Monday 6 September 2010 8:16 pm Tags: NULL KCS-content THESE are interesting times for the City’s law firms. The coming years promise massive changes, and the firms that make our shortlist are those which are positioning themselves to take advantage of the opportunities. Whether it’s looking at promising practice-areas, merging or looking towards the new markets, law firms are prepared. Don’t miss the City event of the year – get online now and book your table for the City A.M. Awards on Thursday 28 October 2010 at Grange St Paul’s Hotel, London EC4. www.CityAMAwards.com.FRESHFIELDS BRUCKHAUS DERINGERGenerally considered to have had the best downturn of any of the Magic Circle firms, Freshfields is the only City law firm to have increased its corporate revenue since 2007. Profit per partner still remained at the stratospheric level of £1.4m. The firm was also instructed to advise BP?in the case of a hostile takeover bid this year – a blow to rival Linklaters, which has represented the oil giant for decades – and which could net Freshfields tens of millions.HOGAN LOVELLSWhile many law firms were shedding people and worse in the aftermath of the downturn, Hogan Lovells took the opportunity to expand and secure itself for the future by merging with US?firm Hartson. The new firm will have a good Asian business courtesy of its British wing, and will also allow it to capitalise on the profitable American market. A brave move, and a credit to the forward-looking attitude of managing partner David Harris.NORTON ROSEA merger with Australian firm Deakins showed that Norton Rose means business in the Asia-Pacific region. Added to that, the firm reacted to the downturn with a flexible working, reduced-hours scheme that saved jobs and the costs of re-hiring to fill posts that many firms are facing now. When you also consider its work advising on the BA/Iberia merger, you could argue that this was the year that Norton Rose moved into the big time.SLAUGHTER & MAYThe bluest of the city’s blue-blooded firms, Slaughters is still the City law firm with the most LSE-listed clients – and still the only one with more than 100. It is still the go-to firm for the biggest listed companies, representing a whacking 27 of the FTSE 100 and 44 of the 250. And it seems to have been barely slowed by the financial crisis – already this year with its European “friends” it has completed 64 M&As this year. Others might rise and fall, merge and move into new practice-areas, but Slaughters just marches on.STEPHENSON HARWOODSingled out for being “all over the regulatory work” by a nominee, largely down to the work of Tony Woodcock, head of the regulatory litigation group and described by Chambers as the “counsel of choice” on the area. But the firm’s expertise is wider than that, reaching back to the Guinness and Barings investigations and, most recently, to Northern Rock, while it also acted in the high-profile insider dealing case involving Cazenove partner Malcolm Calvert. Over the past five years, it has had the fastest-rising profitability of any UK law firm. whatsapp whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ LAW FIRM OF THE YEAR |

GiG sees strong interest for its services and products with an increasingly healthy pipeline of opportunities.”Speaking in an investors’ call, Reed added: “We are uniquely positioned to capture the growth from offline to online gambling. We are becoming the one-stop shop for every iGaming business.”Other key highlights in the period included GiG signing up its first poker client, while shortly after the quarter-end, GiG announced it is to launch an online sportsbook in partnership with Hard Rock in New Jersey, US.Reed confirmed that Hard Rock expects to go live with GiG services in the fourth quarter of the current year. He added that GiG is also in the process of applying for a licence for its affiliate business in New Jersey.“Our geographical expansion is focused on regulated and soon-to-be regulated markets,” he said.In addition, last month GiG unveiled plans to take on the competitive UK B2B sports betting market after announcing the launch of its sportsbook platform in the region via its Rizk.com brand.Expanding on this, Reed said that although GiG has only just launched its new sportsbook service, it is “already competitive with the most prominent players in the market”.He added: “We’ve been through a very strong period of business and we have completed our ecosystem.“We are ready to leverage on our complete ecosystem and key strengths, driving revenue and market share for our partners. We are committed to attracting new customers converting from offline to online.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address

Rear Window House, the private family residence of Edward Ogosta, AIA, is a discreet yet decidedly modern addition and remodel to a 1944 bungalow in an area abundant with intact dwellings of the same era. Key to the serene, minimal design was a sensitivity to context to lessen the addition’s impact on the neighborhood. Through careful sequencing of new spaces, and strategically located apertures, the home opens itself up to become deeply integrated with the rear garden. All exterior and interior finishes are unified to create a seamless architectural experience using a restricted material palette of glass, aluminum, wood, asphalt shingles, and concrete. Existing interiors were updated to be simple and bright, via new skylights, bleached oak floors, and white walls. The project culminates in the master bedroom’s expansive rear window, which is framed by aluminum-clad plate steel and cantilevers above a small pond. The design demonstrates how a thoughtful, strategic intervention can breathe new life into an older home, serve the needs of the contemporary family, and maintain neighborhood scale. Save this picture!© Steve KingSave this picture!Existing floor plan – New floor planSave this picture!© Steve KingWhile the existing house served admirably as a compact starter home for decades, the architect’s growing family necessitated building a master suite extension into the backyard. Guided by a philosophy of making the most impact with the least number of moves, Ogosta started with the removal of a large, centrally located tree to liberate space for the simple rectangular volume. To strengthen the connection between old and new, the addition maintains the traditional pitched roof slope prevailing in the original home and throughout the neighborhood, but with a geometric twist to create a more open, airy feeling inside. The new volume is entirely skinned with asphalt roofing shingles, anchoring the building to the vernacular materiality of the area. Save this picture!© Steve KingTo create the home’s signature rear window, Ogosta integrated plate steel and moment frames for the extruded aluminum-wrapped enclosure that cantilevers out two feet from the building face. The glass wall features a built-in door that leads to the backyard pond and garden via a stepped concrete plinth. The window offers the intensely private experience of being surrounded by nature, and at times the home feels far from the city. Tall hedges planted around the property reduce noise pollution from the nearby 405 Freeway and provide added privacy, aiding in the quiet atmosphere Ogosta and his family desire.Save this picture!© Steve KingInfluenced by the California Minimalism practiced by the Light and Space movement of the 1960s, Ogosta sought to create moments of clarity that conjure a serene, meditative experience. The end of a hallway is intentionally kept pure of furnishings or artwork to draw focus on the natural light coming in from the skylight above. Strategically placed apertures and skylights bathe the home in intersecting light of varying temperatures, creating a subtle drama and interplay between warm and cool gradients, recalling the experience of a James Turrell Skyspace.

