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 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.

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.

It will serve as a guidebook for practitioners as to how a selected range of legal topics is dealt with under various national laws.
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.
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.
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.
