Regulation and the Credit Rating Agencies: Restraining Ancillary Services
This book examines the transgressions of the credit rating agencies before, during and after the recent financial crisis. It proposes that by restricting the agencies' ability to offer ancillary services there stands the opportunity to limit, in an achievable and practical manner, the potentially negative effect that the Big Three rating agencies - Standard & Poor's, Moody's and Fitch - may have upon the financial sector and society moreover. The book contains an extensive and in-depth discussion about how the agencies ascended to their current position, why they were able to do so and ultimately their behaviour once their position was cemented. This work offers a new framework for the reader to follow, suggesting that investors, issuers and the state have a `desired' version of the agencies in their thinking and operate upon that basis when, in fact, those imagined agencies do not exist, as demonstrated by the `actual' conduct of the agencies. The book primarily aims to uncover this divergence and reveal the `real' credit rating agencies, and then on that basis propose a real and potentially achievable reform to limit the negative effects that result from poor performance in this Industry. It addresses the topics with regard to financial regulation and the financial crisis, and will be of interest to legal scholars interested in the intersection between business and he law as well as researchers, academics, policymakers, industry and professional associations and students in the fields of corporate law, banking and finance law, financial regulation, corporate governance and corporate finance.

Beyond Legal Reasoning: a Critique of Pure Lawyering
The concept of learning to `think like a lawyer' is one of the cornerstones of legal education in the United States and beyond. In this book, Jeffrey Lipshaw provides a critique of the traditional views of `thinking like a lawyer' or `pure lawyering' aimed at lawyers, law professors, and students who want to understand lawyering beyond the traditional warrior metaphor. Drawing on his extensive experience at the intersection of real world law and business issues, Professor Lipshaw presents a sophisticated philosophical argument that the pure lawyering of traditional legal education is agnostic to either truth or moral value of outcomes. He demonstrates pure lawyering's potential both for illusions of certainty and cynical instrumentalism, and the consequences of both when lawyers are called on as dealmakers, policymakers, and counsellors. This book offers an avenue for getting beyond (or unlearning) merely how to think like a lawyer. It combines legal theory, philosophy of knowledge, and doctrine with an appreciation of real-life judgment calls that multi-disciplinary lawyers are called upon to make. The book will be of great interest to scholars of legal education, legal language and reasoning as well as professors who teach both doctrine and thinking and writing skills in the first year law school curriculum; and for anyone who is interested in seeking a perspective on `thinking like a lawyer' beyond the litigation arena.

Brexit and Financial Services: Law and Policy
This timely book examines the legal and regulatory implications of Brexit for financial services. The UK's withdrawal from the EU is likely to have significant market, political, and policy consequences for the UK financial system, for the single market and the euro area, and for the international financial system. As the UK disentangles its financial system from the EU, law will matter to a profound extent. Treaties, legislation, and regulation, at UK, EU, and international levels, and the many dynamics and interests which drive them, will frame and shape the ultimate settlement between the UK and the EU. Law will also shape how the EU financial system develops post-Brexit and how the international financial system responds. Written by leading authorities in the field, this book addresses and contextualises the legal, regulatory, and policy issues across five dimensions, which correspond to the major legal spheres engaged: financial regulation implications and market access consequences for the UK financial system; labour law and free movement consequences for the UK financial system; the implications internally for EU financial governance and the euro area; the implications and relevance of the EEA/EFTA financial services market; and the trade law and World Trade Organization law implications.

Ethical Business Practice and Regulation: A Behavioural and Values-Based Approach to Compliance and Enforcement
This book explains the concepts of Ethical Business Practice (EBP) and Ethical Business Regulation (EBR), a new paradigm in compliance and enforcement based on behavioural science and ethics. EBR provides the basis for an effective relationship between a business and its regulators, resulting in better outcomes for both. EBR is attracting extensive attention from regulators and businesses around the world. The UK Government's 2017 Regulatory Futures Review draws on EBR as the foundation for its policy of `regulatory self-assurance'. EBR draws on findings from behavioural science, responsive regulation, safety and business and integrity management to create a practical and holistic approach. Examples include the open culture that is essential for civil aviation safety, the Primary Authority agreements between regulators and national businesses, and feedback mechanisms provided by market vigilance systems and sectoral consumer ombudsmen. This book provides an essential blueprint for sustainable business and effective future regulation.