SomaliaAfrica News RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region News RSF_en RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists SomaliaAfrica Help by sharing this information March 2, 2021 Find out more to go further Receive email alerts February 24, 2021 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Somalia News Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia News December 4, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Toll of journalists killed in suicide bombing increases to three Reporters Without Borders is saddened to learn that the toll of journalists killed in yesterday’s suicide bombing in Mogadishu’s Shamo Hotel has risen to three.According to the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), a Reporters Without Borders partner organisation, freelance fixer and cameraman Abdigafar Abdulkadir Hassan, aka Yaasir Mario died yesterday evening in the Medina Hospital, to which he had been taken in a critical condition with injuries sustained in the bombing.A Radio Shabelle reporter and an Al-Arabiya TV cameraman were the two other media fatalities.The journalists injured in the bombing include:- Mohamed Aweys Mudey, a reporter for Somaliweyn Radio- Abdulkadir Omar Abdulle, a reporter for Universal TV- Mohamed Abdi Hussein, a reporter for Hurmo Radio- Khalid Maki Banadir, a cameraman with Universal TV- Omar Faruk, a photographer for the Reuters news agencyThe Islamist insurgents of the Al-Shabaab militia and the Hezb-al-Islam group today denied being responsible for the bombing.——————————————————————————-03.12.2009 – At least two journalists killed and seven others wounded in Mogadishu suicide bombingReporters Without Borders is stunned and saddened by today’s suicide bombing in a Mogadishu hotel that killed more than a dozen people including at least two journalists, three government ministers and nine students.The explosion occurred during a ceremony at which Banadir University students were being awarded graduation diplomas. At least seven other journalists were wounded. The figures for dead and wounded are only provisional.“We condemn this attack with the utmost firmness and we express our solidarity with the two news media whose journalists were among the fatalities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “One of these news media, Radio Shabelle, has already seen two of its directors killed in the past two years, while other Radio Shabelle journalists have been killed this year.”The press freedom organisation added: “With violence at a peak in Somalia, journalists who try to cover the country’s chaotic political situation are living a nightmare. Those who masterminded this cowardly bombing are responsible for the deaths of these two journalists. The use of blind violence must stop and should be condemned by all parties to the conflict.”Radio Shabelle reporter Mohamed Amin Adan Abdulle, 24, and Al-Arabia TV cameraman Hassan Zubeyr Haji Hassan were the two journalists killed in today’s bombing, which occurred at the Shamo Hotel in a district known as “Kilometre 5” on one of Mogadishu’s main avenues. Three ministers in the transitional government were also killed while a fourth, the sports minister, who is a former journalist and founding member of the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), was badly injured and was reported to be in a critical condition.According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, at least seven journalists were injured by the blast, including Agence France-Presse photographer Mohamed Dahir.No group has so far claimed the bombed but the Islamist militia Al-Shabaab was widely suspected. A hotel employee said one of the students participating in the ceremony detonated an explosive vest that he was wearing.“We cannot cope with this level of violence anymore,” a former Radio Shabelle journalist based in Mogadishu told Reporters Without Borders. “Most of my colleagues now want to stop working because it has become too dangerous.”Radio Shabelle was one of the nominees in the Media category for the 2009 Reporters Without Borders – Fnac Press Freedom Prize, which was awarded yesterday in Paris. The capital’s most respected privately-owned radio, it is also the one that has been targeted most. Its director, Mukhtar Mohamed Hirabe, was fatally shot four times in the head in the centre of Mogadishu while on his way to work on 7 June (http://www.rsf.org/Le-directeur-de-Radio-Shabelle,33288.html). Two of his employees were killed earlier this year while his predecessor, Bashir Nur Gedi, was himself murdered in 2007.Concerned by the growing violence to which journalists are exposed in Somalia, Reporters Without Borders awarded a grant of 2,000 dollars last July to send 20 bullet-proof vests to journalists there (http://www.rsf.org/Grant-to-help-protect-beleaguered.html).With eight journalists killed so far in 2009, Somalia is the world’s second deadliest country for journalists, after the Philippines. It was ranked 164th out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Picture : AFP / Mohamed Dahir January 8, 2021 Find out more
