In our eighth year of writing and publishing The Energy Regulation and Markets Review, we have seen geopolitical changes that have added significant uncertainties to global energy policies.
International arbitration is a fast-moving express train. The international arbitration community has created other publications that follow these developments regularly. Scholarly arbitration literature follows behind, at a more leisurely pace. There is a niche to be filled by an analytical review of what has occurred in each of the important arbitration jurisdictions during the past year. This volume, to which leading arbitration practitioners around the world have made valuable contributions, seeks to fill that space.
There is no question that shareholder activism is a prominent, and likely permanent, feature of the corporate landscape. 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.
Welcome to the third edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review now provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Russia and South Africa in this edition. Our expert authors have also reviewed and updated their chapters to reflect the ever evolving situation in the jurisdictions covered in earlier editions. While a hugely diverse area of practice, it is possible to discern common challenges and similar approaches in very different countries.
To create this publication, we have invited leading practitioners from around the globe to offer practical insights into what is going on around the conference tables and in the markets in their jurisdiction, with an eye to cross-border trends and transactions. 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.
The Mining Law Review is designed to be a practical, business-focused ‘year in review’ analysis of recent changes, developments and their effects, and a look forward at expected trends. The first part of the book is divided into 19 chapters, each dealing with mining in a particular jurisdiction. The second part of the book has three chapters that focus on financing.
In the inaugural edition of this publication, we addressed various rules that set boundaries on what is permissible damages evidence. The focus in that publication was to survey the codified rules and common law principles underpinning the analysis and presentation of damages. In this, the second edition, we expand on that analysis with recent changes to the rules, and the authors also summarise noteworthy cases from the various jurisdictions.
The Patent Litigation Law Review does not only summarise patent litigation procedures. The respective contributors to it, as leading practitioners in each of their jurisdictions, also focus on recent developments in substantive patent law as demonstrated by the most important recent court decisions in their respective jurisdictions, meaning that this Review also provides insight into the current controversies that affect patent law generally.
This eighth edition presents the views and observations of leading anti-corruption practitioners in jurisdictions spanning the globe. Given the numerous recent changes in domestic legal regimes, and the uncertainty in international relations, this book and the wealth of learning that it contains from around the world, 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.
Whether you are a corporate counsel, a business executive, a private practitioner, or a government official, and whether you are facing litigation or arbitration of a commercial dispute, negotiating a contract with an eye toward minimising litigation risk, or simply interested in learning more about this important area of law as related by seasoned and savvy practitioners, we hope you will find this volume informative, instructive, and enjoyable.
It is hoped that this volume will prove to be a useful guide to the tax rules in the jurisdictions where clients conduct their businesses. Each chapter aims to provide topical and current insights from leading experts on the tax issues and opportunities in their respective jurisdictions. 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.

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.
In this 10th edition, we can see that corporate governance is becoming a more vital and all-encompassing topic with each year that passes. 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…

We hope you enjoy this sixth edition and that it serves as a definitive and comprehensive guide for topics related to PPPs.
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.
