7

Editor Mark Abell

Bird & Bird

This book provides an introduction to the basic elements of international franchising and an overview of the way that it is regulated in 28 jurisdictions. While this book certainly does not present readers with the complete answer to all the questions they may have about franchising in all the countries covered – that would require far more pages than it is possible to include in this one volume – it does seek to provide the reader with a high-level understanding of the challenges involved.

The Energy Mergers & Acquisitions Review Edition 1

Editors Sean T Wheeler, Kristin Mendoza, Roald Nashi and Robert S Fleishman

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Energy M&A is important in the facilitation of innovation, technological change, growth and access to resources in the energy industry. Effective energy M&A practitioners must address a broad range of legal and other issues that arise in all M&A transactions, as well as issues unique to the energy space. This volume puts down a marker in describing many key energy-related M&A issues. We hope our readers will find this to be a useful resource as they navigate the changing landscape of energy M&A.

The Sports Law ReviewEdition 5

Niederer Kraft Frey

The Sports Law Review, in its fifth edition, is intended as a practical, business-focused legal guide for all relevant stakeholder groups in the area of sports, including sports business entities, sports federations, sports clubs and athletes.

The Space Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Joanne Wheeler MBE

Alden Legal Limited

We are delighted to introduce the first edition of The Space Law Review. The importance of book will grow each year as the value of space activities increases, further applications of satellite technology are brought into use and the commercial revenues from the industry are recognised. Lawyers will be required to understand the international treaties, how they are enforced and applied in national law and apply such laws, regulations and policies, potentially creatively, to new technologies and business models.

The Complex Commercial Litigation Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Steven M Bierman

Sidley Austin LLP

Whether you are a corporate counsel, a business executive, a private practitioner, or a government official, and whether you are facing litigation or arbitration of a commercial dispute, negotiating a contract with an eye toward minimising litigation risk, or simply interested in learning more about this important area of law as related by seasoned and savvy practitioners, we hope you will find this volume informative, instructive, and enjoyable.

The Structured Products Law ReviewEdition 1

Editors Christopher S Schell, Yan Zhang and Derek Walters

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

Despite the significant growth of the global structured product market in recent years, very few books on legal and regulatory issues related to structured products are available. We hope that this publication will contribute to the knowledge base of legal practitioners and other structured product market participants. For our purposes, the term structured product refers to a pre-packaged investment that combines derivatives with other financial instruments to provide a return based on the performance of one or more underlying assets, including equity securities, indices, commodities, interest rates, currencies and, in some jurisdictions, credit risks.

The Third Party Litigation Funding Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Leslie Perrin

Calunius Capital LLP

The essence of third party funding remains the deployment of capital to fund the realisation of assets that are contingent on the resolution of some form of legal process. Demand grows as acceptance of TPF spreads. This is a global phenomenon, but the resolution of every dispute by the principal international dispute resolution mechanisms of litigation and arbitration will be rooted in the law of a particular jurisdiction, and this is the landscape across which this book will travel.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 9

Editor Jeffrey Golden

3 Hare Court Chambers

This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.

The Media and Entertainment Law ReviewEdition 1

Editors R Bruce Rich and Benjamin E Marks

Weil, Gotshal & Manges

We are very pleased to present this important survey work on the ever-evolving state of the law globally as affects the day-to-day operations of the media and entertainment industries. This volume should be understood to serve, not as an encyclopaedic resource covering the broad and often complex legal landscape affecting the media and entertainment industries, but, rather, as a current snapshot of developments and country trends likely to be of greatest interest to the practitioner.

The Banking Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Deborah Finkler

Slaughter and May

This year’s edition of The Banking Litigation Law Review demonstrates that the increase in litigation involving banks shows little sign of slowing. Although disputes arising from the 2008 financial crises are reaching their end, what might be termed ‘normal’ banking litigation has resumed, and is in no short supply.

The Acquisition and Leveraged Finance ReviewEdition 6

Editor Marc P Hanrahan

Milbank LLP

Leveraged finance, particularly with respect to acquisition financing, has been an expanding asset class for many years. This volume is intended to introduce the newcomer to the legal basics involved in leveraged finance, particularly acquisition finance, so that he or she is grounded in the underpinnings of the practice area. It is also intended to be a helpful update for the more seasoned practitioner with respect to what is new and what is being talked about in leveraged finance deals.

The Technology, Media and Telecommunications ReviewEdition 10

Editor John P Janka

Latham & Watkins LLP

As it has since inception, this tenth edition of The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review provides a survey of evolving legal constructs in 21 jurisdictions around the world. It remains a business-focused framework rather than a legal treatise, and strives to provide a general overview for those interested in evolving law and policy in the rapidly changing TMT sector.

The Securitisation Law Review Edition 1

Editor Michael Urschel

King & Spalding LLP

The purpose of this inaugural edition of The Securitisation Law Review is to provide securitisation attorneys, borrowers, lenders and other market participants with insight into a sample of structural frameworks and regulatory issues surrounding the industry in a broad array of jurisdictions. This edition is not intended to be a comprehensive overview of securitisation regulation and structures in every jurisdiction, but rather to provide a frame of reference for, and a comparison of, the various structural features available and the regulatory considerations necessary in securitising assets globally.

The Insolvency ReviewEdition 7

Editor Donald S Bernstein

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

This seventh edition of The Insolvency Review once again offers an in-depth review of market conditions and insolvency case developments in key countries. A debt of gratitude is owed to the outstanding professionals around the world who have dedicated their time and talents to this book. As always, their contributions reflect diverse viewpoints and approaches, which in turn reflect the diversity of their respective national commercial cultures and laws.

The Patent Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

The Patent Litigation Law Review does not only summarise patent litigation procedures. The respective contributors to it, as leading practitioners in each of their jurisdictions, also focus on recent developments in substantive patent law as demonstrated by the most important recent court decisions in their respective jurisdictions, meaning that this Review also provides insight into the current controversies that affect patent law generally.

The Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption ReviewEdition 8

Editor Mark F Mendelsohn

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

This eighth edition presents the views and observations of leading anti-corruption practitioners in jurisdictions spanning the globe. Given the numerous recent changes in domestic legal regimes, and the uncertainty in international relations, this book and the wealth of learning that it contains from around the world, will help guide practitioners and their clients when navigating the perils of corruption in foreign and transnational business, and in related internal and government investigations.

The Global Damages ReviewEdition 2

Editor Errol Soriano

Duff & Phelps

In the inaugural edition of this publication, we addressed various rules that set boundaries on what is permissible damages evidence. The focus in that publication was to survey the codified rules and common law principles underpinning the analysis and presentation of damages. In this, the second edition, we expand on that analysis with recent changes to the rules, and the authors also summarise noteworthy cases from the various jurisdictions.

The Trademarks Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Jonathan Clegg

Cleveland Scott York

The key objectives for each of the many jurisdictions included in the publication are to provide, first, an annual snapshot of trademark law that includes a summary of the key legal provisions, second, a review of recent developments and trends from the courts, and third, an informed view of areas of expected legal activity and legislative change going forward. To this end, our panel of leading trademark practitioners, including those from several countries new to the publication, have each been invited to provide a chapter of commentary on their own jurisdiction.

The Insurance Disputes Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Joanna Page

Allen & Overy LLP

We are delighted to present the second edition of The Insurance Disputes Law Review. The first edition was very well received and demonstrated both the need and the very active interest, evident across the globe, in the legal frameworks for insurance and, in particular, in the insight that the developing disputes arena provides into this fascinating area. To be as user-friendly as possible, each chapter follows the same format – first providing an overview of the key framework for dealing with disputes, and then giving an update of recent developments in disputes.

The Privacy, Data Protection and Cybersecurity Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Alan Charles Raul

Sidley Austin LLP

Following the first year of life under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and with only months to go until the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect, 2019 feels more like Waiting for Godot than Hallelujah Chorus. Unless policy makers around the world make a real effort to identify the actual privacy risks people face, we will see more of the same in 2020 – an incessant barrage of tedious cookie notices, overwrought haranguing against tailored advertising and more blaming of victims of cybercrime for governments’ failure to protect their economies from electronic attack by sophisticated state actors and criminals.

The Oil and Gas Law ReviewEdition 7

Editor Christopher Strong

Vinson & Elkins LLP

International oil and gas law is a fascinating field, sitting at an intersection of law, politics and business. Practitioners in this field must be familiar not only with international norms and practices, but also local legal and regulatory requirements that can vary substantially from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The Oil and Gas Law Review is intended to serve as a starting point for practitioners in gaining an understanding of the key legal requirements in the jurisdictions in which they may be advising clients on transactional and operational matters.

The Mining Law ReviewEdition 8

Editor Erik Richer La Flèche

Stikeman Elliott LLP

The Mining Law Review is designed to be a practical, business-focused ‘year in review’ analysis of recent changes, developments and their effects, and a look forward at expected trends. The first part of the book is divided into 19 chapters, each dealing with mining in a particular jurisdiction. The second part of the book has three chapters that focus on financing.

The Islamic Finance and Markets ReviewEdition 4

Editors John Dewar and Munib Hussain

Milbank LLP

We are honoured to present the fourth edition of The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review. The chapters that follow describe the manner in which Islamic, or shariah-compliant, finance is practised in various jurisdictions throughout the world. Although each country will have variations, one of the most striking features of Islamic finance as a legal discipline is that it includes core concepts and structures that cross jurisdictional boundaries.

The Executive Remuneration ReviewEdition 8

Editors

Editor Arthur Kohn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

Editor Janet Cooper

Tapestry Compliance

Executive remuneration encompasses a diverse range of practices and is consequently influenced by many different areas of the law, including tax, employment, securities and other aspects of corporate law. We hope this book will be particularly useful in circumstances where a corporation is considering establishing a presence in a new jurisdiction, and is seeking to understand the various rules and regulations that may govern executive employment (or the corporate governance rules relating thereto) with regard to newly hired (or transferring) executives in that jurisdiction.

The Foreign Investment Regulation ReviewEdition 7

Editors Calvin S Goldman QC and Michael Koch

Goodmans LLP

Foreign investment continues to garner a great deal of attention. This Review provides a comprehensive guide to laws, regulations, policies and practices governing foreign investment in key international jurisdictions. It includes contributions from leading experts around the world from some of the most widely recognised law firms in their respective jurisdictions.

The Asset Tracing and Recovery ReviewEdition 7

Editor Robert Hunter

Robert Hunter Consultants

‘Fraud’ is a word that people find easier to use than to define. Partly for this reason, it is difficult for lawyers to summarise the way in which their particular jurisdictions deal with it. Some of the sources of their laws will be domestic and will have evolved over time. Others will be recent international conventions, where regard must be had to the decisions of other jurisdictions.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 8

Editor John Riches

RMW Law LLP

There is no doubt that the increased cost and complexity of regulation is driving trends towards simpler structures with fewer layers and involving fewer jurisdictions. The theme of ever-greater levels of transparency and increased complexity of overlapping regulation continues. The dichotomy between Western Europe and the United States, in terms of their different approach to these issues, also remains very apparent to observers.

The Real Estate M&A and Private Equity ReviewEdition 4

Editors Adam O Emmerich and Robin Panovka

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

To create this publication, we have invited leading practitioners from around the globe to offer practical insights into what is going on around the conference tables and in the markets in their jurisdiction, with an eye to cross-border trends and transactions. We hope this compilation of insight from our remarkable multinational authors produces clarity and transparency into this exciting world of ‘liquid real estate’ and helps to further fuel the growth of the sector.