News to go further Receive email alerts Organisation RSF_en News IndonesiaAsia – Pacific The magistrate in charge of the McCulloch/Sadler case in Banda Aceh announced his decision on 3 October that the two women were to remain in custody. They should have been released on 1 October, but under Indonesian law the authorities have the power to detain suspects for a maximum of 40 days if further investigations prove to be necessary. The police should, at the end of their investigations, have gathered sufficient evidence to bring charges, and the case then passes into the hands of the magistrate. The latter decides whether the case is to be brought before the court and, if appropriate, fixes a date for the trial. So far there is still uncertainty about the charges to be brought against the two women: initially arrested for violating immigration laws, for which they could face a prison sentence of up to five years, it is possible, however, that they could be accused of “spying” or even of “collusion with separatist armed movements”.________________________________________________________________Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the abusive detention of British journalist Lesley McCulloch. She has been in police detention at the Banda Aceh police headquarters on the Island of Sumatra since 11 September, accused of fraudulent use of a tourist visa. Banda Aceh is the capital of the province, which is prey to separatist fighting by GAM (Free Aceh Movement) rebels. “It is intolerable that no foreign observer whatsoever has been authorised to report on the situation in Aceh,” stated Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of the organisation, adding that “legal artifice cannot mask the authorities’ real intentions which are to silence any discordant voices”.The British researcher, who lives in Australia and until recently taught at the University of Tasmania, has also worked for the Australian radio and television company ABC and the newspaper Green Left Weekly. She is also well known for her frequent contributions to Asian magazines on the question of the independence of Aceh. Ms McCulloch has been visiting the province for a number of a years in order to carry out research and to write about the conflict which has lasted for 26 years. She has reported in detail on the Indonesian military’s abuses of human rights and has brought to light the economic and financial interests underlying the conflict. She was arrested on 11 September by a group of soldiers, together with an American nurse, Joy Lee Sadler, and their local interpreter, Fitra Bin Amin, as they were leaving a village in the south of the province. Ms McCulloch’s luggage was searched, and her laptop and camera closely examined, in an attempt to find evidence linking her with the rebel groups. The police claim that she had in fact visited a GAM base. Later her house in Aceh was also searched. She has been detained since then, is not allowed to make telephone calls or give interviews, and since 14 September the police have been closely monitoring her meetings with her lawyer. She is also apparently being deprived of sleep and sexually harassed. No decision about her case has yet been taken. She is accused of violating Articles 40 and 52 of the immigration law because she took advantage of her tourist visa to carry out activities in relation to the GAM. She risks a prison sentence of up to five years and/or a fine of nearly 25 million rupiahs. Ms McCulloch had to wait for six days before being granted the legal status of suspect. This is in total violation of the Indonesian penal code, which demands that a status be attributed within 24 hours following the arrest.No foreign presence is tolerated in the province of Aceh, and the authorities are exasperated by what they consider as unjustified support by journalists, human rights groups and intellectuals for the separatist movement in Aceh. Already in March 2002, the Indonesian government refused to renew the press visa of the Jakarta correspondent of the Australian daily papers The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, Lindsay Murdoch.

Home / Daily Dose / Investors Shore Up Stock in GSEs Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Print This Post About Author: Brian Honea Two major investors have shored up their stock in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac after a judge dismissed two lawsuits regarding the sweeping of GSE profits into the U.S. Department of Treasury, causing the price of GSE stock to plummet.William A. Ackman, head of Pershing Square, and Bruce Berkowitz, head of Fairholme Capital, have both added to their respective stakes in the two GSEs. In the last week of September, Judge Royce Lamberth threw out lawsuits filed by Fairholme and Perry Capital against the government claiming that the sweeping of GSE profits into Treasury was illegal. The judge ruled the sweeping of the profits was legal under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act.Pershing Square filed two similar lawsuits against the government in mid-August, and those suits are still pending. Fairholme and Perry have each filed an appeal of the judge’s decision to dismiss their lawsuits. Pershing Square no longer regularly reports its holdings in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but it is known that the New York-based hedge fund is the largest non-government owner of GSE common stock.”Fairholme’s conviction in its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac positions has not changed, and Fairholme actively monitors all of its positions – particularly during periods of market overreaction,” a source familiar with Fairholme said.Pershing Square could not immediately be reached for comment.The share price for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac experienced gains of more than 5 percent last week after the announcements by Ackman and Berkowitz, but the price of shares for both is still down by more than 30 percent since the judge’s ruling.The government seized control of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac back in September 2008 at the height of the nation’s financial crisis, after which Treasury provided $188 billion to bail out the companies. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have since become profitable and have returned $218.7 billion in dividends to taxpayers.
