Walkers Contributes to American Bar Association Guide to Security Interests

Walkers Partner Alexandra Corner has contributed the Jersey chapter to The American Bar Association Business Law Section's “Global Financial Collateral: A Guide to Security Interests in Securities, Securities Accounts, and Deposit Accounts in International”.

The guide is based on a questionnaire that focuses on the choice-of-law complexities and substantive similarities and differences involved in international secured transactions. The guide covers more than 40 jurisdictions, including G-20 countries, offshore jurisdictions and other countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia.

The questionnaire provides a common framework through which variations among jurisdictions can be identified, facilitating cross-border analysis.

Global Financial Collateral was co-edited by Penelope L. Christophorou and Celeste Boeri Pozo. Ms Christophorou is counsel at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, based in its New York office. She is chair of the Business Law Section and also a past president of the American College of Commercial Finance Lawyers. Ms Pozo is lead counsel at the Inter-American Investment Corporation in Washington, D.C. She is vice-chair of the Business Law Section’s UCC Committee.
