The Asset Management ReviewEdition 7

Editor Paul Dickson

Slaughter and May

While the global financial crisis of 2007 and 2008 may feel like an increasingly distant memory, its effects continue to be felt across the whole of the financial world. Despite significant improvements in the global economic landscape in the intervening years, global growth has been hampered in recent years by various geopolitical factors, including political uncertainty resulting from the change in administration in the US in 2016 and the rise of populist movements in Europe. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 7

Editor John Riches

RMW Law LLP

The overriding theme of the last 12 months is that of continuing regulatory change in the private wealth arena. A sense of increasing pace and convergence in particular stand out in comparison with earlier years. The pace component is best seen in the introduction of new regimes or the updating of existing rules. The theme of convergence is based upon how centrally significant the concept of ‘beneficial ownership’ is becoming to many of the initiatives. A third strand is an increasing divergence between the European Union and the United States in this arena: the European Union continues to force the pace on transparency, while the United States proceeds at a much more leisurely speed and gives greater weight to privacy concerns than its European neighbours.

The Banking Litigation Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Christa Band

Linklaters LLP

As we noted in the Preface to last year’s edition of the Banking Litigation Law Review, banks will always be regular litigants – generally as defendants – and this year’s contribution of jurisdiction-specific chapters explains how and why.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 11

Editor Christopher Mallon

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

The global economic upswing, which began in 2016, continues to strengthen with global GDP growth reaching 3.9 per cent in the second quarter of 2018 and expected to increase further in the second half of 2018. World trade growth accelerated by 4.7 per cent in 2017, following trade growth of only 1.8 per cent in 2016. This is largely driven by cyclical improvements and an increase in investment growth in developed economies.

The Lending and Secured Finance ReviewEdition 4

Editor Azadeh Nassiri

Slaughter and May

This fourth edition of The Lending and Secured Finance Review contains contributions from leading practitioners in 25 different countries, and I 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 Transfer Pricing Law ReviewEdition 2

Editors Steve Edge and Dominic Robertson

Slaughter and May

Transfer pricing rules are, of course, a central plank in governments' fight against profit shifting, and the application and evolution of these rules will (rightly) continue to be high up the corporate tax agenda for many years to come.

The Financial Technology Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Thomas A Frick

Niederer Kraft Frey AG

This first edition of The Financial Technology Law Review is published at a time when most players in the finance sector are concerned about the new developments that information technology (IT), big data and artificial intelligence (AI). Hence, it is often forgotten that the use of IT in the finance sector is not new and that many applications that would come under fintech are already quite old, at least by today’s standards.

The Banking Regulation ReviewEdition 9

Editor Jan Putnis

Slaughter and May

Banking regulation is a never-ending quest to balance the three major policy objectives of financial stability, consumer protection and the needs of developed economies for reliable services involving the provision and intermediation of finance. It is safe to say that the relative importance of these factors to policymakers will never be constant.

The Transport Finance Law ReviewEdition 4

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 Consumer Finance Law ReviewEdition 2

Editors Richard Fischer, Obrea Poindexter and Jeremy Mandell

Morrison & Foerster

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.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 7

Editor Jeffrey Golden

P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation

The International Capital Markets Review addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a comparative law reference source. Globalisation and technological change mean that the transactional practice of a capital markets lawyer, wherever based, no longer enjoys the luxury, if ever it did, of focusing solely at home within the confines of a single jurisdiction.

The Islamic Finance and Markets ReviewEdition 2

Editors John Dewar and Munib Hussain

Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP

The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review describes 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 Insolvency ReviewEdition 5

Editor Donald S Bernstein

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

This is the fifth edition of The Insolvency Review. Once again this volume offers an in-depth review of market conditions and insolvency case developments in key countries around the world.

The Foreign Investment Regulation ReviewEdition 6

Editor Calvin S Goldman QC

Goodmans LLP

Foreign investment continues to garner a great deal of attention. This trend is expected to continue as the global economy further integrates, the number of cross-border and international transactions keeps increasing, and national governments continue to regulate foreign investment in their jurisdictions to an unprecedented degree. This sixth edition of The Foreign Investment Regulation Review provides a comprehensive guide to laws, regulations, policies and practices governing foreign investment in key international jurisdictions.

The Healthcare Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Sarah Ellson

Fieldfisher LLP

Welcome to the second edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Japan, Korea and Finland. These new chapters, together with updates to the jurisdictions previously covered in the first edition, only serve to emphasise that this is a constantly changing environment. While hugely diverse, it is possible to discern common challenges and similar approaches in very different countries.

The Merger Control ReviewEdition 9

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Pre-merger competition review has advanced significantly since its creation in 1976 in the United States. 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.

