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.



One expects that there will be ample scope for a second edition once some of the present difficulties have worked their way through the courts and once the author has had time to draw breath following the effort that has obviously gone into this magnum opus! * Timothy Parsons, Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation * Reviews from previous edition An outstanding and indispensable work by a well-informed practitioner and accomplished writer. An excellent book. * Philip Wood, Allen & Overy LLP * The study is thorough, logical and engaging. Overall, there are absolutely no doubts about the fact that this book is a must-have tool for both academics and practitioners involved in the area of international finance law. This is mainly because the reader can fruitfully get from it an insightful analysis of the main issues concerning this specific area of the law and very useful considerations about how to address these issues. Also, the reader can benefit from a vast number of references to the most recent and relevant court decisions. * Professor Rodrigo Olivares-Caminal, Chair in Banking and Finance Law, Centre for Commercial Law Studies, QMUL (Business Law Review, 2017) * This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date text on the law of international finance, dealing with key issues raised in modern day international financial transactions. With a rich provision and analysis of case law, it provides invaluable insight from the practitioners perspective and, therefore, is a very useful contribution to the literature on this subject. It can easily be described as a must-read for practitioners, academics and students of the law of international finance. * Dr Iwa Salami, University of East London (Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation, 2018) *
