Judicial Blockbuster | Coffey Graham LLP
I heard a barrister on the radio a few days ago, describing how isolated a judge can feel – especially with the risk of having one’s judgment overturned by the Court of Appeal. Well, Mr Justice Ramsey must  have been feeling rather isolated over the 18 months or so after the closing of the trial between Sky and EDS and the handing down of his judgment in January this year. A great deal of criticism was thrown at him for taking so long – and I had worried clients ringing me about the case as early as January 2009, who then had another year to wait to see if their worst fears were realised. In the end, Mr ... market research, surveys and trends

Pharmaceutical Regulations in the Russian Federation: Navigating ...
The rapid growth of the Russian pharmaceutical market — which is expected to increase by 20 percent in 2008 to $17 billion and by another 13 percent in 2009 to $19.2 billion — makes the U.S. and Europe seem sluggish in comparison. Pharmaceutical companies don’t want to be left behind and miss out on the opportunity to maximize their sales potential in this ballooning market. But doing business in Russia can be very risky. Not only is Russia’s regulatory policy on drugs excessive, it’s also arbitrarily implemented with little regard to international regulations.

Rail, trucking issues specialty of Jenkintown law firm
He has no model train set. He does not retreat in the evening to a finished basement to don an engineer's cap and devote himself to a childhood fantasy of working on the railroad. Yet Keenan is a railroad lawyer, and in that role he sees enough of the inner workings of the modern freight rail system to make most train buffs green with envy. He travels the country along with his colleagues at the Jenkintown-based firm of Keenan, Cohen & Howard P.C., representing railroad companies and trucking firms in legal disputes, often with shippers. It is a niche area of the law - there are perhaps only several score of lawyers in the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What is the implication of jurisdiction clause in cross-border ...
Each country handles jurisdictional issues differently from others. However, within the EU, each country's courts will (in most circumstances) acknowledge an exclusive jurisdiction clause giving another country's courts jurisdiction over a dispute, and therefore decline to exercise jurisdiction over a case. It's also possible to give non-exclusive jurisdiction, allowing potentially more than one court to have jurisdiction. Outside the EU, the position may be different. In any event, it's necessary to consider the legal and commercial issues on a case-by-case basis. In some cases it may not be in the ...
