Abstract

This note, on the basis of a review of the current law related to disclosure of acquisition of claims against distressed companies and the proposals for regulation of this area, argues that no new (legislative) regulation is necessary, as the market tends to regulate itself, under the supervision of the bankruptcy judges.

Keywords: bankruptcy, claims trading, disclosure, regulation