The Healthcare Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Sarah Ellson

Fieldfisher LLP

Welcome to the third edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review now provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Russia and South Africa in this edition. Our expert authors have also reviewed and updated their chapters to reflect the ever evolving situation in the jurisdictions covered in earlier editions. While a hugely diverse area of practice, it is possible to discern common challenges and similar approaches in very different countries.

The Virtual Currency Regulation ReviewEdition 2

Editors Michael S Sackheim and Nathan A Howell

Sidley Austin LLP

The second edition of the Review provides a practical analysis of recent legal and regulatory changes and developments, and of their effects, and looks forward to expected trends in the area of virtual currencies on a country-by-country basis. It is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to the regulation of virtual currencies globally or in any of the included jurisdictions. Instead, for each jurisdiction, the authors have endeavoured to provide a sufficient overview for the reader to understand the current legal and regulatory environment.

The Asset Management ReviewEdition 8

Editor Paul Dickson

Slaughter and May

This continues to be a period of change and uncertainty for the asset management industry, as funds and managers act to comply with regulatory developments and investor requirements, and adapt to the changing geopolitical landscape. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition of The Asset Management Review will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

The Mergers & Acquisitions ReviewEdition 13

Editor Mark Zerdin

Slaughter and May

We would like to thank the contributors for their support in producing the 13th edition of The Mergers & Acquisitions Review. We hope the commentary in the following 47 chapters will provide a richer understanding of the shape of the global markets, and the challenges and opportunities facing market participants.

The International Trade Law ReviewEdition 5

Editors Folkert Graafsma and Joris Cornelis

VVGB Advocaten

In the years since the first edition the dynamics of trade have fundamentally changed in a disturbing manner. As also noted last year, the spectre of Brexit is looming ever closer. Second, the dynamics of the interwoven jumbo economy of ‘Chimerica’ continue to be rewritten and deteriorate as we speak, with trade policies being abused as instruments to meet political goals. Third, and arguably even more fundamental, the asphyxiation of the Appellate Body slowly continues, despite multiple attempts by over 20 members to rewrite the Appellate Review process and find creative solutions.

The Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewEdition 4

Editor Francis J Aquila

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP [Dupe]

There is no question that shareholder activism is a prominent, and likely permanent, feature of the corporate landscape. As both shareholder activists and the companies they target have become more geographically diverse, it is increasingly important for legal and corporate practitioners to understand the legal framework and emerging trends of shareholder activism in the various international jurisdictions facing activism. The Shareholder Rights and Activism Review is designed as a primer on these aspects of shareholder activism in such jurisdictions.

The Aviation Law ReviewEdition 7

Editor Sean Gates

Gates Aviation LLP

The Aviation Law Review has from the outset been one of The Law Reviews’ most successful publications. We would like to extend our thanks to the many contributors to this volume and welcome those who have joined the group. Their studied, careful and insightful contributions are much appreciated by all those who now refer to The Aviation Law Review as one of their frontline resources.

The Merger Control ReviewEdition 10

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

As this book evidences, today almost all competition authorities have a notification process in place – with most requiring pre-merger notification for transactions that meet certain prescribed minimum thresholds. Additional jurisdictions, most recently in South America, have added pre-merger notification regimes. In our endeavour to keep our readers well informed, we have expanded the jurisdictions covered by this book to include the newer regimes as well. Also, the book now includes chapters devoted to such ‘hot’ M&A sectors as pharmaceuticals, and high technology and media, in key jurisdictions to provide a more in-depth discussion of recent developments.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 12

Editor Christopher Mallon

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

We are very pleased to present this twelfth edition of The Restructuring Review. As with the previous editions, our intention is to help general counsel, private practice lawyers and the public sector understand the conditions prevailing in the global restructuring market in 2019, and to highlight some of the more significant legal and commercial developments and trends that have been evident in recent years, and that are expected to be significant in the future.

The Renewable Energy Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Karen B Wong

Milbank LLP

This compendium has been formulated to provide you with a good overview of the legal framework and current status and challenges in structuring, financing and investing in renewable energy projects in the selected jurisdictions. Whether you are someone already active in this sector or merely interested in learning more about the policies, legal structures and state of play in the renewable energy industry globally, we hope that this guide will aid you in your efforts as a participant in an industry that is increasing the number of new sources for energy projects with fewer carbon emissions.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 9

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Under what circumstances can the corporate entity itself be charged with a crime? What are the possible penalties? Under what circumstances should a corporation voluntarily self-report potential misconduct on the part of its employees? Is it a realistic option for a corporation to defend itself at trial against a government agency? And how does a corporation manage the delicate interactions with employees whose conduct is at issue? The International Investigations Review answers these questions and many more and will serve as an indispensable guide when your clients face criminal or regulatory scrutiny in a country other than your own.

The Acquisition and Leveraged Finance ReviewEdition 6

Editor Marc P Hanrahan

Milbank LLP

Leveraged finance, particularly with respect to acquisition financing, has been an expanding asset class for many years. This volume is intended to introduce the newcomer to the legal basics involved in leveraged finance, particularly acquisition finance, so that he or she is grounded in the underpinnings of the practice area. It is also intended to be a helpful update for the more seasoned practitioner with respect to what is new and what is being talked about in leveraged finance deals.

The Banking Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Deborah Finkler

Slaughter and May

This year’s edition of The Banking Litigation Law Review demonstrates that the increase in litigation involving banks shows little sign of slowing. Although disputes arising from the 2008 financial crises are reaching their end, what might be termed ‘normal’ banking litigation has resumed, and is in no short supply.

The Banking Regulation ReviewEdition 11

Editor Jan Putnis

Slaughter and May

This edition covers 37 countries and territories in addition to the chapters on international initiatives and the European Union. Banking regulation will have a critically important role to play in determining how and when banks can and must help their customers get through this difficult time, and financial regulators must play their part to help facilitate this. Like much else in the financial world, banking regulation will never be the same again and this crisis is likely to lead to new regulatory initiatives to help banks to support stricken economies and businesses.

