Edition 7

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically altered all aspects of life. The acquisition and leverage finance industry has been no exception. M&A activity has slowed down, and hence the leverage financing activity as well. Having said that, there are clearly some defensive industries that have shown resilience to the present crisis (pharma, bio sanitary, food and TMT, for instance).

The Energy Regulation and Markets Review

Edition 10

The Energy Regulation and Markets Review offers an insightful survey of the key features of energy regulatory regimes worldwide, along with analysis of their impact on commercial practice. Focusing on the most consequential recent developments in the electricity, oil, natural gas and renewable energy sectors, the review covers (among many other things) the major licensing requirements, market access restrictions, distribution regulations and regulatory enforcement activities.

The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Review

Edition 11

This Review occupies a unique space in the literature on TMT issues. Rather than serving a traditional legal treatise, this publication aims to provide a practical, business-focused survey of law and policy in this arena, along with insights into how this legal and policy landscape continues to evolve from year to year. In the dynamic and ever-changing TMT sector, such perspective is vitally important. And the scope of this Review is global, now covering 20 jurisdictions.
