In the light of the global growth of litigation in the financial sector following the financial crisis, Herbert Smith Freehills has sponsored 'Getting The Deal Through' for the launch of the first edition of the guide to Financial Services Litigation 2016.
The guide charts the growth of litigation in the financial sector worldwide and answers key questions in major jurisdictions. Topics covered include: (i) common causes of action; (ii) powers of regulatory authorities; (iii) alternative dispute resolution; (iv) specialist courts and procedures; (v) disclosure requirements; (vi) data governance issues; (vii) remedies and enforcement; and (viii) changes in the regulatory landscape since the financial crisis.
Herbert Smith Freehills has contributed the following country chapters: Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and United States of America. Additional country chapters such as Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland have been contributed by firms recommended by Herbert Smith Freehills.
While the existence of financial services litigation is truly a global phenomenon, it has become apparent through the process of compiling this edition that the law and procedures in relation to such disputes have evolved in different ways across the jurisdictions.
