Rapid Response Briefing

‘Saving the Banks: What Price Nationalisation?’

4th November 2008

In response to the global financial crisis, governments worldwide have taken unprecedented measures including nationalisation of banks. While many believe that the emergency of the situation justifies any such measures, the aggrieved shareholders may disagree. Litigation by Northern Rock shareholders is already under way in the UK courts. At this Rapid Response briefing, the speakers will look at the economic factors leading to the nationalisation of the banks and assess the relevance of international legal instruments such as the European Convention on Human Rights and bilateral investment treaties.

Solicitors and barristers may claim CPD hours through attendance at this event.