The Dominance and Monopolies ReviewEdition 6

Editors Maurits Dolmans and Henry Mostyn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

In last year’s edition of The Dominance and Monopolies Review, we noted that abuse of dominance rules appeared to be entering a phase of more rapid development. The sixth edition of The Dominance and Monopolies Review seeks to navigate these choppy waters. As with previous years, each chapter summarises the abuse of dominance rules in a jurisdiction, provides a review of the regime’s enforcement activity in the past year, and offers a prediction regarding future developments.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 8

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

In the United States, it is a rare day when newspaper headlines do not announce criminal or regulatory investigations or prosecutions of major financial institutions and other corporations. Foreign corruption. Healthcare, consumer and environmental fraud. Tax evasion. Price fixing. Manipulation of benchmark interest rates and foreign exchange trading. Export controls and other trade sanctions.

The Intellectual Property and Antitrust ReviewEdition 3

Editor Thomas Vinje

Clifford Chance LLP

Intellectual property is taking a more and more central position in the global economy, and this is true not only in highly developed economies, but also in emerging ones. China and India, to take just two examples, are moving rapidly up the value chain and now have world-class technology companies for which intellectual property protection is crucial.

The Professional Negligence Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Nicholas Bird

Reynolds Porter Chamberlain

This first edition of The Professional Negligence Law Review comes at a time of unusual political challenge to some elements of globalisation. Yet international trade and cross-border transactions are, and will remain, firmly entrenched in the day-to-day business of commercial institutions, and the fact that this is the 54th title published by The Law Reviews comes as little surprise. The insight that each title provides into the major commercial jurisdictions is invaluable to all those conducting and advising on modern commerce in specific areas.

The Government Procurement ReviewEdition 6

Editors Jonathan Davey and Amy Gatenby

Addleshaw Goddard LLP

Government contracts, which are of considerable value and importance, often account for 10 to 20 per cent of gross domestic product in any given state, and government spending is often high profile, with the capacity to shape the future lives of local residents.

The Product Regulation and Liability ReviewEdition 5

Editors Chilton Davis Varner and Madison Kitchens

A basic familiarity with international product liability is essential to doing business in this environment. An understanding of the international framework will provide thoughtful manufacturers and distributors with a strategic advantage in this increasingly competitive area.

The Public Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 10

Editor Aidan Synnott

Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

In the reports from around the world collected in this volume, we continue to see a good deal of international overlap among the issues and industries attracting government enforcement attention. We also see evolution and refinement of approaches to competition law enforcement in 26 jurisdictions around the world.

The Private Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 11

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

The Cartels and Leniency ReviewEdition 6

Editors

Editor John Buretta

Cravath Swaine & Moore LLP

Editor John Terzaken

The Environment and Climate Change Law ReviewEdition 2

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.

The Asset Management ReviewEdition 7

Editor Paul Dickson

Slaughter and May

While the global financial crisis of 2007 and 2008 may feel like an increasingly distant memory, its effects continue to be felt across the whole of the financial world. Despite significant improvements in the global economic landscape in the intervening years, global growth has been hampered in recent years by various geopolitical factors, including political uncertainty resulting from the change in administration in the US in 2016 and the rise of populist movements in Europe. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

The Mergers & Acquisitions ReviewEdition 12

Editor Mark Zerdin

Slaughter and May

Despite a slight decrease in overall activity compared with 2016, 2017 was a strong year for global M&A activity as, for the fourth consecutive year, global deal-making activity exceeded US$3 trillion with announced transaction volumes reaching US$3.7 trillion. Even though 2017 did not replicate the record-breaking number of mega-deals in 2015 nor the high volume seen in 2016, market participants in a number of sectors took advantage of continued access to cheap capital globally to engage in M&A activity.

The Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewEdition 3

Editor Francis J Aquila

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Over the years since the financial crisis, shareholder activism has been on the rise around the world. As both shareholder activists, and the companies they target, 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 Real Estate M&A and Private Equity ReviewEdition 3

Editors Adam O Emmerich and Robin Panovka

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

This publication is a multinational guide for understanding and navigating the increasingly complex and dynamic world of liquid real estate and the transactions that mostly produce it. The sea change in the markets, sometimes called the ‘REIT Revolution’, has meant that major real estate transactions have migrated from ‘Main Street’ to ‘Wall Street’. They now often take the form of mergers, acquisitions, takeovers, spin-offs and other corporate transactions conducted in the public markets for both equity and debt.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 11

Editor Christopher Mallon

The Private Equity ReviewEdition 7

Editor Stephen L Ritchie

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

The seventh edition of The Private Equity Review follows a turbulent and at times nerve-wracking 2017. It was also a year in which private equity demonstrated its strength as an asset class in spite – perhaps because – of that turbulence. Deal activity and fundraising were strong in almost every major market despite fierce competition from public strategic buyers and strong returns in other asset classes.