Value Making in International Economic Law and Regulation: Alternative Possibilities
This book examines the contemporary production of economic value in today's financial economies. Much of the regulatory response to the global financial crisis has been based on the assumption that curbing the speculative `excesses' of the financial sphere is a necessary and sufficient condition for restoring a healthy economic system, endowed with real values, as distinct from those produced by financial markets. How, though, can the `intrinsic' value of goods and services produced in the sphere of the so-called real economy be disentangled from the `artificial' value engineered within the financial sphere? Examining current projects of international legal regulation, this book questions the regulation of the financial sphere insofar as its excesses are juxtaposed to some notion of economic normality. Given the problem of neatly distinguishing these domains - and so, more generally, between economy and society, and production and social reproduction - it considers the limits of our current conceptualization of value production and measurement, with specific reference to arrangements in the areas of finance, trade and labour. Drawing on a range of innovative work in the social sciences, and attentive to the spatial and temporal connections that make the global economy, as well as the racial, gender and class articulations of the social reproductive field within it, it further asks: what alternative arrangements might be able to affect, and indeed alter, the value-making processes that underlie our current international regulatory framework?

The Writing on the Wall: On the Decomposition of Capitalism and its Critics
The 2008 global financial crisis has led to the re-emergence in public discourse of the idea that capitalism could end. For many, it was proof of the notion that capitalist civilisation has an endemic tendency towards crisis that will ultimately bring about its demise. Must we assume, however, that such an eventuality would inevitably result in the liberation of humanity, as many orthodox Marxists claim? Through a collection of specially revised essays, first published in France between 2007 and 2010, Anselm Jappe draws on the radical new perspective of the critique of value as a critical tool with which to understand today's world and to re-examine the question of human emancipation. The Writing on the Wall offers a powerful new analysis of the decomposition of capitalism and its critics.

Death of a Law Firm: Staying Strong in the Global Legal Market
For decades, law firms have had one of the most successful business models around. Having weathered many storms, threats, and changes, law firms have managed to increase their profits almost without interruption over the years. As a sector, they have succeeded in growing at a faster pace than the economy in which they operate. Most partners are confident that, one way or another, this will also be the case in the future. Death of a Law Firm argues that now, for the first time in history, law firms are at an existential crossroads. Taking the wrong direction might very well lead to collapse: the death of a law firm. Dark clouds are building heavily in the sky. When the right measures are taken, it is perfectly possible not only to survive the coming storm but to come out even stronger than before. To compensate for the eroding effect of commoditization, law firms have to change their business model. However simple it might seem, changing a business model might be one bridge too far for most firms. As this book argues, the inner workings of law firm partnerships are rigged against change. In reading this book, you will gain an unprecedented insight into the psychology of the partner group--or maybe even a confronting look in the mirror. The good news is that the global legal market will continue to grow. We are not in a shrinking market. The players in the market, however, will be significantly reshuffled in the next five years, leading to the rise of some and to the death of others. Read the book and make sure your firm ends up in the right category.

Aiming for Global Accounting Standards: The International Accounting Standards Board, 2001-2011
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and its International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), have acquired a central position in the practice and regulation of financial reporting around the world. As a unique instance of a private-sector body setting standards with legal force in many jurisdictions, the IASB's rise to prominence has been accompanied by vivid political debates about its governance and accountability. Similarly, the IASB's often innovative attempts to change the face of financial reporting have made it the centre of numerous controversies. This book traces the history of the IASB from its foundation as successor to the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), and discusses its operation, changing membership and leadership, the development of its standards, and their reception in jurisdictions around the world. The book gives particular attention to the IASB's relationships with the European Union, the United States, and Japan, as well as to the impact of the financial crisis on the IASB's work. By its in-depth coverage of the history of the IASB, the book provides essential background information that will enrich the perspective of everyone who has to deal with IFRSs or the IASB at a technical or policy-making level.

