More Details..

This book considers the liability of the multimodal transport operator, clearly setting out the current framework on multimodal transport and offering a contextual analysis the position under the key conventions. The book critically evaluates the effectiveness and feasibility of the existing or future rules on international multimodal transport through the existing case law of major jurisdictions such as the UK, and the US.

The book includes coverage of The United Nations Convention on International Multimodal Transport of Goods (1980), UNCTAD/ICC Rules for Multimodal Transport Documents, and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea (Rotterdam Rules). The book also addresses the current debate in the EU as to whether a regional legal instrument on multimodal transport should be enacted, and considers the implications of such a regional solution including potential conflict with the Rotterdam Rules. The book explores the drawbacks of the existing or future multimodal transport liability systems and provides possible solutions where there gaps exist in multimodal transport regimes.

This book will be suitable for students and scholars of maritime and commercial law, transport studies, as well as commercial/transport lawyers, claims managers, freight forwarders and underwriters.

More Details..

The Law and Economics approach to law dominates the intellectual discussion of nearly every doctrinal area of law in the United States and its influence is growing steadily throughout Europe, Asia, and South America. Numerous academics and practitioners are working in the field with a flow of uninterrupted scholarship that is unprecedented, as is its influence on the law.

Academically every major law school in the United States has a Law and Economics program and the emergence of similar programs on other continents continues to accelerate. Despite its phenomenal growth, the area is also the target of an ongoing critique by lawyers, philosophers, psychologists, social scientists, even economists since the late 1970s. While the critique did not seem to impede the development of the field, it certainly has helped it to become more sophisticated, inclusive, and mature. In this volume some of the leading scholars working in the field, as well as a number of those critical of Law and Economics, discuss the foundational issues from various perspectives: philosophical, moral, epistemological, methodological, psychological, political, legal, and social. 

The philosophical and methodological assumptions of the economic analysis of law are criticized and defended, alternatives are proposed, old and new applications are discussed.

The book is ideal for a main or supplementary textbook in courses and seminars on legal theory, philosophy of law, jurisprudence, and (of course) Law and Economics.

Patent Prosecution by David Boundy and Philip Furgang is an essential work that belongs on the desk of every attorney interested in obtaining the best patent possible for a client's business interests. With a highly practice-oriented approach that is both sophisticated and logical, the authors examine every aspect of patent prosecution, from the client's conception of the invention to application filing in the U.S. and foreign jurisdictions, negotiation with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) and patent issue and post-issue correction. Relevant statutes, rules and cases are discussed in relation to a particular task in the procedural flow. Patent Prosecution distils decades of high-level experience from two leading authorities on the subject, effectively giving readers access to a senior partner in the form of two comprehensive volumes.

More Details..

Currency fluctuation, currency wars and even potential currency collapse (the Euro, the Bitcoin) are all risks that commercial parties must consider and guard against.

This book gathers together in one volume all the information and advice practitioners are likely to need when advising on, advancing or defending claims involving a foreign currency element.

The determination of the proper currency (or currencies) of a claim often has a dramatic effect on the level of a court judgment or arbitration award that is ultimately obtained. It is, therefore, vital for practitioners to accurately assess claims which involve a foreign currency element.

The authors guide the reader through the legal principles governing how foreign currency claims are treated in English law. The book covers both the treatment of foreign currency in substantive law as well as such procedural matters as how to claim interest correctly on a foreign currency claim and how to plead, prove or disprove the applicability of a particular currency.

This book is an invaluable and essential resource for all lawyers involved in international commerce, but will be of particular interest to those engaged in international finance, commodity transactions, international shipping and transport, and the insurance of assets and liabilities abroad.

"Those who practise in this country need guidance in navigating the tricky waters that The Despina R unleashed. This excellent book provides that guidance."

The authors "have been uniquely well placed to meet the challenge of analysing what is a perplexing body of jurisprudence, and to suggest principled answers to currency issues that have not yet been the subject of judicial decision. They consider not merely claims in contract and tort, but every type of claim that might raise an issue in relation to a foreign currency."

The Rt Hon. The Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, KG, PC,

President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, 2009-2012

More Details..

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists committed the largest and deadliest terrorist attack in the United States of America. The response from the inter-national community, and in particular the US, was swift. President George Bush declared what has commonly been referred to as either the ‘War on Terror’ or the ‘Global War on Terror’ on September 20, 2001. Four days later, he instigated the ‘Financial War on Terrorism’. This book defines and identifies the so-called ‘Financial War on Terrorism’. It provides a critical review of the impact of counter-terrorist financing strategies enacted by both individual jurisdictions and international organisations.

