While specific tax advice is always essential, it is also necessary to have a broad understanding of the nature of the potential issues and advantages that lie ahead; this book provides a guide to these.

We all realise that the modern corporation is one of the most ingenious concepts ever devised. Our lives are dominated by corporations. We eat and breathe through them, we travel with them, we are entertained by them, most of us work for them. Most corporations aim to add value to society, and they very often do. Some, however, are exploiting, polluting, poisoning and impoverishing us…

It is our pleasure to introduce the eighth edition of The Government Procurement Review. Our geographical coverage this year remains impressive, covering 15 jurisdictions, including the European Union, and the continued political and economic significance of government procurement remains clear.
The Securities Litigation Review is a guided introduction to the international varieties of enforcing rights related to the issuance and exchange of publicly traded securities. This review focuses on litigation – how rights are created and vindicated against the backdrop of courtroom proceedings. Accordingly, this volume amounts to a cross-cultural review of the disputing process. While the subject matter is limited to securities litigation, which may well be the world’s most economically significant form of litigation, any survey of litigation is in great part a survey of procedure as much as substance.
The Investment Treaty Arbitration Review fulfils an essential function. Updated every year, it provides a current perspective on a quickly evolving topic. Organised by topic rather than by jurisdiction, it allows readers to access rapidly not only the most recent developments on a given subject, but also the debate that led to and the context behind those developments. This fifth edition adds new topics to the Review, increasing its scope and utility to practitioners.
In our ninth year of writing and publishing this book the most pressing global concerns have revolved around the covid-19 pandemic. Accordingly, many of our contributing authors have emphasised concerns associated with the effects of the crisis on energy demand and consumption, and delays in the development of infrastructure. Beyond this crisis, we have seen many other significant geopolitical changes that have added uncertainties to global energy policies.

We hope this compilation of insight from our remarkable multinational authors produces clarity and transparency into this exciting world of ‘liquid real estate’ and helps to further fuel the growth of the sector.
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. 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.
As both shareholder activists and the companies they target have become more geographically diverse, it is increasingly important for legal and corporate practitioners to understand the legal framework and emerging trends of shareholder activism in the various international jurisdictions facing activism. The Shareholder Rights and Activism Review is designed as a primer on these aspects of shareholder activism in such jurisdictions.
The pharmaceutical business is truly one of the most global industries, with many companies operating in dozens of countries with differing legal regimes and healthcare systems. In certain respects, the rules governing industry activities have largely become harmonised. However, in other areas the legal frameworks differ. Our objective in framing this volume is to give practitioners in the field a one-volume introduction to critical issues in an array of jurisdictions.
This ninth edition presents the views and observations of leading anti-corruption practitioners in jurisdictions spanning the globe. Given the political turmoil and the global health crisis confronting us in the remainder of 2020 and into 2021, this book and the wealth of country-specific learning that it contains will help guide practitioners and their clients when navigating the perils of corruption in foreign and transnational business, and in related internal and government investigations.