Art and Business: Transactions in Art and Cultural Property
This book discusses how art can affect the world of business. As art has gained greater acceptance as an investment, it is appearing in a variety of transactions that expand the traditional dealer-gallery-auction house sale form. Art transactions increasingly include many art-secured lending, securitization, and commercial transactions. The presence of art in these transactions is frequently novel to the parties involved, who may be unfamiliar with the unique issues and challenges of the art world. Insurance plays a more significant role in art transactions than it has in the past, including title insurance. Some of the topics include: *Culture (such as the Elgin Marbles) *Fakes and forgeries*Questions of titles (such as Nazi-looted art) *Restrictions on materials (such as the ban on ivory) *Forms of art-secured transactions (such as consignments and secured loans) *Express and implied warranties on art*Copyright

Real Estate Ventures addresses the difference between IRRs and preferred returns in real estate ventures. Author Stevens A. Carey explains, compares and quantifies different approaches commonly taken when formulating and interpreting how distributions are shared by a financial partner and an operating partner (when the operating partner is entitled to a promote or carried interest after a certain level of distributions) including: * The differences between IRRs and preferred returns * Allowing the promote hurdle balance to go negative when there is a surplus vs. not doing so* In effect, using continuous compounding vs. discrete compounding with simple returns between compounding* When discrete compounding is used, employing separate compounding periods for each cash flow vs. using fixed compounding periods for all cash flows * Using timing conventions, such as, assuming all cash flows occur at the beginning or end of a period Presented in a straightforward format, the book begins with background on the topic and summarizes the basic issues and concepts related to promote hurdles in four parts: * Part A: Accessible, question-and-answer presentation of the basic issues and highlights about the topic, including the differences between preferred returns and IRRs * Part B: Summary of the basic issues and concepts relating to promote hurdles, as well as a more detailed treatment of the differences between preferred returns and IRRs, a discussion of soft hurdles, and of recycling profits, one of the key potential differences between IRR and preferred return/return of capital hurdles * Part C: General background and analysis of the differences between preferred returns and IRRs * Part D: In-depth chapters address issues related to multiple IRRs and effective rates, and a practical solution to avoid multiple IRRs in the context of multiple promote hurdles

Microfinance and Financial Inclusion: The Challenge of Regulating Alternative Forms of Finance
Following the recent global financial crisis there is a growing interest in alternative finance - and microfinance in particular - as new instruments for providing financial services in a socially responsible way or as an alternative to traditional banking. Nonetheless, correspondingly there is also a lack of clarity about how to regulate alternative financial methods particularly in light of the financial crisis' lessons on regulatory failure and shadow banking's risks. This book considers microfinance from a legal and regulatory perspective. Microfinance is the provision of a wide range of financial services, particularly credit but also remittances, savings, to low-income people or financially excluded. It combines a business structure with social inspiration, often resorts to technological innovations to lower costs (Fintech: e.g. crowdfunding and mobile banking) and merges with traditional local experiences (e.g. financial cooperatives and Islamic finance), this further complicating the regulatory picture. The book describes some of the unique dimensions of microfinance and the difficulties which this can cause for regulators, also through a comparative analysis of selected EU countries' regimes. The focus is in fact on the European Union legal framework, with some references to certain developing world experiences where relevant. The book assesses the impact and validity of current financial regulation principles and rules, in light of the most recent developments and trends in financial regulation in the wake of the financial crisis and compares microfinance with traditional banking. The book puts forward policy recommendations for regulators and policy makers to help address the challenges and opportunities offered by microfinance.

Protecting Traditional Knowledge: The Wipo Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore
This is the first comprehensive review of the Intergovernmental Committee (IGC) of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) established in 2000. It provides an in-depth consideration of the key thematic areas within WIPO discussions - genetic resources (GRs), traditional knowledge (TK) and traditional cultural expressions (TCEs) through the perspectives of a broad range of experts and stakeholders, including indigenous peoples and local communities. It also looks at how these areas have been treated in a number of forums and settings (including national systems and experiences, and also in trade agreements) and the interface with WIPO discussions. Furthermore, the book analyses the process and the negotiation dynamics since the IGC received a mandate from WIPO members, in 2009, to undertake formal text-based negotiations towards legal instruments for the protection of GR, TK and TCEs. While there has been some progress in these negotiations, important disagreements persist. If these are to be resolved, the adoption of these legal instruments would be a significant development towards resolving key gaps in the modern intellectual property system. In this regard, the book considers the future of the IGC and suggests options which could contribute towards achieving a consensual outcome.