The Cartels and Leniency ReviewEdition 8

Editors

Editor John Buretta

Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP

Editor John Terzaken

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP

This book brings together leading competition law experts from 26 jurisdictions to address an issue of growing importance to large corporations, their managers and their lawyers: the potential liability, both civil and criminal, that may arise from unlawful agreements with competitors as to price, markets or output. The broad message of the book is that this risk is growing steadily. This book serves as a useful resource to the local practitioner, as well as those faced with navigating the global regulatory thicket in international cartel investigations.

The Class Actions Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Camilla Sanger

Slaughter and May

Class actions and major group litigation can be seismic events, not only for the parties involved, but also for whole industries and parts of society. That potential impact means they are one of the few types of claim that have become truly global in both importance and scope, as reflected in this fourth edition. As with previous editions of this review, this updated publication aims to provide practitioners and clients with a single overview handbook to which they can turn for the key procedures, developments and factors in play in a number of the world’s most important jurisdictions.

The Complex Commercial Litigation Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Steven M Bierman

Sidley Austin LLP

Whether you are a corporate counsel, a business executive, a private practitioner, or a government official, and whether you are facing litigation or arbitration of a commercial dispute, negotiating a contract with an eye toward minimising litigation risk, or simply interested in learning more about this important area of law as related by seasoned and savvy practitioners, we hope you will find this volume informative, instructive, and enjoyable.

The Consumer Finance Law ReviewEdition 4

Editors Rick Fischer, Obrea Poindexter and Jeremy Mandell

Morrison & Foerster LLP

Consumer choice for financial products and services is proliferating across global markets. The ability to reach consumers at any time on their mobile phones, tablets or other devices has helped attract substantial capital investment in consumer financial services. This survey of consumer finance law describes the legal and regulatory approaches taken in the jurisdictions covered. Each chapter addresses the key characteristics of, and current climate within, a particular jurisdiction. Although payments, lending and deposits are the focus of this survey, other financial products and services are discussed where relevant.

The Corporate Governance ReviewEdition 10

Editor Willem J L Calkoen

NautaDutilh

In this 10th edition, we can see that corporate governance is becoming a more vital and all-encompassing topic with each year that passes. We all realise that the modern corporation is one of the most ingenious concepts ever devised. Our lives are dominated by corporations. We eat and breathe through them, we travel with them, we are entertained by them, most of us work for them. Most corporations aim to add value to society, and they very often do. Some, however, are exploiting, polluting, poisoning and impoverishing us…

The Corporate Immigration ReviewEdition 10

Editor Chris Magrath

Magrath Sheldrick LLP

The year 2020 will of course go down in history as one of the most unusual and difficult years the world has faced in modern times. As we prepared this 10th edition of The Corporate Immigration Review, most of the world’s immigration systems had ceased functioning with any semblance of normality. All over the world, government policies and national strategies have been upended by the threat of covid-19. As we celebrate the 10th edition, we hope the 11th will be produced in the context of a greatly revitalised world.

The Corporate Tax Planning Law ReviewEdition 2

Editors Jodi J Schwartz and Swift S O Edgar

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

We are pleased to present the second edition of The Corporate Tax Planning Review.

The Dispute Resolution ReviewEdition 12

Editor Damian Taylor

Slaughter and May

The Dispute Resolution Review provides an indispensable overview of the civil court systems of 32 jurisdictions. It offers a guide to those who are faced with disputes that frequently cross international boundaries. As is often the way in law, difficult and complex problems can be solved in a number of ways, and this edition demonstrates that there are many different ways to organise and operate a legal system successfully, as well as overcoming challenges that life and politics throws up along the way.

The Dominance and Monopolies ReviewEdition 8

Editors Maurits Dolmans and Henry Mostyn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

This eighth edition of The Dominance and Monopolies Review seeks to provide an accessible and easily-understandable summary of global abuse of dominance rules. As with previous years, each chapter – authored by specialist local experts – summarises the abuse of dominance rules in a jurisdiction; provides a review of the regime’s enforcement activity in the past year; and sets out a prediction for future developments.

The Employment Law ReviewEdition 11

Editor Erika C Collins

Epstein Becker & Green

For the past decade, we have surveyed milestones and significant events in the international employment law space to update and publish The Employment Law Review. It is our hope that this text provides legal practitioners and human resources professionals with some guidance, best practices and comprehensive solutions to significant workforce issues that affect a company’s market position, strategy, innovation and culture.

The Energy Mergers & Acquisitions Review Edition 1

Editors Sean T Wheeler, Kristin Mendoza, Roald Nashi and Robert S Fleishman

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Energy M&A is important in the facilitation of innovation, technological change, growth and access to resources in the energy industry. Effective energy M&A practitioners must address a broad range of legal and other issues that arise in all M&A transactions, as well as issues unique to the energy space. This volume puts down a marker in describing many key energy-related M&A issues. We hope our readers will find this to be a useful resource as they navigate the changing landscape of energy M&A.

The Energy Regulation and Markets ReviewEdition 9

Editor David L Schwartz

Latham & Watkins LLP

In our ninth year of writing and publishing this book the most pressing global concerns have revolved around the covid-19 pandemic. Accordingly, many of our contributing authors have emphasised concerns associated with the effects of the crisis on energy demand and consumption, and delays in the development of infrastructure. Beyond this crisis, we have seen many other significant geopolitical changes that have added uncertainties to global energy policies.

The Environment and Climate Change Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Theodore L Garrett

Covington & Burling LLP

Environmental law is global in its reach. Multinational companies make business plans based on the laws and regulations of the countries in which they are headquartered and have manufacturing facilities as well as the countries in which they distribute and sell their products. This book offers a review, by leading environmental lawyers, of significant environmental laws and issues in their respective countries around the world.

