Insolvency Legislation: Annotations and Commentary


Ninth Edition, October 2020

Insolvency Legislation: Annotations and Commentary provides practical guidance on the key primary and secondary insolvency legislation. In addition to the complete texts of the key statutory provisions, each is annotated with detailed analysis and commentary, providing practitioners and academics with everything they need within a single portable volume.

Combining the experience and knowledge of an established practitioner team and two leading academics, the book provides a practical discussion of relevant insolvency provisions and case law.

The 9th edition has been updated not only to show the permanent statutory changes following the introduction of the CIGA 2020, but also annotated in a way that alerts busy practitioners to those provisions that are temporarily affected by the new legislation.

Key new cases covered in this edition include:

  • e Akkurate Limited [2020] EWHC 1433 (Ch) - extra-territoriality and s 236

  • Lehman Bros Australia Limited v MacNamara [2020] EWCA Civ 321 - rule in Ex parte James
