Insolvency Law

Corporate and Personal (Third Edition)

By Andrew R. Keay, Peter Walton

With personal debt and business rescues increasing rapidly, even non-specialist practitioners are increasingly finding their work affected by corporate or personal insolvency. Insolvency Law: Corporate and Personal is written in a detailed yet straightforward way, making it accessible to both practitioners and students. This comprehensive book explains UK legislation and discusses cases on all aspects of UK corporate and personal insolvency, covering each of the procedures available. The text is presented logically under headings, with pointers to more specialized information and additional cases. Now in its third edition, the book significantly expands the material on international insolvencies in order to address many case law developments. In addition, it covers: the changes in the UK's Insolvency Rules * the latest case law on the prescribed part under s.176A * changes to the law on dissolutions of companies * the anti-deprivation principle * how the football creditor rule operates in CVAs * the conflicting case law on procedural requirements for out-of-court administrator appointments.
