Book description

In The Financial Courts, Jo Braithwaite analyses thirty years of cases involving the global derivatives markets, exploring the nature of these legal disputes and assessing their impact on financial markets and on commercial law more broadly. Weaving together this substantial body of cases with theoretical insights drawn from the growing literature on the internationalisation of financial law, Braithwaite offers readers a detailed and highly original contribution to the debate about the role of private law in international financial markets. This important work should be read by lawyers, economists and regulators in the field.


‘This is an outstanding contribution to our knowledge of not only the derivatives markets but financial markets more generally. It should be compulsory reading for audience of this journal.’

‘The book under review provides an excellent cornerstone for further research exploring the evolution of the role of English courts in financial markets in light of technological developments. The book also provides an insightful account of English law that will support comparative studies and research on the roles of national courts in dealing with complex financial transactions in the future.’

‘… the book is well written and exudes the vigorous amount of research undertaken. It is a must-read for any practitioner or those interested in the field of financial derivatives as it encapsulates and clearly traces the development of jurisprudence in the field of derivatives litigation. The book will certainly go on to establish itself as one of the most important works in the academic landscape of derivatives.’
