In the course of an environmental crisis, environmental legal liabilities and regulatory responsibilities arise and must be managed to attempt to minimize the risk of financial loss to the company in crisis and to preserve any rights or opportunities that may exist to recover cleanup costs and legal defense costs. Legal counsel will play an important role in advising the company in the course of developing strategy and tactics in responding to the environmental release or spill itself and in reacting to asserted and potential legal claims by government agencies and private individuals and entities. Several critical issues must be considered when an environmental crisis occurs: Prepare For a Crisis Before It Occurs. To reduce the risk in the first place of a release, good management practices should be developed to reduce the chances of a spill.

Whenever clients ask about filing a trademark in China via the Madrid System, my answer is simple: filing a national application directly with the Chinese Trademark Office (CTMO) is better. Co-blogger Steve Dickinson takes an even stronger position. In his opinion, filing a China trademark via the Madrid System is a waste of time, and he categorically refuses to do it. The Chinese trademark system is complicated: at once idiosyncratic and highly regimented, and overseen by capricious examiners. But the one-size-fits-all Madrid application elides all of this and makes registering a trademark in China seem easy. Really easy: all you have to do is check a box marked “China.”

Construction Law Toolbox : Mississippi Construction Lawyer & Attorney : Biggs, Ingram, Solop & Carlson, PLLC : MS & Southeast Construction Law Toolbox The Fifth Circuit’s recent decision in X Technologies, Inc. v. Marvin Test Systems, Inc., 2013 U.S.App. LEXIS 11739 proves the power of a single-letter word. It also proves that even the most reasonable commercial expectations should not color one’s perception of what is actually written in a contract. This focuses on that portion of the X Technologies decision showing that "exclusive teaming" does not mean "mutually exclusive teaming". One partner may have to dance with the one that brung him, but the other partner does not!

Read the complete Law of the Sea Treaty here. The Law of the Sea Treaty, formally known as the Third United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, or UNCLOS III, was adopted in 1982. Its purpose is to establish a comprehensive set of rules governing the oceans and to replace previous U.N. Conventions on the Law of the Sea, one in 1958 (UNCLOS I) and another in 1960 (UNCLOS II), that were believed to be inadequate. Negotiated in the 1970s, the treaty was heavily influenced by the "New International Economic Order," a set of economic principles first formally advanced at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
