In today's financial world overwhelmed by capital market upheaval, it is important to understand the intricacies of new regulation, and individuals must have a strong foundation in how capital markets function, as well as how financial instruments and derivatives work.

Capital Markets, Derivatives, and the Law provides readers with the foundation necessary to make informed, well-reasoned decisions about capital market participation, derivative utilization, and adherence to existing and future regulations.

This publication is an essential guide for attorneys and business professionals seeking an accessible resource to better comprehend the legal and business considerations of capital markets and derivatives transactions, while offering expert insight into how derivatives work. In this book, Alan N. Rechtschaffen explores the structures of derivatives as well as how they are regulated and litigated. In addition, he provides useful definitions, case law examples, and insight into structures, regulation, and litigation strategies.

This Second Edition analyzes the state of the capital markets from the perspective of the acute crisis back in 2008 to the present evolution, providing the reader with the tools to recognize vulnerabilities in capital market trading activities that existed before the crisis, and those that face our global economy now, and into the future.