Taking a comparative approach, the book highlights the levels of compliance in each selected jurisdiction and organisation with the requirements of the ‘Financial War on Terrorism’. The book analyses measures introduced by the United Nations, including the UN sanctions against terrorists and the operation of its anti-terrorist sanctions committees, and the Recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force. It also reviews the counter-terrorist financing measures of the European Union and the Council of Europe, paying particular attention to the Framework Decisions on Combating Terrorism, the Council Common Positions on Combating Terrorism and the EU Anti-Terrorism Sanctions Regime. The book goes on to review the measures put in place in the US following September 11, 2001.

Offering a much-needed legal analysis of the measures enacted under the ‘Financial War on Terrorism’, this book is a valuable resource for those researching in law, terrorism studies, criminal justice, and finance.

More Details..

Fiduciary Duties: Directors and Employees draws together in one volume the law relating to fiduciary duties in this context and analyses both its historical origins and its modern application by the Courts. Fiduciary duties have historically defied easy characterisation. This area of law as it relates to directors and employees is developing and complex. Directors and employees of companies acting out of self-interest have generated an increasing number of claims alleging breach of fiduciary duty. This book discusses in detail the law relating to the fiduciary duties owed by directors and employees to companies is complex and involves several overlapping areas of law. It is, however, a relatively commonplace cause of action; individuals in positions of trust within a company are often tempted to abuse their position in order to steal company secrets, set up in competition, and poach staff and customers. This new edition of Fiduciary Duties contains commentary on a number of new cases alongside further commentary and analysis on the developing jurisprudence in relation to the fiduciary duties of LLP members and joint ventures. In addition discussion is conducted regarding the Court of Appeal decisions relating to Bolkiah information barriers in an employment context, together with evaluation of the relevant Commonwealth jurisprudence as it bears upon issues also arising under English law. As a result this new edition of Fiduciary Duties: Directors and Employees is an essential research reference for anyone practicing in this area of the law

More Details..

Since the inception of the international investment law system, investment promotion and protection have been the raison d'tre of investment treaties and states have confined their policy space in order to attract foreign investment and protect their investors abroad. Languishing in relative obscurity until recently, the right to regulate has gradually come to the spotlight as a key component of negotiations on new generation investment agreements around the globe. States and regional organisations, including, notably, the European Union and the United States, have started to examine ways in which to safeguard their regulatory power and guide - and delimit - the interpretive power of arbitral tribunals, by reserving their right to pursue specific public policy objectives. The monograph explores the status quo of the right to regulate, in order to offer an appraisal and a reference tool for treatymakers, thus contributing to a better understanding of the concept and the broader discourse on how to enhance the investment law system's legitimacy.

More Details..

Whether you set up your own company, join a board from outside or reach director level via an internal promotion you will need to be aware of the legal implications that attach to your role as a company director. These are known as directors duties, some of which are codified in the Companies Act 2006. However, these codified duties are merely the tip of the legal iceberg of which directors have to be aware. There are numerous other duties ranging from maintaining proper accounts, making returns to the Registrar of Companies, and not trading the company after the point where an insolvent liquidation beckons. The book distils the rules into layman's language by looking at the role of the company director using a question and answer format such as: "I've just been appointed as a director, what legal formalities do I need to comply with?" or "I want to borrow 20,000 from my company to buy myself a new car. Can I do this and, if so, how?" Or I want to defer my dividend, how do I do this?

Many commentators, regulatory agencies and politicians have blamed the risky behaviour of both financial institutions and their actors for the collapse of the United States sub-prime mortgage market which in turn precipitated the global 'Credit Crunch'. This edited volume explores how financial crime played a significant role in the global economic crisis.

The volume features contributions from internationally renowned academic and practitioner experts in the field who pinpoint some of the most important facets of financial crime which have emerged over recent years. Key subjects include: the possibility of criminalising reckless risk-taking on the financial markets; the duty of banks to prevent money-laundering and corruption; the growth of the Shadow Banking System; and the manipulation of LIBOR by banks. The book illustrates the global nature of financial crime, and highlights the complex relationships between regulatory bodies, law enforcement agencies and private actors in the attempt to limit the harmful effect of white collar crime on the stability of the financial sector.

This book will be of great use and interest to scholars, practitioners and students within the field of financial crime, banking and finance law, and international political economy.
