In this urgently needed book, a member of the Eurozone and Sovereign Debt Working Group at Slaughter and May – perhaps the premier law firm involved in cases related to sovereign debt –focuses on the legal implications of default or exit by a euro zone state. Examining separately the consequences for private sector and official sector creditors, the author provides penetrating analysis and commentary on such elements of the crisis as the following:

  • legal limitations on developing or expanding arrangements designed to avert sovereign default;
  • compatibility with EU law of the outright monetary transactions (OMT) programme;
  • implications for euro zone member states of decisions arising out of the 2001 Argentine default;
  • legal implications of the redenomination of euro obligations into a new national currency;
  • impact of capital and exchange controls including their compatibility with IMF, GATT,GATS, and EU law;
  • potential for member state liability to bondholders under bilateral investment treaties;
  • enforcement of judgments against a sovereign defendant;
  • paths to euro zone exit;
  • redenomination in the courts of other EU States;
  • unlawful euro zone exit;
  • expropriation; and
  • enforcement of arbitral awards;
  • and much more.
