Philip R Wood of Allen-Overy is rightly hailed as the oldest of the capital market lawyers for his groundbreaking six-volume Law and Practice of International Finance (Sweet — Maxwell, 1995). In addition, on the library, I would not slip a volume of more than 180 pages, How to negotiate Eurocurrency credit contracts (Euromoney, 1995), a second edition of which will be published early next year. The author is known in these pages, Is Lee C Buchheit, dean of lawyers who handle the restructuring of sovereign debt, and a partner in Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen and Hamilton. The book is characterized by the way The Book captures the madness of the euro markets. It`s partly funnier than a Marx Brothers script. It is essentially a simple clause clause manual on a syndicated credit contract. «Great work that offers a map through a particularly difficult legal minefield» — PROF. WILLIAM W PARK, BOSTON UNIVERSITY»I know of no better introduction to international business transactions than this book that elegantly combines the experience of an experienced lawyer, broad historical sense and a wonderful joke and clarity in a short work.
