Our team: Charles Proctor
Fladgate partner Charles Proctor has authored The Law and Practice of International Banking, published by Oxford University Press on 12 March 2015.
This is the second edition of this major reference work on banking law and it continues to provide authoritative analysis of current practice and the law that applies to it.
With a broad coverage of topics such as syndicated loans, security structures, derivative products and mis-selling claims, the book tackles areas which have particular relevance to current practice. Amongst these are cross-border matters such as world-wide freezing injunctions, foreign disclosure orders, the bankers’ duty of confidentiality and the impact of sanctions on banking transactions. In particular, the book provides detailed examination of various matters arising out of the Lehman collapse and the failure of the Icelandic banking system. Reflecting the continued growth of the Islamic finance market, there is also a section on this highly specialized but increasingly important area.
Charles Proctor has extensive experience of advising on banking law and financial services regulation in the UK and the Far East. He is an Honorary Professor of Law at the University of Birmingham and a Visiting Professorial Fellow at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University, London. Charles is the author of the prestigious publication Mann on the Legal Aspect of Money, now in its 7th edition, and has written numerous articles on financial and banking law.
Charles has given a number of exclusive video interviews to Oxford University Press about recent and future developments in international banking; these can be accessed here.