The Corporate Governance ReviewEdition 8

Editor Willem J L Calkoen

NautaDutilh

In this eighth 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.

The Employment Law ReviewEdition 9

Editor Erika C Collins

Proskauer Rose LLP

As the various editions of this book have highlighted, changes to the laws of many jurisdictions over the past several years emphasise why we continue to consolidate and review this text to provide readers with an up-to-date reference guide.

The Insolvency ReviewEdition 5

Editor Donald S Bernstein

Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

This is the fifth edition of The Insolvency Review. Once again this volume offers an in-depth review of market conditions and insolvency case developments in key countries around the world.

The Merger Control ReviewEdition 9

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Pre-merger competition review has advanced significantly since its creation in 1976 in the United States. 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.

The Mergers & Acquisitions ReviewEdition 12

Editor Mark Zerdin

Slaughter and May

Despite a slight decrease in overall activity compared with 2016, 2017 was a strong year for global M&A activity as, for the fourth consecutive year, global deal-making activity exceeded US$3 trillion with announced transaction volumes reaching US$3.7 trillion. Even though 2017 did not replicate the record-breaking number of mega-deals in 2015 nor the high volume seen in 2016, market participants in a number of sectors took advantage of continued access to cheap capital globally to engage in M&A activity.

The Private Equity ReviewEdition 7

Editor Stephen L Ritchie

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

The seventh edition of The Private Equity Review follows a turbulent and at times nerve-wracking 2017. It was also a year in which private equity demonstrated its strength as an asset class in spite – perhaps because – of that turbulence. Deal activity and fundraising were strong in almost every major market despite fierce competition from public strategic buyers and strong returns in other asset classes.

The Product Regulation and Liability ReviewEdition 5

Editors Chilton Davis Varner and Madison Kitchens

King & Spalding LLP

In today’s global economy, product manufacturers and distributors face a dizzying array of overlapping and sometimes contradictory laws and regulations around the world.

An understanding of the international framework will provide thoughtful manufacturers and distributors with a strategic advantage in this increasingly competitive area.

The Real Estate M&A and Private Equity ReviewEdition 3

Editors Adam O Emmerich and Robin Panovka

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

This publication is a multinational guide for understanding and navigating the increasingly complex and dynamic world of liquid real estate and the transactions that mostly produce it. The sea change in the markets, sometimes called the ‘REIT Revolution’, has meant that major real estate transactions have migrated from ‘Main Street’ to ‘Wall Street’. They now often take the form of mergers, acquisitions, takeovers, spin-offs and other corporate transactions conducted in the public markets for both equity and debt.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 11

Editor Christopher Mallon

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

The global economic upswing, which began in 2016, continues to strengthen with global GDP growth reaching 3.9 per cent in the second quarter of 2018 and expected to increase further in the second half of 2018. World trade growth accelerated by 4.7 per cent in 2017, following trade growth of only 1.8 per cent in 2016. This is largely driven by cyclical improvements and an increase in investment growth in developed economies.

The Securities Litigation ReviewEdition 4

Editor William Savitt

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

This fourth edition of 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.

The Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewEdition 3

Editor Francis J Aquila

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Over the years since the financial crisis, shareholder activism has been on the rise around the world. As both shareholder activists, and the companies they target, 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 International Arbitration ReviewEdition 9

Editor James H. Carter

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr

International arbitration is a fast-moving express train, with new awards and court decisions of significance somewhere in the world rushing past every week. Legislatures, too, constantly tinker with or entirely revamp arbitration statutes in one jurisdiction or another.

The Professional Negligence Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Nicholas Bird

Reynolds Porter Chamberlain

This first edition of The Professional Negligence Law Review comes at a time of unusual political challenge to some elements of globalisation. Yet international trade and cross-border transactions are, and will remain, firmly entrenched in the day-to-day business of commercial institutions, and the fact that this is the 54th title published by The Law Reviews comes as little surprise. The insight that each title provides into the major commercial jurisdictions is invaluable to all those conducting and advising on modern commerce in specific areas.

The Investment Treaty Arbitration ReviewEdition 3

Editor Bart Legum

Dentons Europe LLP

The past year has confirmed the usefulness of The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review’s contribution to its field. The biggest challenge for practitioners and clients over the past year has been to keep up with the flow of new developments and jurisprudence in the field. There was a significant increase in the number of investment treaty arbitrations registered in the first years of this decade. These cases have come or are now coming to their conclusions.

