DLA Piper to be biggest law company

first_img DLA Piper is to merge with Australian partner DLA Phillips Fox to create what it says could be the world’s largest law firm.The combined entity will create a 700-strong legal empire in the Asia-Pacific region. DLA Piper already employs around 4,000 lawyers across 30 countries and generates revenues of £1.4bn.It will jump ahead of Chicago-based Baker & McKenzie as the world’s largest law firm by number of lawyers.The Australian expansion is driven by the boom in M&A. The sector more than doubled last year to $108.5bn (£68.25bn), providing a cash cow for hungry lawyers.The move is also a strategic step to take advantage of the rapidly expanding Asian economy.The deal is still subject to a vote from DLA’s partners, who must be 75 per cent in favour of the move. The integration will come into effect on 1 May.Sir Nigel Knowles, co-chief executive of DLA Piper, said: “The cementing of the relationship between DLA Piper and DLA Phillips Fox is part of our global strategy and is an integral part in helping us become the world’s leading business law firm. “As part of our strategy we are committed to expansion within the G20 nations, and with Australia as the 14th largest industrialised nation it provides excellent opportunities with its strong ties to some of the most rapidly growing economies in Asia.”DLA Piper was created in 2005 by the merger of DLA, Piper Rudnick and Gray Cary.

The IH Residence is located in Bandung, a town with a cool and crisp climate. This project came from a family with a large size of land (approximately 5600 m2), that wants to be turned into a family residence. The house would have quite an abundant amount of functions, but would still retain the vastness of the landscape. It was built in a neighborhood with low density, thus making it very possible to create a detached-house for the family.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Mario WibowoThe site elongates and slopes up from the south to the north. A third part of the land works as a service area in the front of the site, and a basement that has sunk 3 meters lower than the main part of the house. The design follows the nature of the elongated site by building a long large massing in the center of it, detaching it from any site walls to support the cross-ventilation along the building.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThe large mass of the building is balanced with an optimal size of terraces, balconies, and wide pools that was built all across the perimeter. In an attempt to make the mass lighter, the facade is dominated by clear glass that also helps in welcoming the beautiful landscape around the site to the interior.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Mario WibowoSave this picture!© Mario WibowoAs a city, Bandung is prone to have a high rain precipitation every year, so in order to take on the rain and avoid direct sunlight, the house has a wide set of eaves that can go as far as 6 meters. Due to the site the circulation was designed progressively by using long ramps, while long corridors are aided with reflecting pools and direct view of the landscape. Green areas within the site could amount to almost as big as the house.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThrough the sloping nature of the site, the building uses the landscape to its own benefit by playfully emphasizing the different height in spaces and varying circulations. The northern part of the site is higher than the rest of the site, defining the main building by enclosing it, and still creating a certain intimacy within the site.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoProject gallerySee allShow lessAn Alternative Museum for Burning Man and a Concrete Lighthouse: 12 Unbuilt Projects…ArticlesLUME Restaurant / Estúdio MangavaSelected Projects Share Photographs Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: andramatin Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Bandung, Indonesia IH Residence / andramatinlast_img read more

Cookstown Hotel owner ‘de-arrested’ over drugs

first_img WhatsApp Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme The PSNI has de-arrested the owner of the Greenvale Hotel, who they said they arrested earlier on today (Wednesday) on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply.Lauren Bullock, 17, Morgan Barnard, 17, and Connor Currie, 16, died after a crush outside the hotel in Cookstown on St Patrick’s Day.On Tuesday Mr McElhatton was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter along with a man, 40.In a statement this evening, Michael McElhatton, 52, said: “I have nothing whatsoever to do with drugs.”Mr McElhatton said: “While I wished to respect the ongoing investigation by the police into the tragic deaths of the three young people at the Greenvale Hotel on St Patrick’s night, I have no choice but to make it completely clear that I have nothing whatsoever to do with drugs.”I can assure everyone that whatever any suspicions the police have raised about me in relation to anything to do with drugs is totally without any basis.”I am shocked and horrified that the powdery substance taken by police from the laundry in my house could be drugs.”Despite there being no basis to these suspicions, they have blackened my name and caused so much upset for so many people especially those who are grieving and distressed over the events at the Greenvale Hotel.”The PSNI said the de-arrest “follows fast track forensic examination of a suspicious package consisting of a white powder substance and tin foil, found during a search of a house in Moneymore”.

