This book is intended to provide a middle road between the basic student text and the heavy practitioner’s manual. It covers all aspects of insolvency, including both corporate and private bankruptcy together with the alternative routes to the insolvency process. The book aims to give not only a view of the complex legal issues met with in the field of business, but also addresses the practical alternatives open to insolvent debtors and creditors. Includes a new addendum to take into account the effects of the recent Insolvency and Enterprise Acts.
