Since the recent financial markets crisis international capital markets (‘ICM’) law and practice are no longer the esoteric topics that arguably they once were. It used to be that there was no greater ‘show-stopper’ to a cocktail party or dinner conversation than to announce oneself to be an ICM lawyer. Nowadays, however, it is not unusual for such conversations to focus on matters such as derivatives or sovereign debt. This edition is designed to help practitioners speak authoritatively on such occasions.
ICM activity by definition shows little respect for national or jurisdictional boundaries. The complete ICM lawyer needs familiarity with comparative law and practice. It would not be surprising if many practitioners felt a measure of insecurity given the pace of change; things are complex, the rules of the game are evolving fast and the transactions can be highly technical.
The International Capital Markets Review is designed to help lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel and academics navigate the complexities of foreign or transnational capital markets matters. With all the pressure – both professional and social – to be up to date and knowledgeable about context and to get things right, there is a space to be filled for an analytical review of the key issues faced by ICM lawyers, capturing recent developments but putting them in the context of the jurisdiction’s legal and regulatory structure and selecting the most important matters for comment. This volume, with contributions from leading capital markets practitioners from 19 of the most significant jurisdictions around the world, seeks to fill that space.
