Banking and Commercial Law

Practice Area

In the years of uncertainty since the collapse of Anglo Irish Bank and the liquidity crisis that followed, one theme has remained constant: public demand for more effective regulation.

Written by subject experts, our range of banking and commercial law titles have been designed to enable practitioners, compliance professionals and students to gain mastery over the myriad of different regulatory regimes which underpin these twinned sectors.

Banking and Security Law, by William Johnston and Nora Beausang, offers commentary and guidance on the labyrinthine consumer protection regulations and legislative initiatives which have been introduced since 2008.

The National Asset Management Agency Act 2009: Annotations and Commentary, authored by Hugh B. Byrne and Louis McEntagart, contains invaluable guidance on one of the most important pieces of legislation in the history of the Irish state – making it an essential resource for all practitioners and compliance professionals operating in the financial services sector.

Our titles are available for purchase in print or e-book format.
