Supreme Court rules on recognition of foreign measure for bank reorganisation (Goldman Sachs v Novo Banco)

The Supreme Court ruling in Goldman Sachs v Novo Banco [2018] UKSC 34, recognises that a decision of the Portuguese central bank that, when it incorporated the respondent bank as a bridge institution and transferred to it the assets and liabilities of a failed bank, a liability to the appellants under a loan agreement had not, as a result of Portuguese law, been included in the transfer. Richard Salter QC and Jonathan Mark Phillips, of 3 Verulam Buildings, examine the decision in News Analysis: Supreme Court rules on recognition of foreign measure for bank reorganisation (Goldman Sachs and others v Novo Banco).


FMLC responds to European Commission proposal on 'third-party effects' of assignment of claims

The Financial Markets Law Committee (FMLC) has sent a letter in response to the European Commission's proposed regulation on the 'third-party effects' of the assignment of claims. The proposed regulation applies the law of the assignor's habitual residence to the proprietary and third-party effects of an assignment, with various carve outs. The FMLC reiterates its previously published view that the law of the underlying claim, rather than the law of the assignor's habitual residence, should apply in this context.
