Written by members of the of the Academic Committee of the Banking and Financial Services Law Association, this work explores and offers practical perspectives on current tensions throughout the finance sector in Australia and New Zealand. It identifies and addresses common issues in banking and financial services law highlighted by the global financial crisis, offering analysis and assessment of case law and legislation, and guidance towards managing resolution.
