This is the first book to offer a profound, practical analysis of the framework for the judicial and pre-judicial protection of rights under the supranational banking supervision and resolution powers in the European Banking Union (EBU). It is also unique in its in-depth commentary on the developing case law from the European Court of Justice in this new field of EU litigation.

Key features include:

• clarity on the procedural requirements for judicial review
• a comprehensive commentary on the existing case law of EU courts in the field
• insight and analysis from front-line practitioners, as well as expert scholars
• a detailed and up-to-date examination of banking supervision and resolution in the EBU
• discussion of the development of EBU law as a crucial area of EU law and its integration into the EU’s legal order.

This book is a must-read for practitioners in the field of banking law and regulation. In particular it will be the authoritative reference point for those working in European and national public institutions such as supervisory and resolution authorities, courts, central banks and ministries of finance, as well as those working in or advising private organisations concerned with the exercise of supervisory and resolution powers. The book will also be of significant interest to scholars and postgraduate students of EU financial and banking law and governance.
Critical Acclaim
‘With this edited volume, Zilioli and Wojcik, two esteemed experts in the area, present a very comprehensive, but tightly focused analysis of judicial and pre-judicial review mechanisms in the EU for the financial sector. By assembling a very useful set of tools for everyone involved in this field, the volume provides an essential support for further developing the new branch of litigation as a part of supranational administrative law.’
– Cornelia Manger-Nestler, Common Market Law Review

‘The book covers an evolving topic that becomes more relevant each day as the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) is deepened and is therefore a good addition to any law library.’
– Jenny Gesley, International Journal of Legal Information

‘The European banking union has led to the creation of a unique legal framework in which national and European authorities and rules governing banking supervision and resolution procedures are intertwined. This brings about many challenging and interesting questions with regard to judicial protection of banks, shareholders and other stakeholders that are currently emerging into a whole new branch of litigation before the European courts. This book gathers contributions by highly recognized practitioners and researchers that have closely followed the developments from the very beginning and gives a comprehensive and problem-oriented overview of current questions as well as possible future developments. It is therefore a highly useful tool for everyone working in this field.’
– Juliane Kokott, Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the European Union, Luxembourg

‘Though focused on the specifics of practice in the EU, and the European Banking Union in particular, this book also makes important contributions to the subject of judicial review of banking supervision in other jurisdictions. The analyses of leading European legal experts will be of interest in all countries where judicial review must balance the need for supervisory discretion in overseeing complex financial firms with the imperatives of democratic accountability and administrative fairness.’
– Daniel K. Tarullo, Harvard Law School and former Governor of the Federal Reserve, US

‘This work is a major and original analysis of the crucial role of courts and administrative bodies in the grand unfolding of the European Banking Union. Written in concise and distilled chapters by a superb team of leading experts, the book is a comprehensive and authoritative study for our times of the issues of jurisprudence and practice raised by the remarkable centralizing shift in relation to the supervision and resolution of banks in the EU. This is an essential work for policy-makers, practitioners, academics and everybody else involved in this important arena world-wide.’
– Philip Wood CBE, QC (Hon), formerly Allen & Overy LLP, UK
