Rory Derham is a Barrister at the New South Wales Bar in Australia.
Review from previous edition: "... the most up-to-date and comprehensive examination of the forms of set-off and their analogues under English and Australian law ... this latest edition of Set-Off is a dazzling testament to the depth of Dr Derham's legal scholarship and remains, as always, a fitting member of Oxford University Press' series of monographs on modern equity." --Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation
"This book deals with English and Australian law with a thoroughness which cannot be found elsewhere. Whilst the work may appear to be academic, it is of immense use to the practitioner ... the opportunity for an excursion into legal history is one of the delights of the book." --Solicitors Journal
