Descriptions Corporate Insolvency Law
“In this volume Vanessa Finch provides a new way of looking at corporate insolvency laws and processes. She adopts an interdisciplinary approach in placing two questions at the centre of her discussion. Are current English laws and procedures efficient, expert, accountable and fair? Are fundamentally revised conceptions of insolvency law needed if it is to develop in a way that serves corporate as well as broader social ends?” “Topics considered in this wide-ranging study include the different ways of financing companies, the causes of corporate failure and the prospects of designing processes that are rescue friendly. Alternative ways of distributing the assets of failed companies are also examined as are allocations of insolvency risks and the effects of insolvency on a company’s directors and employees.” “Finch argues that changes of approach are needed if insolvency law is to develop with coherence and purpose. Corporate Insolvency Law: Perspectives and Principles offers a framework for such an approach. This book has relevance across the common law world and will appeal to academics, insolvency professionals and students at advanced undergraduate as well as graduate level.”–BOOK JACKET.
