The Asset Management Review

Edition 9

This continues to be a period of change and uncertainty for the asset management industry, as funds and managers act to comply with regulatory developments and investor requirements, and adapt to the changing geopolitical landscape. The world of asset management is increasingly complex, but it is hoped that this edition of The Asset Management Review will be a useful and practical companion as we face the challenges and opportunities of the coming year.

The Banking Litigation Law Review

Edition 4

This year’s edition of The Banking Litigation Law Review demonstrates that litigation involving banks shows little sign of slowing and continues to evolve. Disputes that have arisen in the past year cover a broad spectrum, from claims by consumers against banks to claims by banks for the recovery of loans and the enforcement of guarantees. One of the major challenges of 2020 has, of course, been covid-19, and this year has demonstrated the resilience and flexibility of court systems around the world.

The Banking Regulation Review

Edition 11

This edition covers 37 countries and territories in addition to the chapters on international initiatives and the European Union. Banking regulation will have a critically important role to play in determining how and when banks can and must help their customers get through this difficult time, and financial regulators must play their part to help facilitate this. Like much else in the financial world, banking regulation will never be the same again and this crisis is likely to lead to new regulatory initiatives to help banks to support stricken economies and businesses.

The Class Actions Law Review

Edition 4

Class actions and major group litigation can be seismic events, not only for the parties involved, but also for whole industries and parts of society. That potential impact means they are one of the few types of claim that have become truly global in both importance and scope, as reflected in this fourth edition. As with previous editions of this review, this updated publication aims to provide practitioners and clients with a single overview handbook to which they can turn for the key procedures, developments and factors in play in a number of the world’s most important jurisdictions.

The Dispute Resolution Review

Edition 12

The Dispute Resolution Review provides an indispensable overview of the civil court systems of 32 jurisdictions. It offers a guide to those who are faced with disputes that frequently cross international boundaries. As is often the way in law, difficult and complex problems can be solved in a number of ways, and this edition demonstrates that there are many different ways to organise and operate a legal system successfully, as well as overcoming challenges that life and politics throws up along the way.

The Lending and Secured Finance Review

Edition 6

This sixth edition contains contributions from leading practitioners in 25 different countries. We would like to thank each of the contributors for taking the time to share their expertise on the developments in the corporate lending and secured finance markets in their respective jurisdictions, and on the challenges and opportunities facing market participants.

The Mergers & Acquisitions Review

Edition 14

While the last edition of The Mergers & Acquisitions Review highlighted some causes for optimism for growth in the M&A market, the resilience of companies has been severely tested in 2020 in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Political uncertainty and economic shifts have taken a back seat to the wide-reaching global effects of the pandemic, which are leaving many jurisdictions and sectors in dire straits.

The Real Estate Law Review

Edition 9

Investors and their advisers need to understand real estate assets in the context of the global investment market, and The Real Estate Law Review seeks to help its readers to do just that. This edition extends to 28 key jurisdictions around the world. Each chapter has been updated to highlight key developments and their effect on the relevant domestic market. Together, the chapters offer a helpful and accessible overview of the global real estate market.

The Transfer Pricing Law Review

Edition 4

This publication aims to give readers a high-level overview of the principal transfer pricing rules in each country covered in the Review. Each chapter summarises the country’s substantive transfer pricing rules, explains how a transfer pricing dispute is handled, from initial scrutiny through to litigation or settlement, and discusses the interaction between transfer pricing and other parts of the tax code (such as withholding taxes, customs duties, and attempts to prevent double taxation).
