Combining perspectives from practice, legal theory and doctrinal analysis, this book presents a comprehensive examination of the questions facing the current understanding and future application of corporate finance law, such as the optimal adaptation of regulation in highly dynamic settings and the scope for innovation in legal markets in light of the current debt crisis.

The book considers areas of corporate finance that are likely to be of key importance in the next few years including regulatory reforms, which are of present concern. It also addresses timely and important questions such as the impact of higher interest rates on capital markets strategies and how directors should balance the demands for disclosure and transparency with the cost of compliance.

Bringing together contributions from over 20 international leading academic and practitioner experts in this area, this book provides a comparative perspective of equity financing, debt financing, European law and policy, and practical research on how to improve and solve current problems related to corporate finance.