Dozens of passengers hurt after a Turkish Airlines plane made emergency landing at JFK: FAA

first_imgWABC(NEW YORK) — A Turkish Airlines flight made an emergency landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday evening after 29 passengers, including a flight attendant, were injured when the plane encountered turbulence, officials said.According to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the city’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM), the Boeing 777 was en route to New York from Istanbul when the aircraft encountered mid-air turbulence.There were 329 people on board, including 21 crew members, according to Steve Coleman, a spokesman with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. “It kind of jolted pretty quickly,” passenger Amir Mehrbakhsh told ABC News. “There was like one or two seconds when it was subtle, but then it really started to pick up. … Just because the drop was so sudden, a lot of people got lifted up and hit their head either on the ceiling or on the side of the plane, and so there were a lot of injuries pretty quickly.” The turbulence occurred over Maine about 45 minutes prior to landing, authorities said.Most of the passengers were treated inside an airport terminal. Ten of the 28 passengers were taken to a hospital after the plane landed on Saturday at 5:35 p.m. Two crew members were also injured.Coleman said a flight attendant had a possible broken leg and others suffered bumps, bruises and cuts.“Nobody announced it or anything like that so we figured out something was wrong,” passenger Sead Nikaj told ABC News. “Then I see people start flying on the plane. Then seeing blood all over. I had one of the ladies next to me, she really fell down from her seat on the floor and all her back was completely bloody, while someone that was working in the airplane, she cracked her leg I think completely.”“There was this one guy … and he was frantically screaming,” Mehrbakhsh said. “I think he was like doing a religious chant. I kept hearing him say ‘Jesus,’ like he was visibly distraught.”Emergency first responders worked with Port Authority officials on scene to treat the injured, according to the FDNY.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

‘Cannot tell their left hand from their right’

first_imgThat’s how the people of Nineveh are described the Book of Jonah, but we might equally claim it about the Germans. Or at least the political campaigners.As last Saturday’s neo-Nazi rally approached in the district of Hausen here in Frankfurt, posters started to appear everywhere. They were, unsurprisingly, all attacks on the National Democratic Party of Germany, the NPD, who were protesting against the construction of a mosque in the area.Some of the posters just say “No Nazi”. Others call for “religious freedom”. But many simply state: “Gegen Rechts”. Against the Right. “Links kommt” (the Left is on its way) is another common one. I’ve seen them all around Germany.There are two problems with this. One is that, by polarising the two stances, it suggests that you have to be on the Left to oppose the Far Right. This is not the case. Centre-right parties have no time for racist groups and are often quicker to call for their ban than the Left are. Compare David Cameron’s firm stance on Hizb ut-Tahrir with the Labour government’s decision to keep them legal. The second is the implication that you’re either with the Nazis or against them. Many on the Right – the moderate Right – abhor the extremists but sympathise with their concerns about the changing face of Europe. They also want to uphold the original culture and values of whichever country the debate is taking place in. They are also worried about the potential problems of multiculturalism. But they don’t believe they should be ‘solved’ with Nazi methods. And they don’t want to associate themselves with the skinheads who march in the name of nationalism.Like the BNP, the German Far Right are not as ‘right’ as most people think. As conservative commentator Melanie Phillips has argued, their policies mark them out as pretty leftish. I don’t suppose the NPD were there last weekend to march against high taxes or excessive nationalisation, which would really make them a right-wing party.Maybe people should stop this polarised outlook and take those misleading posters down.Cherwell 24 is not responsible for the content of external siteslast_img read more

Oxford’s reputation catches up with Cambridge for first time

first_imgOxford University’s public reputation has equalled that of Cambridge University for the first time, according to the latest edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) World Reputation Rankings.Since the creation of the rankings seven years ago, Cambridge has always surpassed Oxford, but this year’s rankings places the two institutions in joint fourth place.The improvement in reputation comes after the appointment of Louise Richardson as the University’s first female Vice Chancellor, with the editorial director at THE, Phil Baty, describing the move as “symbolic”.“This was a historical moment—these big symbolic things can make a difference for being front of people’s minds and being noticed,” he said. “Having a woman at the helm means there is a sense of change, momentum and difference”.Louise Richardson took up her post as Vice Chancellor in January 2016, replacing Andrew Hamilton, but Baty described the effect of her appointment on the University’s reputation as a “slow burner.”Other factors may have contributed to the improvement in Oxford’s reputation, with suggestions that Oxford’s first place in the THE world university rankings and receipt of a series of prestigious research grants may have improved its reputation.The top three places were occupied by Harvard, MIT, and Stanford University for the second year running. Besides Oxford and Cambridge, only UCL, Imperial College, and the LSE appeared in the top 20 of the rankings.The rankings were compiled following a three month survey of over 10,000 academics from 137 countries.last_img read more
