This important book provides a comprehensive analysis of governance issues that exist in relation to the management of insolvent companies, both while an insolvent company is still controlled by the directors and when it passes into the hands of an insolvency practitioner in a formal insolvency regime. Throughout, the authors argue that the two most important features of corporate governance are transparency and accountability and offer a detailed analysis of the relevant law and practice.

Key features include:

  • examination of the position of all stakeholders in an insolvent company, both before and during an insolvency regime
  • specialist explanation of what corporate governance entails and the recent developments that have occurred in relation to corporate governance as it affects insolvent companies
  • in-depth consideration of the role of creditors, shareholders, the Insolvency Service, special managers and creditors’ committees during periods of insolvency as well as the role and functions of directors and insolvency practitioners who are the main focus

Offering critical advice and bringing awareness of important issues, Corporate Governance and Insolvency will be a key reference work for lawyers and insolvency practitioners. The legal analysis provided will also be valuable to academics and students of corporate and insolvency law and governance.