The Executive Remuneration ReviewEdition 8

Editors

Editor Arthur Kohn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

Editor Janet Cooper

Tapestry Compliance

Executive remuneration encompasses a diverse range of practices and is consequently influenced by many different areas of the law, including tax, employment, securities and other aspects of corporate law. We hope this book will be particularly useful in circumstances where a corporation is considering establishing a presence in a new jurisdiction, and is seeking to understand the various rules and regulations that may govern executive employment (or the corporate governance rules relating thereto) with regard to newly hired (or transferring) executives in that jurisdiction.

The Financial Technology Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Thomas A Frick

Niederer Kraft Frey

This is already the third edition of The Financial Technology Law Review. The authors of this publication are from the most widely respected law firms in their jurisdictions. We hope that you will find their experience invaluable and enlightening when dealing with the varied issues fintech raises in the legal and regulatory field. The emphasis of this book is on the law and practice of each of the jurisdictions, but discussion of emerging or unsettled issues has been provided where appropriate.

The Foreign Investment Regulation ReviewEdition 7

Editors Calvin S Goldman QC and Michael Koch

Goodmans LLP

Foreign investment continues to garner a great deal of attention. This Review provides a comprehensive guide to laws, regulations, policies and practices governing foreign investment in key international jurisdictions. It includes contributions from leading experts around the world from some of the most widely recognised law firms in their respective jurisdictions.

The Franchise Law ReviewEdition 7

Editor Mark Abell

Bird & Bird

This book provides an introduction to the basic elements of international franchising and an overview of the way that it is regulated in 28 jurisdictions. While this book certainly does not present readers with the complete answer to all the questions they may have about franchising in all the countries covered – that would require far more pages than it is possible to include in this one volume – it does seek to provide the reader with a high-level understanding of the challenges involved.

The Gambling Law ReviewEdition 5

Editor Carl Rohsler

Memery Crystal

The Gambling Law Review is designed for practitioners across the world who want to find a way quickly to digest and understand the framework of gambling legislation in key jurisdictions.

Editor Errol Soriano

Duff & Phelps

Editors Jonathan Davey and Amy Gatenby

The Healthcare Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Sarah Ellson

Welcome to the third edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review now provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Russia and South Africa in this edition. Our expert authors have also reviewed and updated their chapters to reflect the ever evolving situation in the jurisdictions covered in earlier editions. While a hugely diverse area of practice, it is possible to discern common challenges and similar approaches in very different countries.

The Initial Public Offerings Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor David J Goldschmidt

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

Whether a company is looking to list in its home country or is exploring listing outside of its own jurisdiction, it is important that the company and its management are aware from the outset of the legal requirements as well as potential pitfalls that may impact the offering. Moreover, once a company is public, there are ongoing jurisdiction-specific disclosure and other requirements with which it must comply. This fourth edition introduces the intricacies of taking a company public in these jurisdictions and serves as a guide for issuers and their directors and management.

The Insolvency ReviewEdition 7

Editor Donald S Bernstein

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

This seventh edition of The Insolvency Review once again offers an in-depth review of market conditions and insolvency case developments in key countries.

The Insurance and Reinsurance Law ReviewEdition 8

Editor Peter Rogan

Ince

Insurance and reinsurance play an important role in the world economy. Given the expanding reach of the industry, there is a need for a source of reference that analyses recent developments in the key jurisdictions on a comparative basis. This volume, to which leading insurance and reinsurance practitioners around the world have made valuable contributions, seeks to fulfil that need.

The Intellectual Property ReviewEdition 9

Editor Dominick A Conde

Venable

To aid practitioners in this changing environment of global intellectual property, we now present the ninth edition of The Intellectual Property Review. In this edition, we present 16 chapters that provide an overview of the forms of intellectual property coverage available in each particular jurisdiction, along with an update of its most recent developments. Each chapter is written and assembled by leading practitioners in that jurisdiction.

The Intellectual Property and Antitrust ReviewEdition 5

Editor Thomas Vinje

Clifford Chance LLP

Intellectual property practitioners need to look beyond intellectual property laws themselves to understand the antitrust limits on the free exercise of rights. The task of this book is, with respect to key jurisdictions globally, to provide an annual concrete and practical overview of developments on the relationship between antitrust and intellectual property. This fifth edition provides an update on recent developments, as well as an overview of the overall existing lay of the land regarding the relationship between the two bodies of law.

The International Arbitration ReviewEdition 11

Editor James H Carter

WilmerHale LLP

International arbitration is a fast-moving express train. The international arbitration community has created other publications that follow these developments regularly. Scholarly arbitration literature follows behind, at a more leisurely pace. There is a niche to be filled by an analytical review of what has occurred in each of the important arbitration jurisdictions during the past year. This volume, to which leading arbitration practitioners around the world have made valuable contributions, seeks to fill that space.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 9

Editor Jeffrey Golden

3 Hare Court Chambers

This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 9

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Under what circumstances can the corporate entity itself be charged with a crime? What are the possible penalties? Under what circumstances should a corporation voluntarily self-report potential misconduct on the part of its employees? Is it a realistic option for a corporation to defend itself at trial against a government agency? And how does a corporation manage the delicate interactions with employees whose conduct is at issue? The International Investigations Review answers these questions and many more and will serve as an indispensable guide when your clients face criminal or regulatory scrutiny in a country other than your own.

The Investment Treaty Arbitration ReviewEdition 5

Editor Barton Legum

Dentons

The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review fulfils an essential function. Updated every year, it provides a current perspective on a quickly evolving topic. Organised by topic rather than by jurisdiction, it allows readers to access rapidly not only the most recent developments on a given subject, but also the debate that led to and the context behind those developments. This fifth edition adds new topics to the Review, increasing its scope and utility to practitioners.

