Paul Visser, attorney, strengthens Loyens & Loeff's real estate practice
The close working relationship between attorneys, tax lawyers and civil-law notaries at Loyens & Loeff was an important factor for him in deciding to join the company, and particularly the fact that real estate transactions are increasingly steered from a tax point of view.

Paul Visser had been an attorney in real estate for Boekel de Nerée since 1988. He specialises in real estate transactions, security rights (mortgages en bank guarantees), tenancy rights, and ground lease. He litigates regularly in these areas. Major real estate transactions in which he has been involved include the sale and lease back of Vendex/KBB, the sale of 223 Edah shops owned by Laurus to Sligro Food Group Nederland and Sperwer Holding, the sale of 41 Konmar shops owned by Laurus to Ahold and Jumbo, and the sale of 100 office blocks owned by MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Capital.

Paul Visser follows the example of Bram Linnartz, who left Boekel de Nerée in October 2006 to become a partner at Loyens & Loeff.

European Privacy and E-Commerce Alert
"Mr. Peter Hustinx, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS), issued an opinion on the European Commission’s Communication on the follow-up of the Work Programme for better implementation of the Data Protection Directive which supported the Commission’s conclusion reached in its Communication that the Directive should not be amended at this time — see our E-Alert issue of May 2007.

In particular, he emphasized the importance of: (1) full implementation of the Directive; (2) considering the impact of technological developments on the Directive; (3) having a global perspective and further developing rules on international data transfers; (4) ensuring that personal data are protected despite law enforcement demands; (5) adopting more sectoral data protection legislation (for example, regarding RFID); (6) greater use of infringement procedures against the Member States; (7) encouraging the use of interpretative communications by the Commission to clarify important questions; (8) enhancing the use of non-binding instruments to increase compliance, such as privacy seals; and (9) better defining the role of institutional actors, in particular the Article 29 Working Party."


Mayer Brown Recognized by Yale Law Women as a Top Ten Family-Friendly Firm
Mayer Brown LLP has been recognized as one of the 2007 Top Ten Family-Friendly Firms by Yale Law Women (YLW), the largest student organization at Yale Law School, which co-sponsored the survey with Women's Law School Coalition groups at Boalt(Berkeley), Chicago, Columbia, Harvard, Northwestern, Stanford and Virginia. YLW seeks to emphasize the need for firm employment policies that facilitate work-life balance for attorneys and work environments that accommodate, as well as support, lawyers with families.

"The list is a way to celebrate those firms that have taken important steps toward helping attorneys have both a family and a successful career," said YLW Activism Co-Chair Katie Wilson-Milne. The top ten were selected from 150 firms that completed workplace questionnaires for NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals and were ranked among "the most prestigious" or "best of the rest" law firms by The Vault.

"This recognition is further evidence of our numerous efforts to build a workplace where Mayer Brown people will thrive as professionals," said James D. Holzhauer, Chairman of Mayer Brown. "We are especially proud to note that this honor follows Working Mother's recent recognition of Mayer Brown as one of the 2007 Best Law Firms for Women and the MCCA's Sager Award." The Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) Thomas L. Sager Award is presented to law firms that demonstrate a commitment to creating a more inclusive legal profession and working environment.
