This acclaimed and comprehensive work analyses the legal issues involved in international finance transactions operating under English law. The second edition thoroughly updates the book to take account of major developments in regulation, practice, and case law since the first edition published in 2008. The most notable development in the intervening period has been the global financial crisis of 2008-9, whose effects have profoundly changed the nature of international finance, and the new edition has been updated by a team of expert editors and contributors to reflect the post-crisis legal framework of international transactions. The new edition covers the many significant changes to Bank Regulation which have occurred since 2008. Major developments in conflicts of laws and cross-border insolvency are addressed, including the consequences of the decision in Rubin v Eurofinance. This edition also takes account of major litigation in the sovereign debt field, significant developments in the loan markets, and recent challenges with the provision of legal opinions, including the increasing need to provide opinions in cross-border transactions. Developments in financing structures in the aftermath of the financial crisis are examined. Significant litigation in the derivatives field (partly as a response to the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.) and amendments proposed by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association are also addressed. There is also coverage of further work on secured transactions following the Law Commission's and the City of London Law Society's Working Party's proposals. Providing detailed transaction-led analysis of all aspects of international finance practice, this work is a must-have reference source for all practitioners and academics working in the field.
