Insolvency, Parts A to G

The focus of Butterworths Corporate Law Service is matters pertaining to the formation, management and financing of companies and the core transactions commonly undertaken by them, such as joint ventures and takeovers.

Over recent years, insolvency law has developed into a very significant and specialised body of law which it is no longer possible, or appropriate, to address in any substantive way in a company law work. For that reason, the material included in the Insolvency Binders of this work is no longer part of the Corporate Law Service. Rather, where insolvency impacts on company law matters, such as directors? duties, it is addressed in that context. For practical guidance and a comprehensive discussion of insolvency law, please refer to our specialist text, Tolley's Insolvency Law Service.
