The hotel sector has evolved. A lot. It is now a far cry from the coaching inn and the ‘Mom and Pop’ motel, and those who wish to own a hotel no longer have to be involved in its operation. There is no need to put a mint on the pillow, fill the ice buckets or even visit the property. If an investor so chooses, a hotel can remain a line on a balance sheet and no more. This apparent cut in complexity is not, however, reflected in the sector’s legal demands.
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 have structured this book with the intention of providing readers with an overview of these areas of law as they relate to the field of executive remuneration. The intended readership of this book includes both in-house and outside counsel who are involved in either the structuring of employment and compensation arrangements, or more general corporate governance matters.

This review provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 15 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Cambodia, Malta and Vietnam in this edition.
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. 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.
