Sovereign debt and eurozone developments

20 February 2015

The daily developments in the eurozone present significant challenges to senior management and legal teams. The current focus is, of course, on events in Greece and in particular the fraught negotiations between the new Greek government and the Eurogroup in relation to the Greek bailout. We are monitoring developments closely and addressing the legal impact of events for our clients.

While each institution will take its own view as to likely scenarios that may develop, we have been working with our clients on the complex legal analysis and issues behind the latest events, and to identify steps to allow clients to best protect themselves as each new development unfolds.

As significant new developments arise, we will post updated commentary here. Our lawyers around the world, and in particular the Allen & Overy Global Law Intelligence Unit (a faculty of expert Allen & Overy lawyers with expertise in cross-border law) have written a number of relevant publications since the start of the eurozone crisis in 2011:
