In-house Q&A


Tim Clare, head of due diligence at  ENVIRON, speaks exclusively to Who's Who Legal about his role, recent developments in the environmental field and some of his experiences of working with solicitors in this discipline. "The lawyers who have impressed me the most have also been those who are really proactive, and not shy about speaking up and suggesting an innovative or unorthodox course of action if they think it’s in their client’s best interests."


Who’s Who Legal brings together Paul Davies of Latham & Watkins, Jeff Civins of Haynes and Boone and Jochem Spaans of Allen & Overy to discuss increasing sub-specialisation in this sector, regulatory developments, and changes in the legal market in their jurisdiction.

Product-Focused Environmental Controls in a Globalised World


Travers Smith, based in London, and Beveridge & Diamond, with its principal office in Washington, DC, have worked together over the past year on a host of international product-related environmental matters. Doug Bryden and Russell LaMotte give us their impressions of this blossoming area of environmental legal practice: "Overall, while the nexus between environmental and product work is rarely fêted by practitioners, it increasingly forms part of a well-balanced environmental practice aligned with clients’ present concerns."

Back to "MediAsian"


George Lim SC of Wee Tay & Lim takes an in-depth look at the history and development of mediation in Asia: "While arbitration currently appears an attractive way to resolve cross-border disputes, mediation is clearly a more timely and cost-efficient method of dispute resolution. In my view, it is only a matter of time before the international business community comes to the realisation that they should routinely attempt mediation before resorting to litigation or arbitration."


Who’s Who Legal brings together Rosemary Howell of Strategic Resolution, Kenneth Feinberg of Feinberg Rosen, Tim McFarlane of McFarlane Legal, Jonathan Lux of Stone Chambers, Patricia Barclay of Bonaccord Ecosse and Machteld Pel of Pel Mediation to discuss the types of disputes, increasing sophistication of users, the popularity of mediation, and changes in the market in their jurisdiction.

The Seven Principles of Guided Choice Dispute Resolution Processes


Paul Lurie of Schiff Hardin and Jeremy Lack of Jeremy Lack Esq analyse the key principles behind the Guided Choice process: "The Guided Choice process is about shortening the period to settlement and thus reducing the expense without compromising on quality, while allowing parties greater control over their expenses and the outcomes they can achieve."

More is Needed: The Irish Response to the 2008 Mediation Directive


Caroline Preston of Strategic Dispute Resolution explores the Irish response to the 2008 European Mediation Directive: "As with other European Union countries, there is a widely held view among practitioners here that the practice of mediation is set to grow exponentially, given the clear advantages that it has for the swift and cost-effective resolution of disputes."


Who’s Who Legal brings together Andrew Bodnar of Matrix Chambers, Bernd Klose of kkforensic Rechtsanwälte, Colette Wilkins of Walkers, Edward H Davis Jr of Astigarraga Davis, Stéphane Bonifassi of Lebray & Associés and Stephen Baker of Baker & Partners to discuss levels of work, the impact of technology on this area, changes to the legal market and future developments in their jurisdictions.
