Description

A one-stop source on the law of receivers and administrators in insolvency, this popular title offers authoritative guidance and is frequently cited in court.

This book:
 
  • Takes account of wide-ranging recent case law
  • Discusses key decisions on the invalidity of the receiver’s appointment and its consequences
  • Examines the law on floating charges following the Spectrum decision
  • Considers the first case law on administrations set up with improper motive
  • Looks at conflict situations arising under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002
  • Explains the still-controversial Pre-Pack Procedure for the selling of the business of the company-in-administration
  • Deals with cross-border insolvency issues relating the EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings, the UNICITRAL Modal Law and the US Chapter 15 procedure
  • Contains a separate section covering the law in Scotland.
