What Lies Ahead for Construction Law and Practice


Andrew Ness of Jones Day explores future challenges and trends in the construction sector and their potential impact on lawyers and their practices: "While major disputes still occur, they are fewer in number, and as a result the focus of construction practice has shifted somewhat. This is leading to significant changes in many construction law practices, as there is reduced need for fleets of associates to staff major litigation and arbitration matters, and more of a premium on senior lawyers."

Roundtable: Construction 2014

Who’s Who Legal brings together Rupert  Choat of Atkin Chambers, Jaime Gray of Navarro Sologuren Paredes Gray, Phillip Greenham of Minter Ellison, and Ben Cowling, Laura Warren, Mark Blanksby and David McElveney from Clyde & Co to discuss industry trends, volume and type of work, legal market changes and developments for the year ahead.

Construction Contracts and the State


Mark Roe and Gurmukh Riyat of Pinsent Masons look at the potential issues raised from construction contracts with states and state agencies and explore what steps contractors can take to protect themselves in the event that things go wrong: "A good rule of thumb for a contractor entering into a construction contract with a state entity is 'test it backwards'. This means looking at enforcement issues first, before signing the contract and certainly before beginning to spend money on arbitration or other court proceedings."

Israel's Miracle-Based Corporate Migration Policy


Liam Schwartz of Liam Schwartz & Associates takes an in-depth look Israel's migration policy: "While some initial steps are being taken to create a climate of greater openness to global employee mobility, it could still be some time before Israel has a proper inbound migration policy."

Belgium: Corporate Immigration: Current Status and Future Developments


Bernard Caris of Praetica examines Belgium's corporate immigration system and looks at potential future changes: "Belgium’s general immigration policy is quite liberal and of course heavily influenced by EU legislation on immigration matters. Specifically with regard to corporate immigration, it is also worth mentioning that Belgium has entered into several bilateral treaties regarding international employment and social security."
