Goode and Gullifer on Legal Problems of Credit and Security clearly explains the fundamental concepts of common law and equity as they affect secured transactions. It provides a thorough explanation of the law of credit and security, enabling the reader to understand how the underlying principles apply to different transactions.

  • New sections on the law relating to digital assets, including cryptocurrencies and tokenised securities
  • Discussion of digital assets (and electronic trade documents) as the objects of security interests
  • The inclusion of new case law and thinking relating to set-offs, the attachment of security interests and the ability of the equitable mortgagor of receivables to sue the account debtor