The Class Actions Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Richard Swallow

Slaughter and May

Class actions and major group litigation can be a seismic event not only for large commercial entities but for whole industries. Their reach and impact mean they are one of the few types of claim that have become truly global in both importance and scope. This book covers the most important developments in class actions in 20 jurisdictions around the world.

The Tax Disputes and Litigation ReviewEdition 6

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 sixth edition, we have continued to add to the key jurisdictions where disputes are likely to occur for multinational businesses.

The Labour and Employment Disputes ReviewEdition 1

Editor Nicholas R Robertson

Mayer Brown International LLP

Over the last 15 years, that position has changed as business has become increasingly international, with operations spanning many countries, and often with supply chains spanning yet more countries. As this process developed, employers structured themselves internationally, so that legal and HR teams, among others, are set up to be able to deal with a globally mobile workforce.

The Private Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 11

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Private competition litigation can be an important complement to public enforcement in the achievement of compliance with the competition laws. For example, antitrust litigation has been a key component of the antitrust regime for decades in the United States.

The Dispute Resolution ReviewEdition 10

Editor Damian Taylor

Slaughter and May

The Dispute Resolution Review provides an indispensable overview of the civil court systems of 37 jurisdictions. It offers a guide to those who are faced with disputes that frequently cross international boundaries.

The Sports Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor András A Gurovits

Niederer Kraft Frey AG

The Sports Law Review recognises that sports law is not a single legal topic, but rather a field of law that is related to a wide variety of legal areas, such as contract, corporate, intellectual property, civil procedure, arbitration and criminal law.

The Patent Litigation Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

Although patent litigators should always be mindful that patent litigation has, with some justification, been called the ‘pathology of the patent system’, not so much as a criticism, but more in recognition of how remarkably little patent litigation there is in fact when seen in relation to the number of patents in force at any one time, patent litigation is also the anvil on which patent law is forged.

Vinson & Elkins LLP

With the industry enduring a third straight year of low oil prices, and with no prospects for a significant increase in sight, participants in the industry have been forced to adapt. Oil companies must continue to be disciplined, allocating scarce capital only to their best prospects, and shelving less promising projects for future years.

The Aviation Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Sean Gates

Gates Aviation LLP

The sixth edition of The Aviation Law Review marks the continuation of one of The Law Reviews’ most successful publications. In the year since the last review was published, there have been some significant developments with regard to international air carrier liability, with both Russia and Thailand acceding to the Montreal Convention on air carrier liability of 1999 alongside Chad, Indonesia, Mauritius, Sudan and Uganda. Inevitably, the European aviation legal scene continues to be dominated by Brexit where reassuring words, at least by regulators in the UK, have yet to be capped by any positive developments in terms of final agreements.

Welcome to the second edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Japan, Korea and Finland.

The Asset Tracing and Recovery ReviewEdition 6

Editor Robert Hunter

Edmonds Marshall McMahon Ltd

‘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. But these difficulties aside, the problems that fraud generates pose unique challenges for the legal system of any country. This guide contains contributions from eminent practitioners the world over, who have, on the basis of their experience, set out what they regard as critical within their own jurisdictions.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 8

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

In the United States, it is a rare day when newspaper headlines do not announce criminal or regulatory investigations or prosecutions of major financial institutions and other corporations.

Export controls and other trade sanctions.

The Class Actions Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Richard Swallow

Slaughter and May

The Intellectual Property and Antitrust ReviewEdition 3

Editor Thomas Vinje

Clifford Chance LLP

Intellectual property is taking a more and more central position in the global economy, and this is true not only in highly developed economies, but also in emerging ones.

The Financial Technology Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Thomas A Frick

Niederer Kraft Frey AG

This first edition of The Financial Technology Law Review is published at a time when most players in the finance sector are concerned about the new developments that information technology (IT), big data and artificial intelligence (AI). Hence, it is often forgotten that the use of IT in the finance sector is not new and that many applications that would come under fintech are already quite old, at least by today’s standards.

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

Although patent litigators should always be mindful that patent litigation has, with some justification, been called the ‘pathology of the patent system’, not so much as a criticism, but more in recognition of how remarkably little patent litigation there is in fact when seen in relation to the number of patents in force at any one time, patent litigation is also the anvil on which patent law is forged.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 7

Editor John Riches

RMW Law LLP

The overriding theme of the last 12 months is that of continuing regulatory change in the private wealth arena. A sense of increasing pace and convergence in particular stand out in comparison with earlier years. The pace component is best seen in the introduction of new regimes or the updating of existing rules. The theme of convergence is based upon how centrally significant the concept of ‘beneficial ownership’ is becoming to many of the initiatives. A third strand is an increasing divergence between the European Union and the United States in this arena: the European Union continues to force the pace on transparency, while the United States proceeds at a much more leisurely speed and gives greater weight to privacy concerns than its European neighbours.

