Sovereign Debt Restructuring: Legal, Financial and Regulatory Aspects is a major new work addressing many of the significant issues related to the management and restructuring of sovereign debt. It provides lessons for future credit events affecting the whole range of sovereign debt financial participants, transactions and instruments.
Written by leading practitioners and renowned academics, this title provides in-depth analysis of aspects of the intersection between the recent financial crisis in Europe and the law, litigation and practice of selected key international jurisdictions - mainly the United States, Europe and certain international arbitration tribunals.
In particular, the book examines the main sovereign financial restructurings that have arisen in recent years; the road ahead for the countries most affected, such as Ireland, Portugal and Greece; sovereign debt litigation over the last 15 years; the analysis and application of derivatives involving sovereign debt; and the role of the arbitration tribunals in claims arising from unpaid sovereign debt.
This authoritative title provides legal practitioners, academics, financial agents, financial institution officers, investment analysts and managers, investors and officials of regulatory agencies with the information they need to navigate their way through the challenges arising from one of the most complex areas of the international financial markets.