The Inward Investment and International Taxation ReviewEdition 10

Editor Tim Sanders

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

It is hoped that this volume will prove to be a useful guide to the tax rules in the jurisdictions where clients conduct their businesses. Each chapter aims to provide topical and current insights from leading experts on the tax issues and opportunities in their respective jurisdictions. While specific tax advice is always essential, it is also necessary to have a broad understanding of the nature of the potential issues and advantages that lie ahead; this book provides a guide to these.

We are honoured to present the fourth edition of The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review. The chapters that follow describe the manner in which Islamic, or shariah-compliant, finance is practised in various jurisdictions throughout the world. Although each country will have variations, one of the most striking features of Islamic finance as a legal discipline is that it includes core concepts and structures that cross jurisdictional boundaries.

The Labour and Employment Disputes ReviewEdition 3

Editor Nicholas Robertson

Mayer Brown LLP

A time-travelling employment lawyer from 10 years ago (if such an individual existed) would be astonished at the pace of change. In these circumstances, a book such as The Labour and Employment Disputes Review offers an opportunity not only to look at the bigger themes, but also to measure some of the changes taking place, year on year, as the world of work continues to evolve.

The Lending and Secured Finance ReviewEdition 6

Editor Azadeh Nassiri

Slaughter and May

This sixth edition contains contributions from leading practitioners in 25 different countries. We would like to thank each of the contributors for taking the time to share their expertise on the developments in the corporate lending and secured finance markets in their respective jurisdictions, and on the challenges and opportunities facing market participants.

The Life Sciences Law ReviewEdition 8

Editor Richard Kingham

Covington & Burling LLP

The eighth edition of The Life Sciences Law Review covers a total of 33 jurisdictions, providing an overview of legal requirements of interest to pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies.

The Media and Entertainment Law ReviewEdition 1

Editors R Bruce Rich and Benjamin E Marks

Weil, Gotshal & Manges

We are very pleased to present this important survey work on the ever-evolving state of the law globally as affects the day-to-day operations of the media and entertainment industries. This volume should be understood to serve, not as an encyclopaedic resource covering the broad and often complex legal landscape affecting the media and entertainment industries, but, rather, as a current snapshot of developments and country trends likely to be of greatest interest to the practitioner.

The Merger Control ReviewEdition 10

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

As this book evidences, today almost all competition authorities have a notification process in place – with most requiring pre-merger notification for transactions that meet certain prescribed minimum thresholds. Additional jurisdictions, most recently in South America, have added pre-merger notification regimes. In our endeavour to keep our readers well informed, we have expanded the jurisdictions covered by this book to include the newer regimes as well. Also, the book now includes chapters devoted to such ‘hot’ M&A sectors as pharmaceuticals, and high technology and media, in key jurisdictions to provide a more in-depth discussion of recent developments.

The Mergers & Acquisitions ReviewEdition 13

Editor Mark Zerdin

Slaughter and May

We would like to thank the contributors for their support in producing the 13th edition of The Mergers & Acquisitions Review. We hope the commentary in the following 47 chapters will provide a richer understanding of the shape of the global markets, and the challenges and opportunities facing market participants.

The Mining Law ReviewEdition 8

Editor Erik Richer La Flèche

Stikeman Elliott LLP

The Mining Law Review is designed to be a practical, business-focused ‘year in review’ analysis of recent changes, developments and their effects, and a look forward at expected trends. The first part of the book is divided into 19 chapters, each dealing with mining in a particular jurisdiction. The second part of the book has three chapters that focus on financing.

The Oil and Gas Law ReviewEdition 7

Editor Christopher Strong

Vinson & Elkins LLP

International oil and gas law is a fascinating field, sitting at an intersection of law, politics and business. Practitioners in this field must be familiar not only with international norms and practices, but also local legal and regulatory requirements that can vary substantially from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The Oil and Gas Law Review is intended to serve as a starting point for practitioners in gaining an understanding of the key legal requirements in the jurisdictions in which they may be advising clients on transactional and operational matters.

The Patent Litigation Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

The Patent Litigation Law Review does not only summarise patent litigation procedures. The respective contributors to it, as leading practitioners in each of their jurisdictions, also focus on recent developments in substantive patent law as demonstrated by the most important recent court decisions in their respective jurisdictions, meaning that this Review also provides insight into the current controversies that affect patent law generally.

The Privacy, Data Protection and Cybersecurity Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Alan Charles Raul

Sidley Austin LLP

Following the first year of life under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and with only months to go until the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect, 2019 feels more like Waiting for Godot than Hallelujah Chorus. Unless policy makers around the world make a real effort to identify the actual privacy risks people face, we will see more of the same in 2020 – an incessant barrage of tedious cookie notices, overwrought haranguing against tailored advertising and more blaming of victims of cybercrime for governments’ failure to protect their economies from electronic attack by sophisticated state actors and criminals.

The Private Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 13

Editors Ilene Knable Gotts and Kevin S Schwartz

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Private antitrust litigation is largely a work in progress in many parts of the world. Change occurs slowly in some jurisdictions, but clearly the direction is favourable to the recognition that private antitrust enforcement has a role to play. Many of the issues raised in this book remain unresolved by the courts in many countries. The one constant across almost all jurisdictions is the upward trend in cartel enforcement activity, which is likely to be a continuous source for private litigation in the future.

The Private Equity ReviewEdition 9

Editor Stephen L Ritchie

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Private equity professionals need practical and informed guidance from local practitioners about how to raise money and close deals in multiple jurisdictions. The Private Equity Review has been prepared with this need in mind. It contains contributions from leading private equity practitioners in 22 different countries, with observations and advice on private equity dealmaking and fundraising in their respective jurisdictions.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 8

Editor John Riches

RMW Law LLP

There is no doubt that the increased cost and complexity of regulation is driving trends towards simpler structures with fewer layers and involving fewer jurisdictions. The theme of ever-greater levels of transparency and increased complexity of overlapping regulation continues. The dichotomy between Western Europe and the United States, in terms of their different approach to these issues, also remains very apparent to observers.