The Gambling Law ReviewEdition 3

Editor Carl Rohsler

Gambling law is an apt topic for such an analysis for a number of reasons. First, compared with some legal disciplines (such as financial regulation, digital copyright, competition or telecoms law) gambling has a very long history and deep roots in human culture and legislation.

Mayer Brown International LLP

Over the last 15 years, that position has changed as business has become increasingly international, with operations spanning many countries, and often with supply chains spanning yet more countries.

The drive towards greater tax transparency has continued in 2017. The trend is driven by pressure on tax authorities to raise more revenue and increasing public disquiet about the well-publicised practices of some large multinationals and wealthy individuals, who apparently pay a disproportionately small sum in tax compared to the man in the street.

The past year has confirmed the usefulness of The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review’s contribution to its field.

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 Asset Management ReviewEdition 7

Editor Paul Dickson

Slaughter and May

While the global financial crisis of 2007 and 2008 may feel like an increasingly distant memory, its effects continue to be felt across the whole of the financial world. Despite significant improvements in the global economic landscape in the intervening years, global growth has been hampered in recent years by various geopolitical factors, including political uncertainty resulting from the change in administration in the US in 2016 and the rise of populist movements in Europe. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

Despite a slight decrease in overall activity compared with 2016, 2017 was a strong year for global M&A activity as, for the fourth consecutive year, global deal-making activity exceeded US$3 trillion with announced transaction volumes reaching US$3.7 trillion. Even though 2017 did not replicate the record-breaking number of mega-deals in 2015 nor the high volume seen in 2016, market participants in a number of sectors took advantage of continued access to cheap capital globally to engage in M&A activity.

The Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewEdition 3

Editor Francis J Aquila

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Over the years since the financial crisis, shareholder activism has been on the rise around the world. As both shareholder activists, and the companies they target, 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 International Trade Law ReviewEdition 4

Editors Folkert Graafsma, Joris Cornelis and Drew Sundberg

VVGB Advocaten

It has been said that ‘smooth seas don’t produce skilful sailors’. And indeed, stakeholders tasked with navigating the treacherous waters of international trade have, over the past year, certainly needed to find their sea legs like at few other times in recent memory.

The Real Estate M&A and Private Equity ReviewEdition 3

Editors Adam O Emmerich and Robin Panovka

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

This publication is a multinational guide for understanding and navigating the increasingly complex and dynamic world of liquid real estate and the transactions that mostly produce it. The sea change in the markets, sometimes called the ‘REIT Revolution’, has meant that major real estate transactions have migrated from ‘Main Street’ to ‘Wall Street’. They now often take the form of mergers, acquisitions, takeovers, spin-offs and other corporate transactions conducted in the public markets for both equity and debt.

The Healthcare Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Sarah Ellson

Fieldfisher LLP

Welcome to the second edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Japan, Korea and Finland.

While hugely diverse, it is possible to discern common challenges and similar approaches in very different countries.

The Aviation Law ReviewEdition 6

Editor Sean Gates

Gates Aviation LLP

The sixth edition of The Aviation Law Review marks the continuation of one of The Law Reviews’ most successful publications. In the year since the last review was published, there have been some significant developments with regard to international air carrier liability, with both Russia and Thailand acceding to the Montreal Convention on air carrier liability of 1999 alongside Chad, Indonesia, Mauritius, Sudan and Uganda. Inevitably, the European aviation legal scene continues to be dominated by Brexit where reassuring words, at least by regulators in the UK, have yet to be capped by any positive developments in terms of final agreements.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 11

Editor Christopher Mallon

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

The global economic upswing, which began in 2016, continues to strengthen with global GDP growth reaching 3.9 per cent in the second quarter of 2018 and expected to increase further in the second half of 2018. World trade growth accelerated by 4.7 per cent in 2017, following trade growth of only 1.8 per cent in 2016. This is largely driven by cyclical improvements and an increase in investment growth in developed economies.

The Banking Litigation Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Christa Band

The Merger Control ReviewEdition 9

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Pre-merger competition review has advanced significantly since its creation in 1976 in the United States.

