The Law Relating to Receivers, Managers and Administrators is a must-have title for every insolvency lawyer and practitioner.

Hailed as the most thorough work available in the area, it is an intensely practical work and is still cited in court. It has a strong international dimension, particularly with reference to judicial decisions in Australia and Asia, which often offer insight into the difficult issues in insolvency and have an influence on the outcome of UK decisions.

The fifth edition is fully updated in line with the Insolvency Rules 2016 which aim to both consolidate and modernise the secondary legislation relating to insolvency in Great Britain.


  • reorder and restructure the rules contained in the Insolvency Rules 1986 (SI 1986/1925)
  • consolidate 23 pieces of amending legislation

    provide a number of substantive amendments to existing insolvency law and practice

      The new edition also address the increasing globalisation of insolvency enforcement, includes coverage of potential legislation following the Review of the Corporate Insolvency Framework (ISD May 2016), and provides comment on the anticipated growth in insolvency work post Brexit.
