Minority shareholder rights in Argentina: the need for prevention and dispute resolutions methods
When partnering to do business, it should always be considered the rights the Argentine General Companies Law Number 19,550 (Ley General de Sociedades Nº 19,550 or LGS for its Spanish acronym) grant to minority shareholders or partners – many of them with no minimum shareholding requirement -, such as … continue reading on our Legal Blog.

Bill Braithwaite QC has reacted to news that the interest rate used in the calculation of damages awards to those suffering life changing injuries from clinical negligence has been slashed by the Lord Chancellor. The Ministry of Justice announced the discount rate would drop from 2.5 per cent to minus 0.75 per cent.
"This is hugely significant - it could double some damages awards," said Bill.
"For someone in their twenties, lump sum damages would change from £4.8 million to £11 million. For someone in their sixties, where it impacts less, lump sum damages would change from £3.8 million to £6.5 million."

It's people or friends that offer you a loan if in debt survey you would be better referring them to somewhere like citizens advice to get proper help if you loan them money they just get more debt.
I've been lecturing and writing about experts for 25 years, but the same points arise again and again.
A friend of mine pointed me to a case report that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise, because it doesn’t relate to brain injury, but shoulder dystocia.
The claimant’s obstetric expert was Ms Chaliha, about whom the judge said: “In his closing submissions, Mr B made a number of serious criticisms of Ms Chaliha. I quote below from his written submissions
i) She undertook to provide expert evidence in respect of a shoulder dystocia in 1993 in circumstances where she had no experience of managing a shoulder dystocia until 1998
ii) She failed to supplement that knowledge by reference to any textbook other than a single textbook published in the UK, and accepted “on reflection” that she should have done more
iii) She failed to give a balanced opinion in her report
iv) She was evasive and prolix in the face of difficult questions
v) She made unjustified criticisms in her report
vi) She made several unjustified and unexplained attempts to change her opinion in favour of the Claimant at trial
vii) She appeared not to understand the relevant anatomy
viii) She appeared not to understand the basics of managing shoulder dystocia
These are serious criticisms, but I regret to say that they are justified.
I found Ms Chaliha to be a distinctly unimpressive witness, with a serious lack of knowledge of clinical practice in 1993 and a worrying lack of appreciation of the importance of basing her opinions by the standards pertaining at that time.
In her report, in considering the standard of care in 1993, Ms Chaliha referred only to one textbook, an American publication …. Asked why she referred only to it, Ms Chaliha gave the astonishing answer that it was the only textbook she had readily to hand.
The approach adopted by Ms Chaliha to what was a fundamental part of her report was, in my judgment, unbalanced and highly misleading. The misfortune of such an approach is that it may provide a claimant with an unrealistic hope of success or fatally weaken what might otherwise be a valid claim….
There are other features in Ms Chaliha’s report and evidence which appeared to demonstrate a worrying lack of understanding of some of the basic anatomical principles.”
