Based on parts of the leading work McKnight, Paterson and Zakrzewski on the Law of International Finance, 2e, this new book is an accessible introduction to loan agreements in English law and practice. The book focusses on loan agreements, syndicates and trading providing the core areas with which newcomers to banking and finance law must familiarize themselves and which often require the most research.
The book opens with an overview of English contract law setting out the key concepts and principles relevant to commercial lending transactions. There is a section on loan facility agreements which explains the typical loan agreements, and the relevant law and application to those agreements. In the section on syndicated lending , legal issues arising from the relationship between lenders are analysed and problem areas are tackled. Potential claims, by borrowers against the arrangers of a syndicate and its agent are also analysed, including an explanation of possible protection against such claims. The final part explains the legal and practical issues surrounding the trading in parts of loans on the secondary market.
A clear, concise and authoritative work on loan agreements and lending, this book is a useful guide for all working in the field, particularly junior lawyers and postgraduate students.
