The Aviation Law Review continues to be among The Law Reviews’ most successful publications. This year we welcome new contributions from France, South Korea and Spain, plus two new chapters concerning covid-19. 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, 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.
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 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.
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.
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 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 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.
