Mayer Brown White Paper
The global ship finance community is facing a number of issues given the high levels of secured shipping debt held by many banks in this community, which shipping companies are struggling to meet from operations suffering from surplus capacity and low demand. In addition to the major structural challenges faced by the industry as it seeks to recover from the crash of 2008, the European Central Bank is now reviewing the quality of the collateral held by ship finance banks as security for these loans. Once the ECB’s review is complete, many banks may need to strengthen their balance sheets and offload risky assets.

UK Employment Law - The View from Mayer Brown
Nick looks at three cases reported in the last fortnight. One case considers the whistleblowing legislation and how much information an employee has to communicate, before getting the protection of the legislation. The second case makes it more difficult for employers to avoid the TUPE service provision change provisions, and the third case raises some important points on enforcement of restrictive covenants, and in particular when will damages be an adequate remedy.
