Conference and panel discussion on Financial Derivatives

  • Lupicinio International Law Firm, in collaboration with the Revista de Derecho del Mercado de Valores (the Market Value Law Review) sponsored an exceptional conference and panel discussion on Financial Derivatives. 

Christian Johnson, Hugh B. Brown Presidential Endowed Chair in Law, College of Law at the University of Utah, gave a lecture at the General Council of Spanish Lawyers entitled “Extraterritoriality of the Derivatives Regime in Dodd Frank” which explained and analysed the conflicts of extraterritorial jurisdiction caused by the global over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market and posed possible solutions to prevent regulatory arbitration and the risk of fragmentation of the global market. He highlighted the fact that although the countries that participated in the 2009 G20 Summit committed to the reform of the over-the-counter global markets by avoiding conflicts in extraterritorial jurisdiction, the differences in approach between the United States and the European Union in the regulation of these derivatives have caused opportunities for the development of certain conducts in regulatory arbitration. Professor Johnson’s presentation determined the origin and nature of these conflicts and proposed solutions to minimise the risks of such conducts and the possible fragmentation of the OTC derivatives global market.

The panel was led by Alberto Alonso Ureba, Professor of Commercial Law at the URJC and included Francisco Garcimartín Alférez, Professor of Private International Law at the Autonomous University of Madrid and Iñigo Gómez Jordana, Professor at the Stock Market Institute and Partner at DLA Piper.It was an outstanding discussion on an extremely topical matter.
