The European Court of Justice has ruled that legal professional privilege does not apply to legal advice given by in-house lawyers in EU competition law investigations. Ruling in the Akzo Nobel case today, the ECJ said that an in-house lawyer, regardless of their membership of a law society or bar association, ‘does not enjoy the same degree of independence from his employer as a lawyer working for an external law firm does in relation to his client.’ The court held that, in reaching this decision, it had not violated the principle of equal treatment in relation to internal and external lawyers. The court followed the opinion of advocate general Juliane Kokott, who recommended to the ECJ in May that legal privilege should not attach to companies’ internal communications with their in-house lawyers. Law Society chief executive Desmond Hudson said: ‘In-house lawyers are the frontline guarantor of compliance. It is sad that while the EU strives to legislate for higher standards of corporate governance and risk management, the decision of the court in effect rejects this key tool in achieving this aim. ‘In-house lawyers are the ally of EU policy-makers, because broader societal benefits stem from companies behaving legally, ethically and well. In-house lawyers ensure such behaviour best when they know their full, frank and independent legal advice can be given in confidence. ‘The court has missed its opportunity to recognise how the role of the in-house lawyer has developed since this issue was last before it. More and more companies now have in-house lawyers who make an increasingly important contribution to ensuring that the business is informed of and meets its legal and regulatory obligations.’ He added: ‘I hope EU policy-makers will come to appreciate the great value that such lawyers bring to both the private and public sectors. It is in their interests to trust these lawyers to get on with their jobs and to trust their regulators to guarantee their independence and ethical behaviour. ‘A solicitor is a solicitor, whether working in private practice or in commerce and industry.’
The collapse of freight rates during the second half of last year was out of line with the underlying supply and demand fundamentals, says Drewry. This suggests that carriers have not yet rid themselves of certain self-sabotaging traits and that talk of a new golden age for carriers was perhaps exaggerated.Despite the recent developments, in the latest Container Forecaster report, Drewry retains its view that the carriers are heading towards a brighter future, while also acknowledging there are several temporary factors that have created a bump in the road to recovery.One area that might have been expected to provide a more immediate benefit was the significant consolidation occurring in the market. Although, on reflection, its limited impact is not that surprising as the latest wave of consolidation has barely become operational, says Drewry, with most transactions either just concluded or still pending.Even after all of the latest deals are finalised, Drewry predicts that they will not have sufficient weight to move the industry all the way to being a non-collusive oligopoly, which it previously outlined as being necessary to herald a new era of ‘liner paradise.’Drewry adds that it perhaps overlooked the risk that the merger activity would make some acquisitive companies more aggressive with their pricing, to minimise customer attrition. www.drewry.co.uk

REUTERS/Ramzi Boudina A woman wearing a protective face mask disinfects the window of a bus, following the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), in Algiers, Algeria March 16, 2020. REUTERS/Ramzi BoudinaThe Algerian government on Tuesday announced its decision to extend the country’s lockdown until May 31, in efforts to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.This is the third lockdown extension decision, as the second one is due to expire on Thursday.Health Minister Abderrahman Benbouzid said that Algeria has avoided the worst scenario thanks to the adoption of efficient treatment protocols and mobilization of all sectors, including the health sector.He reiterated that the figures of newly confirmed cases are announced every day and may raise concern of the population, but “I would like to reassure that the increasing number of infections is due to the increase of detection sites currently estimated at 20 nationwide.”Benbouzid noted that the number of fatalities is kept under 10 cases per day, and less than 20 cases are admitted to intensive care units nationwide, adding that the country’s hospitals have a capacity of 6,000 beds.Health authorities reported 176 newly confirmed cases, eight new deaths and 157 new recoveries during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of infections to 6,067, the death toll to 515, and the total recoveries to 2,998.Algeria reported the first infection with the coronavirus on Feb. 25, an Italian national who was subsequently sent back home.Related Lesotho extends COVID-19 lockdown until May 5 India to extend COVID-19 lockdown
