In addition the third edition also includes a new chapter on regulation and financial disputes in the civil courts. The chapter considers the protection offered consumers under The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 ("FSMA"). This includes dispute resolution through the Financial OmbudsmanScheme or the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, and, in the context of an authorised firm, a statutory right to claim for breach of rules made by the regulatory authorities and for acting beyond the scope of authorisation under the Act. This new edition provides very timely analysis of the recent changes in regulatory structure and substance providing valuable insights into the way in which the regulation and rules have and will be interpreted by the various new authorities. It is a must-have reference source for all lawyersworking in financial services.
