Investing in Distressed Debt in Europe makes a genuine contribution to the literature by combining the practical knowledge of its expert contributors with serious legal analysis in an area which is infrequently covered in other work. Crucially, in doing so, it avoids simply setting the law out or recounting war stories from the market. Instead, it has been carefully structured and provides a rigorous analysis of the issues which it covers, so that the reader is likely to be able to navigate to the appropriate point with ease. This means that, whilst the book can certainly be read cover to cover, it is also invaluable for those with specific concerns and time constraints.
The European distressed debt market has grown exponentially during the last few years, experiencing very significant development. Many investors have entered that market with the intention of profiting from the opportunities that this market is offering them. However, navigating the waters of the European distressed debt market has not always been easy, because this market is far from homogeneous and legal fragmentation is the norm.
This co-publication with TMA Europe provides an overview of the European distressed debt market, covering debt trading, non-performing loans, direct lending, restructuring and workouts. It analyses these topics and others from a pan-European point of view, and is intended as a practical guide for anyone seeking a better understanding of the commercial and legal complexities involved in a highly fragmented market where different jurisdictions, legislative frameworks and market practices apply.
Ignacio Buil Aldana, a partner in the finance and restructuring team at the London office of Spanish law firm Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira, has acted as consulting editor for the publication, which also features contributions from other leading experts in the field. Whether you are a lawyer in private practice or in industry, a financial advisor or an investor, this title aims to give you comprehensive insight into all the significant aspects of the European distressed debt market.
