ST. PAUL, Minn., July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With its sweeping overhaul of the U.S. financial regulatory system and reforms on a scale not seen since the post-Great Depression era, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act made derivatives regulation a hot topic on Wall Street. Now financial institutions and regulatory agencies can read the first-ever legal primer on the subject with the release of Filler and Markham's Regulation of Derivative Financial Instruments (Swaps, Options and Futures) Cases and Materials.

Published by West Academic Publishing, an imprint of legal publishing company West Academic, this highly anticipated reference book details the legal implications and industry practices related to the regulation of derivative financial instruments. Using cases and commentary to illustrate key points of law and industry practices, authors Ronald H. Filler and Jerry W. Markham – both of whom are derivative practitioners and legal scholars – explore the regulation of swaps, futures and options by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission. They also examine the regulatory history of derivative instruments; trace the development of modern market structures; and address the role of exchanges, clearinghouses, and market participants, including futures commission merchants, swap dealers, and hedge funds that act as commodity pool operators.

A June 2014 book review in the Futures and Derivatives Law Report hails Regulation of Derivative Financial Instruments (Swaps, Options and Futures) Cases and Materials as a monumental accomplishment.
