- International Practice: Topics and Trends
The International Practice: Topics and Trends e-book,
focuses on timely topics and trends under the general rubric of international practice: controversies or disputes constituting or arising
out of litigations, arbitrations, and regulatory enforcement and investigations of companies, laws, or regulations
affecting more than one international sovereign power. International controversies present not only challenges but often unique opportunities,
for both the client and practitioner. Solutions to the puzzles presented, many of which are discussed and analyzed in the e-book,
may include creating business structures, controls, and legal instruments that enable clients to avoid altogether the problems
posed by international litigation or regulatory matters or to succeed in prosecuting or defending them when presented;
finding a way out of complex and conflicting regulatory regimes; or knowing the specific issues relating to seizing of jurisdiction,
winning the battle of venue, forum, or remedy, how to protect privileges and obtain the evidence needed to win or settle favorably.
As a companion to the e-book, Lou also maintains an International Practice Law Blog, that provides
timely discussion of judicial and regulatory decisions as well as topics and trends in international litigation, international dispute resolution,
and international investigations, regulatory compliance, and enforcement.
