Lawyer Monthly Latest Edition

Edited by Oliver Sullivan

From The Editor

This month’s edition features a focus on alternative dispute resolution. Throughout our Expert Insight, Thought Leader and My Legal Life sections, we take a deep dive into some of the most engaging aspects of ADR from a global perspective. From the emergence of arbitration in Saudi Arabia to the popularity of mediation in the Hong Kong construction industry, we consult legal experts on many of the most thought-provoking topics in the dispute resolution space.

Our front-cover features this month are equally engaging. We have the privilege of interviewing Graham Chase, an extensively experienced chartered surveyor who draws upon his knowledge and training to predict the coming shifts in the UK property market. We also hear from Avigal Horrow, who relays the fascinating trajectory of her own career in law, and Jaime López, who explores the factors that are conspiring to make Mexico a new M&A powerhouse.

In addition to these exclusive interviews, this month’s magazine includes a range of articles on the topics currently dominating the global legal landscape. In the Special Features section we take a look at the legal profession’s mental health crisis, the mounting backlash to the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v Wade, and the reasons behind the ongoing barrister strikes that have rocked the UK courts.

As ever, the August edition also comes with a monthly round-up of M&A news, lawyer moves and many other matters sure to be of interest to the legal sector.

We hope that you enjoy this edition.
