Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This insightful book provides a comprehensive analysis of the interplay between EU financial regulation and civil liability. It explores this interrelationship in order to determine whether a coordinated approach has been adopted.

Examining EU law and the law of several current EU member states, one former EU member state, and the US, expert contributors consider the level of coordination between financial regulation and civil liability achieved throughout different sectors of financial services and activities, such as payments, credit, and securities, as well as among the various actors involved in public, private, and hybrid enforcement, such as courts, alternative dispute resolution bodies, and financial regulators. Distinguished scholars contribute a variety of perspectives, combining top-down and bottom-up legal comparative analysis, law and economics, and experimentalist governance, in order to outline directions for cross-sector and cross-actor coordination to develop more fully at EU and national level. In doing so, they highlight the need to fundamentally rethink the role of civil liability, and private law remedies more generally, as a regulatory and compensatory tool in European financial law.

Scholars across the fields of European and private law, financial regulation and economics will find this book to be an astute and engaging read. It will also prove an indispensable guide for practitioners working in financial regulation and private law throughout the EU and beyond.
