We are pleased to introduce you to the very first edition of The Art Law Review. The field of art law has developed over many years to become a significant speciality in the law, as collectors, galleries, auction houses, museums and everyone else involved with art have
expanded their collections and businesses throughout the world. Besides involving billions of dollars in the trade, art law has become the means by which the diverse cultures of our societies are governed and encouraged to develop.
This book serves two purposes – one obvious, but the other possibly less so. Quite obviously, and one reason for its continuing popularity, the book addresses the comparative law aspect of our readers’ international capital markets (ICM) workload and equips them with a reference source. The second purpose this book aims to serve is to equip its readers to do a better job as practitioners at home. In other words, reading the summaries of foreign lawyers, who can describe relevant foreign laws and practices, is perfectly consistent with and helpful when interpreting and giving advice about one’s own law and practice.
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.
The Oil and Gas Law Review is intended to serve as a starting point for practitioners in gaining an understanding of the key legal requirements in the jurisdictions in which they may be advising clients on transactional and operational matters. Although not a substitute for detailed local law advice, the hope is that it will nevertheless serve as a reference guide and point users in the right direction when considering local legal issues.
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.

The second part of the book has three chapters that focus on financing.
It is impossible to introduce a global healthcare text in 2020 without reference to the covid-19 pandemic and first and foremost to pay tribute to the commitment shown by all working in the sector: the healthcare professionals, the organisational leaders, all staff working in health and social care environments, and the scientists and public health officials seeking to navigate nations through this crisis.
