On Friday November 6 2015, the Hazelhoff Centre for Financial Law and EURO-CEFG hosted a symposium on the occasion of the publication of the Research Handbook on Crisis Management in the Banking Sector, edited by prof. Matthias Haentjens, professor of Financial Law, and prof. Bob Wessels, emeritus professor of international insolvency law, both from Leiden University.
This handbook on bank insolvency law is already regarded as the definitive work on banking sector crisis management, especially in the EU. More than thirty prominent academics, practitioners and regulators give a comprehensive overview of the rules around the insolvency of banks. The book covers all recent legislative developments from the whole spectre of banking sector crisis management, from the perspective of the bank itself to the perspectives of the relevant authorities and of the bank’s counterparties. In addition, the book contains (macro) economic introductory chapters and country reports of all major jurisdictions.
