This new edition of Corporate Insolvency Law builds on the unique and influential analytical framework established in previous editions - which outlines the values to be served by insolvency law and the need for it to further corporate as well as broader social ends. Examining insolvency law in the fast-evolving commercial world, the third edition covers the host of new laws, policies and practices that have emerged in response to the fresh corporate and financial environments of the post-2008 crisis era. This third edition includes a new chapter on the growing issue of cross border insolvency and deals with a host of recent developments, notably; the consolidation of the rescue culture in the UK, the rise of the pre-packaged administration, and the substantial replacement of administrative receivership with administration. Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, professionals and academics, Corporate Insolvency Law offers an organised basis for rising to the challenges of an ever-shifting area of the law.
