English courts have extensive experience in disputes related to ISDA master contracts, which are under English law, and their decisions are currently directly applicable throughout the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). Indeed, european regulations (Regulation 1215/2012 of 12 December 2012) stipulate that judgments rendered in a Member State are recognised in all Member States without the need for a particular procedure. Therefore, after making a decision in England, a party to a senior contract of the ISDA may, under English law, rapidly increase the assets of a failing counterparty, regardless of the circumstances of those assets. French counterparties can now benefit from the completeness of the ISDA management contract, while maintaining French law. Even if they are not French, two parties will benefit from the use of French law to ensure that court decisions are automatically recognised throughout Europe.

The structured and derivatives team also translated the FBF`s updated agreement into English.

If the transactions could not be authorized within the applicable time frame, a further change in circumstances (Article 7.2.1.3) allows the parties to terminate these relevant transactions. A framework contract is a set of common conditions that have been agreed before by the parties and apply to all transactions of the same type between them.