The Transfer Pricing Law ReviewEdition 2

Editors Steve Edge and Dominic Robertson

The Dominance and Monopolies ReviewEdition 6

Editors Maurits Dolmans and Henry Mostyn

Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

In last year’s edition of The Dominance and Monopolies Review, we noted that abuse of dominance rules appeared to be entering a phase of more rapid development.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 8

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

In the United States, it is a rare day when newspaper headlines do not announce criminal or regulatory investigations or prosecutions of major financial institutions and other corporations. Foreign corruption. Healthcare, consumer and environmental fraud. Tax evasion. Price fixing. Manipulation of benchmark interest rates and foreign exchange trading. Export controls and other trade sanctions.

The Intellectual Property and Antitrust ReviewEdition 3

Editor Thomas Vinje

Clifford Chance LLP

Intellectual property is taking a more and more central position in the global economy, and this is true not only in highly developed economies, but also in emerging ones.

The Professional Negligence Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Nicholas Bird

Reynolds Porter Chamberlain

This first edition of The Professional Negligence Law Review comes at a time of unusual political challenge to some elements of globalisation. Yet international trade and cross-border transactions are, and will remain, firmly entrenched in the day-to-day business of commercial institutions, and the fact that this is the 54th title published by The Law Reviews comes as little surprise. The insight that each title provides into the major commercial jurisdictions is invaluable to all those conducting and advising on modern commerce in specific areas.

The Financial Technology Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Thomas A Frick

Niederer Kraft Frey AG

This first edition of The Financial Technology Law Review is published at a time when most players in the finance sector are concerned about the new developments that information technology (IT), big data and artificial intelligence (AI). Hence, it is often forgotten that the use of IT in the finance sector is not new and that many applications that would come under fintech are already quite old, at least by today’s standards.

The Government Procurement ReviewEdition 6

Editors Jonathan Davey and Amy Gatenby

Addleshaw Goddard LLP

The Banking Regulation ReviewEdition 9

Editor Jan Putnis

Slaughter and May

Banking regulation is a never-ending quest to balance the three major policy objectives of financial stability, consumer protection and the needs of developed economies for reliable services involving the provision and intermediation of finance. It is safe to say that the relative importance of these factors to policymakers will never be constant.

The Investment Treaty Arbitration ReviewEdition 3

Editor Bart Legum

Dentons Europe LLP

The past year has confirmed the usefulness of The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review’s contribution to its field. The biggest challenge for practitioners and clients over the past year has been to keep up with the flow of new developments and jurisprudence in the field. There was a significant increase in the number of investment treaty arbitrations registered in the first years of this decade. These cases have come or are now coming to their conclusions.

The Insurance and Reinsurance Law ReviewEdition 6

The Private Equity ReviewEdition 7

Editor Stephen L Ritchie

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

The seventh edition of The Private Equity Review follows a turbulent and at times nerve-wracking 2017. It was also a year in which private equity demonstrated its strength as an asset class in spite – perhaps because – of that turbulence. Deal activity and fundraising were strong in almost every major market despite fierce competition from public strategic buyers and strong returns in other asset classes.

The Corporate Governance ReviewEdition 8

Editor Willem J L Calkoen

NautaDutilh

In this eighth 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.

The Class Actions Law ReviewEdition 2

Editor Nicholas R Robertson

Mayer Brown International LLP

Over the last 15 years, that position has changed as business has become increasingly international, with operations spanning many countries, and often with supply chains spanning yet more countries. As this process developed, employers structured themselves internationally, so that legal and HR teams, among others, are set up to be able to deal with a globally mobile workforce.

The Employment Law ReviewEdition 9

Editor Erika C Collins

Proskauer Rose LLP

The Private Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 11

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Editors

Editor John Buretta

Cravath Swaine & Moore LLP

The Inward Investment and International Taxation ReviewEdition 8

Editor Tim Sanders

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

The drive towards greater tax transparency has continued in 2017.

The Third Party Litigation Funding Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Leslie Perrin

Calunius Capital LLP

The essence of TPF is the deployment of legal capital to fund the realisation of assets that are contingent on the resolution of some form of legal process. If the assets are sufficiently attractive, other things besides (or instead of ) legal costs can be funded, including corporate expenses.

Editor Jonathan Clegg

The Oil and Gas Law ReviewEdition 5

Editor Christopher Strong

Vinson & Elkins LLP

With the industry enduring a third straight year of low oil prices, and with no prospects for a significant increase in sight, participants in the industry have been forced to adapt. Oil companies must continue to be disciplined, allocating scarce capital only to their best prospects, and shelving less promising projects for future years.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 7

Editor Jeffrey Golden

P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation

The International Capital Markets Review addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a comparative law reference source.

The Patent Litigation Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

Although patent litigators should always be mindful that patent litigation has, with some justification, been called the ‘pathology of the patent system’, not so much as a criticism, but more in recognition of how remarkably little patent litigation there is in fact when seen in relation to the number of patents in force at any one time, patent litigation is also the anvil on which patent law is forged.

