Over the past year, news on sovereign debt crises were hard to avoid. Greece, Spain, Argentina, even Belize. What lessons can lawyers draw from these crises? Do creditors still send the Fifth Fleet to defaulting sovereigns? Collective action clauses, the role of hedge funds, the meaning of pari passu and credit derivatives, all feature in this bird's eye view of the sovereign world.
