Abstract:     
This article compares the client asset protection regimes between the U.K. and the U.S., and then examines their differences in these jurisdictions when a large global brokerage firm, in this case, Lehman Brothers, files for bankruptcy and how such an insolvency proceeding impacts the customers of the failed firm in the two jurisdictions. While the regulatory customer asset protections in place in both countries are designed to provide important customer protections, in reality, the U.K. regulatory structure needs dramatic changes as do the U.K. bankruptcy laws, to enhance its customer protections schemes.