The Islamic Finance and Markets ReviewEdition 2

Editors John Dewar and Munib Hussain

Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP

The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review describes the manner in which Islamic, or shariah-compliant, finance is practised in various jurisdictions throughout the world.

The Asset Management ReviewEdition 7

Editor Paul Dickson

Slaughter and May

While the global financial crisis of 2007 and 2008 may feel like an increasingly distant memory, its effects continue to be felt across the whole of the financial world. Despite significant improvements in the global economic landscape in the intervening years, global growth has been hampered in recent years by various geopolitical factors, including political uncertainty resulting from the change in administration in the US in 2016 and the rise of populist movements in Europe. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

The Asset Tracing and Recovery ReviewEdition 6

Editor Robert Hunter

Edmonds Marshall McMahon Ltd

‘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. But these difficulties aside, the problems that fraud generates pose unique challenges for the legal system of any country. This guide contains contributions from eminent practitioners the world over, who have, on the basis of their experience, set out what they regard as critical within their own jurisdictions.

International arbitration is a fast-moving express train, with new awards and court decisions of significance somewhere in the world rushing past every week. Legislatures, too, constantly tinker with or entirely revamp arbitration statutes in one jurisdiction or another.

The International Capital Markets ReviewEdition 7

Editor Jeffrey Golden

P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation

The International Capital Markets Review addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a comparative law reference source. Globalisation and technological change mean that the transactional practice of a capital markets lawyer, wherever based, no longer enjoys the luxury, if ever it did, of focusing solely at home within the confines of a single jurisdiction.

The International Investigations ReviewEdition 8

Editor Nicolas Bourtin

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

In the United States, it is a rare day when newspaper headlines do not announce criminal or regulatory investigations or prosecutions of major financial institutions and other corporations. Foreign corruption. Healthcare, consumer and environmental fraud. Tax evasion. Price fixing. Manipulation of benchmark interest rates and foreign exchange trading. Export controls and other trade sanctions.

The International Trade Law ReviewEdition 4

Editors Folkert Graafsma, Joris Cornelis and Drew Sundberg

VVGB Advocaten

It has been said that ‘smooth seas don’t produce skilful sailors’. And indeed, stakeholders tasked with navigating the treacherous waters of international trade have, over the past year, certainly needed to find their sea legs like at few other times in recent memory.

The Investment Treaty Arbitration ReviewEdition 3

Editor Bart Legum

Dentons Europe LLP

The past year has confirmed the usefulness of The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review’s contribution to its field. The biggest challenge for practitioners and clients over the past year has been to keep up with the flow of new developments and jurisprudence in the field. There was a significant increase in the number of investment treaty arbitrations registered in the first years of this decade. These cases have come or are now coming to their conclusions.

The Inward Investment and International Taxation ReviewEdition 8

Editor Tim Sanders

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

The drive towards greater tax transparency has continued in 2017. The trend is driven by pressure on tax authorities to raise more revenue and increasing public disquiet about the well-publicised practices of some large multinationals and wealthy individuals, who apparently pay a disproportionately small sum in tax compared to the man in the street.

The Islamic Finance and Markets ReviewEdition 2

Editors John Dewar and Munib Hussain

Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP

The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review describes 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 1

Editor Nicholas R Robertson

Mayer Brown International LLP

Over the last 15 years, that position has changed as business has become increasingly international, with operations spanning many countries, and often with supply chains spanning yet more countries. As this process developed, employers structured themselves internationally, so that legal and HR teams, among others, are set up to be able to deal with a globally mobile workforce.

The Lending and Secured Finance ReviewEdition 4

Editor Azadeh Nassiri

Slaughter and May

This fourth edition of The Lending and Secured Finance Review contains contributions from leading practitioners in 25 different countries, and I 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 Merger Control ReviewEdition 9

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Pre-merger competition review has advanced significantly since its creation in 1976 in the United States. 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.

The Mergers & Acquisitions ReviewEdition 12

Editor Mark Zerdin

Slaughter and May

Despite a slight decrease in overall activity compared with 2016, 2017 was a strong year for global M&A activity as, for the fourth consecutive year, global deal-making activity exceeded US$3 trillion with announced transaction volumes reaching US$3.7 trillion. Even though 2017 did not replicate the record-breaking number of mega-deals in 2015 nor the high volume seen in 2016, market participants in a number of sectors took advantage of continued access to cheap capital globally to engage in M&A activity.

The Mining Law ReviewEdition 6

Stikeman Elliott LLP

The Mining Law Review is designed to be a practical, business-focused ‘year in review’ analysis of recent changes and developments, their effects and a look forward at expected trends.

