The Law of Finance: A Comprehensive Treatise for Practitioners provides a comprehensive overview of international finance law from an English perspective. It discusses in detail key concepts such as contract law, property law and tort law, which are not covered in other texts.

With a comparable structure to Hudson's academic title of the same name, this title has been significantly modified to include the depth and practical perspective needed by those in practice.

  • Discusses the EC and international initiatives to regulate financial activity

  • Looks at tort and other wrongs such as breach of trust and equitable fraud
  • Takes you through the law which covers various types of lending transactions
