Course Description

This course considers the international aspects of banking and finance. The globalization phenomenon is nowhere more evident than in the financial markets where the absence of international law poses a variety of new challenges for business lawyers. Emphasis is given to advising clients in relation to cross border transactions including public and private issues of debt and equity, loan syndications and sub participations, securitizations, treasury products including foreign exchange transactions and interest rate and currency swaps. Consideration is also given to basic tax issues including withholding tax and treaty arbitrage. Finally cross border restructurings are analyzed with case studies involving how to advise domestic and international clients in relation to large scale commercial failures.
