Please join us for the latest Business Law Seminar presented by Essex Law School
This event is goiing to talk about the book Banking Bailout Law: A Comparative Study of the United States, United Kingdom and the European Union (Routledge US & UK, 2020). The book examines the different bank bailout and resolution techniques and tools through carefully selected case studies from the US, the EU, the UK, Spain and Hungary. The pros and cons of the different legal and regulatory options are identified in order to reconstruct a regulatory framework that might better serve countries in future financial crises. In her presentation, Dr Blazsek will also reflect on the relevant legal-regulatory developments and banking bailout cases of the past two years, which all seem to confirm her theory summarized in this book.
