Mayer Brown Legal Update
Yesterday, in CNH Industrial, N.V., v. Reese, the US Supreme Court—without hearing arguments—admonished the Sixth Circuit for using pro-retiree presumptions to find ambiguity as to the duration of health benefits. The Court reached this conclusion based on briefing alone, including an amicus brief filed by Mayer Brown. This Legal Update briefly discusses the ruling, which is good news to employers providing medical benefits to union retirees and seeking to make a change.

It is not uncommon to see that the law governing a loan document is different from that of the debtor company’s place of incorporation. Can the rights of the lender be altered by a restructuring plan sanctioned in the latter? The English court said “no” in a recent case, applying the longstanding Gibbs rule that also applies under Hong Kong law.

In a precedent-setting decision delivered on 8 February 2018, the Hong Kong Court of First Instance has granted a recognition order in favour of foreign liquidators appointed in an insolvent liquidation commenced by a shareholders' resolution. In so recognising the foreign liquidators, the Court confirmed that its exercise of the common law power of assistance (see our Legal Update "Hong Kong Recognises Foreign Liquidators" (2014)) extends to foreign insolvent voluntary windings-up, an issue that has been in doubt following the views expressed by Lord Sumption in the widely cited Singularis decision [1] [2015] AC 1675 at [25].

On 1 March 2018, new arbitration rules of the German Institution of Arbitration (“DIS”) will come into force.

The revised DIS Rules are designed to suit the needs of both domestic and international parties. They also aim to enhance the efficiency of arbitration, providing proceedings that are non-bureaucratic, flexible and open to party autonomy. The DIS Rules will apply to any arbitration starting on or after 1 March 2018.
