New book on the law and finance of related party transactions

Editors are Luca Enriques of Oxford University and Tobias H. Tröger, Goethe University and SAFE

In a book published in June 2019, “The Law and Finance of Related Party Transactions”, leading scholars in the field of law and finance from around the world provide a comprehensive analysis of the challenges legislators face in regulating related party transactions in a socially beneficial way.

Editors of the book are Luca Enriques, Professor for Corporate Law at University of Oxford, and Tobias H. Tröger, Professor for Private Law, Commercial and Business Law, Jurisprudence at Goethe University and Program Director “Corporate Governance and Corporate Finance” at SAFE. He is also Director of the Center for Advanced Studies on the Foundations of Law and Finance.

The volume combines contributions which examine the theoretical foundations of an efficient regulation of related party transactions with chapters that look at specific legal regimes from an empirical and/or comparative law perspective. The selection of jurisdictions surveyed grants in-depth insights on a broad variety of regulatory strategies and their interdependence with socio-economic and political conditions. The book not only provides state of the art scholarship but also allows readers to draw conclusions on which regulatory responses work under which circumstances.

The book was published by Cambridge University Press. More information can be found on the website of the publisher.