The Oil and Gas Law ReviewEdition 5

Editor Christopher Strong

Vinson & Elkins LLP

With the industry enduring a third straight year of low oil prices, and with no prospects for a significant increase in sight, participants in the industry have been forced to adapt. Oil companies must continue to be disciplined, allocating scarce capital only to their best prospects, and shelving less promising projects for future years.

The Patent Litigation Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Trevor Cook

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

Although patent litigators should always be mindful that patent litigation has, with some justification, been called the ‘pathology of the patent system’, not so much as a criticism, but more in recognition of how remarkably little patent litigation there is in fact when seen in relation to the number of patents in force at any one time, patent litigation is also the anvil on which patent law is forged.

The Privacy, Data Protection and Cybersecurity Law ReviewEdition 4

Editor Alan Charles Raul

Sidley Austin LLP

The year ahead is likely to bring increased attention to connected devices, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, machine learning, big-data analytics and predictive algorithms.

The Private Competition Enforcement ReviewEdition 11

Editor Ilene Knable Gotts

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

Private competition litigation can be an important complement to public enforcement in the achievement of compliance with the competition laws. For example, antitrust litigation has been a key component of the antitrust regime for decades in the United States.

The Private Equity ReviewEdition 7

Editor Stephen L Ritchie

Kirkland & Ellis LLP

The seventh edition of The Private Equity Review follows a turbulent and at times nerve-wracking 2017. It was also a year in which private equity demonstrated its strength as an asset class in spite – perhaps because – of that turbulence. Deal activity and fundraising were strong in almost every major market despite fierce competition from public strategic buyers and strong returns in other asset classes.

The Private Wealth & Private Client ReviewEdition 7

Editor John Riches

RMW Law LLP

The overriding theme of the last 12 months is that of continuing regulatory change in the private wealth arena. A sense of increasing pace and convergence in particular stand out in comparison with earlier years. The pace component is best seen in the introduction of new regimes or the updating of existing rules. The theme of convergence is based upon how centrally significant the concept of ‘beneficial ownership’ is becoming to many of the initiatives. A third strand is an increasing divergence between the European Union and the United States in this arena: the European Union continues to force the pace on transparency, while the United States proceeds at a much more leisurely speed and gives greater weight to privacy concerns than its European neighbours.

The Product Regulation and Liability ReviewEdition 5

Editors Chilton Davis Varner and Madison Kitchens

King & Spalding LLP

In today’s global economy, product manufacturers and distributors face a dizzying array of overlapping and sometimes contradictory laws and regulations around the world. A basic familiarity with international product liability is essential to doing business in this environment. An understanding of the international framework will provide thoughtful manufacturers and distributors with a strategic advantage in this increasingly competitive area.

The Professional Negligence Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Nicholas Bird

Reynolds Porter Chamberlain

This first edition of The Professional Negligence Law Review comes at a time of unusual political challenge to some elements of globalisation. Yet international trade and cross-border transactions are, and will remain, firmly entrenched in the day-to-day business of commercial institutions, and the fact that this is the 54th title published by The Law Reviews comes as little surprise. The insight that each title provides into the major commercial jurisdictions is invaluable to all those conducting and advising on modern commerce in specific areas.

Editors Adam O Emmerich and Robin Panovka

Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

This publication is a multinational guide for understanding and navigating the increasingly complex and dynamic world of liquid real estate and the transactions that mostly produce it. The sea change in the markets, sometimes called the ‘REIT Revolution’, has meant that major real estate transactions have migrated from ‘Main Street’ to ‘Wall Street’. They now often take the form of mergers, acquisitions, takeovers, spin-offs and other corporate transactions conducted in the public markets for both equity and debt.

The Restructuring ReviewEdition 11

Editor Christopher Mallon

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP

The global economic upswing, which began in 2016, continues to strengthen with global GDP growth reaching 3.9 per cent in the second quarter of 2018 and expected to increase further in the second half of 2018. World trade growth accelerated by 4.7 per cent in 2017, following trade growth of only 1.8 per cent in 2016. This is largely driven by cyclical improvements and an increase in investment growth in developed economies.

The Shareholder Rights and Activism ReviewEdition 3

Editor Francis J Aquila

Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

Over the years since the financial crisis, shareholder activism has been on the rise around the world. As both shareholder activists, and the companies they target, 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.

Editor András A Gurovits

The Third Party Litigation Funding Law ReviewEdition 1

The Trademarks Law ReviewEdition 1

Editor Jonathan Clegg

Cleveland Scott York

The Transfer Pricing Law ReviewEdition 2

Editors Steve Edge and Dominic Robertson
