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 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, illustrating in a comparative manner different alternatives for the establishment of investment platforms in Europe and investment vehicles at a local level. In particular, each chapter provides insights from leading experts on the tax considerations and investment opportunities based on the specific national legislation.
We are very pleased to present the fifth edition of The Public-Private Partnership Law Review. Notwithstanding the number of chapters in various publications in The Law Reviews series on topics involving public-private partnerships (PPPs) and private finance initiatives (in areas such as projects and construction, real estate, mergers, transfers of concessionaires’ corporate control, special purpose vehicles and government procurement), we identified the need for a deeper understanding of the specific issues related to this topic in different countries.
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 sixth 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.
It is our pleasure to introduce the seventh edition of The Government Procurement Review. Our geographic coverage this year remains impressive, covering 17 jurisdictions, including the European Union, and the continued political and economic significance of government procurement remains clear.
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.
This book is intended to provide the legal industry with a guide to transport finance today, in each of the key jurisdictions globally in which aircraft, rolling stock and ships are financed. Each contribution reflects the significance of the transport sector today, and the need for readily available funding for industries that underpin the global economy by transporting people and commodities around the world every day.
Real estate is increasingly viewed on a global basis and readers can only benefit from a general understanding of how individual jurisdictions operate within the global real estate market. This edition extends to 31 jurisdictions and each chapter provides an invaluable insight into key legal issues and market trends in the author’s jurisdiction and, together, they offer an up-to-date synopsis of the global real estate market. The Review seeks to identify distinctions in practice between the different jurisdictions by highlighting particular local issues.
