Book description

Global Securities Litigation and Enforcement provides a clear and exhaustive description of the national regime for the enforcement of securities legislation in cases of misrepresentation on financial markets. It covers 29 jurisdictions worldwide, some of them are important although their law is not well known. It will be an invaluable resource for academics and students of securities litigation, as well as for lawyers, policy-makers and regulators. The book also provides a comprehensive contribution debate on whether public or private enforcement is preferable in terms of development of securities markets. It will appeal to those interested in the legal origins theory and in comparative securities law, and shows that the classification of jurisdictions within legal families does not explain the differences in legal regimes. While US securities law often serves as a model for international convergence, some of its elements, such as securities class actions, have not been adopted worldwide.


‘This book provides a unique view on the compensation of investors' losses in jurisdictions worldwide and is therefore of great interest to practitioners and supervisors.'

Ashley Alder - Chief Executive Officer of the Securities and Futures Commission, Chairman of the Board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO)

‘Around the world the past two decades have witnessed significant strengthening of the legal protections afforded to investors in securities markets. The dynamic development of the field is reflected in this remarkable book, which provides a timely in-depth analysis of the enforcement of securities laws across 29 jurisdictions in all continents. Conac and Gelter have assembled leading country experts to give authoritative evaluations. This book enters a field where scholarship and practice work hand-in-hand enriching each other and helping to identify the legal strategies that can most effectively protect investors and is a fine addition to the canon.'

Eilis Ferran - University of Cambridge

‘This is a most interesting book for investors, issuers, regulators and academics. It informs on how securities regulation is enforced in 29 jurisdictions on all Continents and what works better, public or private enforcement or best a mix of them. It seems that today there is more convergence than path dependency, a fascinating story not to be missed.'

Klaus J. Hopt - Max Planck Institute, Hamburg
