This textbook deals with the foundations and key issues of corporate insolvency law and approaches the topic from a comparative perspective, i.e. it does not concentrate on one insolvency law in particular but rather introduces the relevant rules from various jurisdictions, primarily England (and Wales), France, Germany, and those of the USA. It is case focused and designed for learning and teaching corporate insolvency law.
“It is clear that extensive research went into this book and that it is an extremely valuable step forward in learning on the topic. It will be very helpful to all those who embark on a study of insolvency and restructuring law and I have no doubt that it will find its way in
academia and practice.”
