Updates on proportionality of costs in court proceedings

By Gwendoline Davies, Claire Acklam Anyone involved in the conduct of litigation will be aware that the ‘overriding objective’, at rule 1.1 (1) of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), requires cases to be dealt with “justly and at proportionate cost”. Unfortunately, the question of what is proportionate continues to cause confusion and dispute.  In this latest […]

Women on Boards – As they progress, businesses thrive

By Susana Almeida Lopes Women represent 50% of the working population and are as much or more educated and qualified as men are. However, the problem of gender diversity (or lack of it), especially in top positions in organisations, is a persistent societal problem, and there are (many) studies that, if concrete measures are not taken, […]

Events were marked by the merger of the Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris exchanges to create three-way exchange Euronext. Top Benelux firm Stibbe acted […]

In a land of plenty

The Singapore authorities have made a limited number of joint venture licences available; and although they eventually extended the number, only eight have yet been awarded. There are then a number of conditions that must be met once licences are granted. IT systems must be aligned and non-domestic firms are not permitted to practise litigation, […]

Feeling flush

Now Tulkinghorn is sure you all remember busy Clifford Chance banking star James Johnson, depicted in these pages just two weeks ago. He had the gall to call one of The Lawyer’s journalists and conduct a conversation while relieving himself. But it seems that this is just the tip of the iceberg. While most gentlemen […]

intelek

While Intelek might be a relatively new client for DLA, corporate partner Chris Rawstron knows the aerospace electronics group of old, since he acted for it for years in his previous role as a pre-merger Edge Ellison lawyer.
