The article discusses the challenges in trading of debts across European Union (EU) member states under the Article 14 of the Regulation 593/2008 or the Rome I. Article 14 covers relationship between assignor and assignee, voluntary assignment and contractual subrogation of a claim and transfer of claims. One concern regarding assignment is that it is ineffective in transferring an assignor's rights. Another issue is what law applies to transfer of assignor's rights.
