Convention on Supplementary Compensation: Liability Implications for the Nuclear Industry
Authors: James A. Glasgow, Stephen L. Markus
Now that Japan’s Diet, as of November 21, 2014, has approved Japan’s ratification of the Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage (CSC) and implementing domestic legislation, Japan presumably will soon deposit its instrument of ratification with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Ninety days following such action by Japan, the CSC will enter into force, since its requirement for entry into force (a minimum of five ratifying parties collectively having at least 400,000 MW(t) of installed nuclear generating capacity) will have been satisfied. While the additional compensation aspect of the CSC’s impending entry into force has attracted global attention, less consideration has been given to the CSC’s impact on the nuclear liability of sellers and purchasers of components, nuclear fuel and related technology and services for the construction and operation of nuclear power stations. This client alert provides our views concerning the most significant near-term implications of the CSC’s entry into force.
Ancillary Joint Ventures Involving Taxable and Tax-Exempt Health Care Entities: Addressing the Chilling Effect of IRS Inaction

Authors: Gerry Hinkley, Allen Briskin, Caitlin Bloom Stulberg
Tax-exempt health care systems facing growing operating costs and falling revenues frequently explore creation of ancillary joint ventures (AJVs) as vehicles to raise capital, share risk, expand coverage, and provide care more efficiently, while preserving exempt status and avoiding unrelated business income tax (UBIT). Joint venture activity among tax-exempt entities is robust.1 However, tax-exempt systems typically are frustrated in their attempts to partner with taxable organizations because of the inadequate current state of guidance from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding tax-exempt/taxable combinations.
