McKnight, Paterson, & Zakrzewski on the Law of International Finance (2nd Edition)

Edited by Sarah Paterson, Rafal Zakrzewski


This is the second edition of the major practitioner text which analyses the legal issues surrounding international finance transactions operating under English law. As readers of the first edition will already know, the work provides a detailed transaction-led discussion of all aspects of international financing, with supporting analysis of the commercial and regulatory background and the legal principles which underpin international finance practices. A comprehensive treatment of the subject is provided, with topics including conflict of laws, cross-border insolvency, regulation of banking activities, loan facilities, jurisdiction and the resolution of disputes, legal opinions in financial transactions, syndicated lending, bond issues, derivatives and structured finance and equipment financing. Whilst the work has established itself as a major practitioner text, the problem areas are also tackled with valuable references to the relevant authorities and in a highly analytical way. As a result, the work has found a home on the bookshelves of many academics and students. It is anticipated that this new edition will continue to appeal to a broad constituency of readers. This is a fast-moving area, and readers already familiar with the first edition will not be surprised by the scale of new material covered in this second edition. A significant new development has also been that the work has moved from a single-authored to a multiple authored text. A truly expert team of contributors has been assembled, and the editors have striven to maintain the consistency and lively commentary which was a badge of the first edition, whilst drawing on the advantages of a stable of specialist authors. Thus it is anticipated that existing readers and those new to the work alike will find this an invaluable source for all aspects of their practice and research in the field.
