Salinger on Factoring (2017)


Noel Ruddy and Nigel Davidson co-edit Salinger on Factoring, together with leading ABL Barrister Simon Mills, which is now in its fifth edition. Salinger on Factoring is generally regarded as the authoritative text on the law and practice of invoice finance in the UK. It is renowned across the globe for its highly practical approach and, in addition to an in-depth legal analysis of UK factoring law, it discusses the various forms, uses and methods by which invoice finance services can assist businesses. It also offers detailed coverage of the legal background in which such services operate.
