NIAS - P.R.I.M.E. Finance Fellow (1 April 2013 – 30 June 2013)
An unexpected consequences of the global financial crisis was the unearthing of a major, longstanding financial fraud, one of the biggest scandals in Wall Street history, the Madoff affair. Through various "feeder funds", individual as well as institutional investors were steered into the fraudulent scheme. The resulting disputes triggered arbitration clauses in standard form contracts and the difficulties associated with these specific clauses highlighted their deficiencies, deficiencies bolstered by US Supreme Court decisions, and the need for specialised expertise to draft the arbitration clause and look at the complicated legal issues that arise in case of a dispute.
This project will look at the use of arbitration clauses in financial contracts, in particular with respect to investors and intermediaries, from a comparative perspective. It will distinguish between their use among professionals and as between retail investors and professionals, comparing the United States, the UK and selected continental European jurisdictions.