The Product Regulation and Liability ReviewEdition 7

Editors Chilton Davis Varner and Madison Kitchens

King & Spalding LLP

This edition covers 15 countries and territories and includes a high-level overview of each jurisdiction’s product liability framework, recent changes and developments, and a look forward at expected trends. Each chapter contains a brief introduction to the country’s product liability framework, followed by four main sections: regulatory oversight, causes of action, litigation, and the year in review.

The Professional Negligence Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Nicholas Bird

Reynolds Porter Chamberlain LLP

This third edition is the product of the skill and knowledge of leading practitioners in 15 jurisdictions, setting out the key elements of professional conduct and obligations. Each chapter deals with the fundamental principles of professional negligence law, including obligations, fora, dispute resolution mechanisms, remedies and time bars. The chapter authors then review factors specific to the main professions and conclude with an outline of the developments of the past year and issues to look out for in the year ahead.

The Project Finance Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor David F Asmus

Sidley Austin LLP

This edition builds on the work from the inaugural edition, expanding both the scope and depth of the resource offered. As noted last year, many of the classic project finance texts are becoming increasingly dated as the years go by, while project finance itself continues to evolve with the markets it serves. The purpose of this volume is to provide a living guide to project finance that will be updated on a regular basis, while still tackling the core project finance concepts that every practitioner needs to understand.

The Projects and Construction ReviewEdition 10

Editor Júlio César Bueno

Pinheiro Neto Advogados

Project financing and construction law are highly specialised areas of legal practice. Although there is an increased perception that project financing and construction law are global issues, the local knowledge offered by leading experts in 19 countries has shown us that to understand the world, we must first make sense of what happens locally; to further advance our understanding of the law we must resist the modern view that all that matters is global and what is regional is of no importance.

The Public Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 12

Editor Aidan Synnott

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

In the reports from around the world collected in this volume, we continue to see international overlap among the issues and industries attracting government enforcement attention. This year, we read with particular interest the discussions of activity in many jurisdictions regarding digital platform competition issues. We also continue to see the evolution and refinement of general approaches to competition law enforcement in several jurisdictions.

The Public-Private Partnership Law ReviewEdition 6

Editors André Luiz Freire, Thiago Luís Sombra and Raul Dias dos Santos Neto

Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados

The sixth edition brings chapters regarding PPP practices prepared by distinguished law firms from countries such as Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Portugal, Russia, Senegal, Serbia, Spain, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam. We hope you enjoy this sixth edition and that it serves as a definitive and comprehensive guide for topics related to PPPs.

The Real Estate Investment Structure Taxation Review Edition 2

Editors

Editor Giuseppe Andrea Giannantonio

Chiomenti

Editor Tobias Steinmann

EPRA

The aim of this volume is to provide a useful guide to those international and institutional investors willing to invest in real estate properties located in Europe, and to illustrate in a comparative manner possible alternatives for the establishment of investment platforms in Europe and investment vehicles at a local level. In particular, each country-specific chapter provides insights from leading experts on key tax considerations and investment opportunities based on the relevant national legislation.

The Real Estate Law ReviewEdition 9

Editor John Nevin

Slaughter and May

Investors and their advisers need to understand real estate assets in the context of the global investment market, and The Real Estate Law Review seeks to help its readers to do just that. This edition extends to 28 key jurisdictions around the world. Each chapter has been updated to highlight key developments and their effect on the relevant domestic market. Together, the chapters offer a helpful and accessible overview of the global real estate market.

The Real Estate M&A and Private Equity ReviewEdition 4

Editors Adam O Emmerich and Robin Panovka

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

To create this publication, we have invited leading practitioners from around the globe to offer practical insights into what is going on around the conference tables and in the markets in their jurisdiction, with an eye to cross-border trends and transactions. We hope this compilation of insight from our remarkable multinational authors produces clarity and transparency into this exciting world of ‘liquid real estate’ and helps to further fuel the growth of the sector.

The Renewable Energy Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Karen B Wong

Milbank LLP

This compendium has been formulated to provide you with a good overview of the legal framework and current status and challenges in structuring, financing and investing in renewable energy projects in the selected jurisdictions. Whether you are someone already active in this sector or merely interested in learning more about the policies, legal structures and state of play in the renewable energy industry globally, we hope that this guide will aid you in your efforts as a participant in an industry that is increasing the number of new sources for energy projects with fewer carbon emissions.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 12

Editor Christopher Mallon

Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom

We are very pleased to present this twelfth edition of The Restructuring Review. As with the previous editions, our intention is to help general counsel, private practice lawyers and the public sector understand the conditions prevailing in the global restructuring market in 2019, and to highlight some of the more significant legal and commercial developments and trends that have been evident in recent years, and that are expected to be significant in the future.

The Securities Litigation ReviewEdition 6

Editor William Savitt

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

The Securities Litigation Review is a guided introduction to the international varieties of enforcing rights related to the issuance and exchange of publicly traded securities. This review focuses on litigation – how rights are created and vindicated against the backdrop of courtroom proceedings. Accordingly, this volume amounts to a cross-cultural review of the disputing process. While the subject matter is limited to securities litigation, which may well be the world’s most economically significant form of litigation, any survey of litigation is in great part a survey of procedure as much as substance.

The Securitisation Law Review Edition 1

Editor Michael Urschel

King & Spalding LLP

The purpose of this inaugural edition of The Securitisation Law Review is to provide securitisation attorneys, borrowers, lenders and other market participants with insight into a sample of structural frameworks and regulatory issues surrounding the industry in a broad array of jurisdictions. This edition is not intended to be a comprehensive overview of securitisation regulation and structures in every jurisdiction, but rather to provide a frame of reference for, and a comparison of, the various structural features available and the regulatory considerations necessary in securitising assets globally.

The Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewEdition 4

Editor Francis J Aquila

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP [Dupe]

There is no question that shareholder activism is a prominent, and likely permanent, feature of the corporate landscape. As both shareholder activists and the companies they target have become more geographically diverse, it is increasingly important for legal and corporate practitioners to understand the legal framework and emerging trends of shareholder activism in the various international jurisdictions facing activism. The Shareholder Rights and Activism Review is designed as a primer on these aspects of shareholder activism in such jurisdictions.

The Shipping Law ReviewEdition 7

Editors George Eddings, Andrew Chamberlain and Holly Colaço

HFW

The seventh edition of this book aims to continue to provide those involved in handling shipping disputes with an overview of the key issues relevant to multiple jurisdictions. We have again invited contributions on the law of leading maritime nations, including both major flag states and the countries in which most shipping companies are located. We also include chapters on the law of the major shipbuilding centres and a range of other jurisdictions.

The Space Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Joanne Wheeler MBE

Alden Legal Limited

We are delighted to introduce the first edition of The Space Law Review. The importance of book will grow each year as the value of space activities increases, further applications of satellite technology are brought into use and the commercial revenues from the industry are recognised. Lawyers will be required to understand the international treaties, how they are enforced and applied in national law and apply such laws, regulations and policies, potentially creatively, to new technologies and business models.

The Sports Law ReviewEdition 5

Editor András Gurovits

Niederer Kraft Frey

The Sports Law Review, in its fifth edition, is intended as a practical, business-focused legal guide for all relevant stakeholder groups in the area of sports, including sports business entities, sports federations, sports clubs and athletes. Its goal is to provide an analysis of recent developments and their effects on the sports law sector in 20 jurisdictions. It will serve as a guidebook for practitioners as to how a selected range of legal topics is dealt with under various national laws.

The Structured Products Law ReviewEdition 1

Editors Christopher S Schell, Yan Zhang and Derek Walters

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

Despite the significant growth of the global structured product market in recent years, very few books on legal and regulatory issues related to structured products are available. We hope that this publication will contribute to the knowledge base of legal practitioners and other structured product market participants. For our purposes, the term structured product refers to a pre-packaged investment that combines derivatives with other financial instruments to provide a return based on the performance of one or more underlying assets, including equity securities, indices, commodities, interest rates, currencies and, in some jurisdictions, credit risks.

The Tax Disputes and Litigation ReviewEdition 8

Editor Simon Whitehead

Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP

The objective of this book is to provide tax professionals involved in disputes with revenue authorities in multiple jurisdictions with an outline of the principal issues arising in those jurisdictions. In this, the eighth edition, we have continued to add to the key jurisdictions where disputes are likely to occur for multinational businesses. Each chapter provides an overview of the procedural rules that govern tax appeals and highlights the pitfalls of which taxpayers need to be most aware.

The Technology, Media and Telecommunications ReviewEdition 10

Editor John P Janka

Latham & Watkins LLP

As it has since inception, this tenth edition of The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review provides a survey of evolving legal constructs in 21 jurisdictions around the world. It remains a business-focused framework rather than a legal treatise, and strives to provide a general overview for those interested in evolving law and policy in the rapidly changing TMT sector.

The Third Party Litigation Funding Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Leslie Perrin

Calunius Capital LLP

The essence of third party funding remains the deployment of capital to fund the realisation of assets that are contingent on the resolution of some form of legal process. Demand grows as acceptance of TPF spreads. This is a global phenomenon, but the resolution of every dispute by the principal international dispute resolution mechanisms of litigation and arbitration will be rooted in the law of a particular jurisdiction, and this is the landscape across which this book will travel.

The Trademarks Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Jonathan Clegg

Cleveland Scott York

The key objectives for each of the many jurisdictions included in the publication are to provide, first, an annual snapshot of trademark law that includes a summary of the key legal provisions, second, a review of recent developments and trends from the courts, and third, an informed view of areas of expected legal activity and legislative change going forward. To this end, our panel of leading trademark practitioners, including those from several countries new to the publication, have each been invited to provide a chapter of commentary on their own jurisdiction.

The Transfer Pricing Law ReviewEdition 4

Editors Steve Edge and Dominic Robertson

Slaughter and May

This publication aims to give readers a high-level overview of the principal transfer pricing rules in each country covered in the Review. Each chapter summarises the country’s substantive transfer pricing rules, explains how a transfer pricing dispute is handled, from initial scrutiny through to litigation or settlement, and discusses the interaction between transfer pricing and other parts of the tax code (such as withholding taxes, customs duties, and attempts to prevent double taxation).

The Transport Finance Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Harry Theochari

Norton Rose Fulbright

The Transport Finance Law Review is intended to provide the industry with a guide to transport finance today, in each of the key jurisdictions globally in which aircraft, rolling stock and ships are financed. The aviation, rail and shipping industries each have their own unique characteristics and need lawyers with a deep understanding of how each of these complex industries operates. We have sought contributions from jurisdictions that play a leading role in the financing of transport assets. Each chapter provides an overview of the transport finance industry in these jurisdictions.

The Virtual Currency Regulation ReviewEdition 2

Editors Michael S Sackheim and Nathan A Howell

Sidley Austin LLP

The second edition of the Review provides a practical analysis of recent legal and regulatory changes and developments, and of their effects, and looks forward to expected trends in the area of virtual currencies on a country-by-country basis. It is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to the regulation of virtual currencies globally or in any of the included jurisdictions. Instead, for each jurisdiction, the authors have endeavoured to provide a sufficient overview for the reader to understand the current legal and regulatory environment.

The e-Discovery and Information Governance Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Jennifer Mott Williams

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP

Virtually unheard of 20 years ago, increasing data volumes and ever-changing technologies have resulted in e-discovery and information governance exploding onto the legal scene. Corporations face a wide array of overlapping and competing e-discovery and information governance laws and regulations impacting the use, retention and disposition of electronically stored information (ESI). This second edition of The e-Discovery and Information Governance Law Review provides a general overview of e-discovery and information governance.
