Romania: Cybersecurity – Call for action for major companies in critical sectors

By Daniele Iàcona, Costin Sandu The first piece of EU-wide legislation on cybersecurity is expected to be transposed into Romanian law anytime now, bringing into play enhanced system security obligations for major companies in certain sectors, as well as fines of up to 5 % of non-compliant companies’ turnover.

Hungary: HCA publishes digital consumer protection strategy

Gloster, Dame Elizabeth – Hot 100

The move followed the introduction of new legislation that allowed lawyers to practise the law of their own country in other European states, to which Switzerland is a signatory, and the relaxation in […]

Guy Locke has had an astonishing year. The roll call of cases he and the insolvency and corporate recovery group have handled in 2004 offers a neat summary of nearly all the key work to have taken place in this field in the last year. That work includes the Drax restructuring, advising Ernst & Young […]

Frawley, Michael – Hot 100

Taylor Wessing’s managing partner Michael Frawley could be forgiven for feeling a touch jaded when he took on his new role in October last year. Frawley gave up his position as head of corporate restructuring and insolvency, head of the credit control committee and head of the dispute resolution department to take up the top […]

Owen, Gerallt – Hot 100

Eversheds hired Gerallt Owen last summer as part of a concerted push to build up its London regulatory practice.
