Banking and Capital Markets is a practical guide to a field perennially influenced by both legal and market forces. The text is divided into three parts: Part I provides a clear and accessible explanation of the fundamentals behind drafting loan facility documentation; Part II provides a thorough examination of secured lending, which is probably the most legally complex area of the banking solicitor’s practice; and Part III provides a straightforward introduction to capital markets financing, including the process of issuing a stand-alone bond.
This new edition has been revised to take account of recent legislative and procedural changes, including the conclusions of important cases in this area.
