Kerr & Hunter on Receivers and Administrators, 20th Edition
£285 GBP*
First published in 1869, Kerr & Hunter on Receivers and Administrators is acknowledged as the classic text on the law of receivers and administrators as it applies to both corporate and personal insolvency, and is frequently cited in court. It guides practitioners through all matters relating to administrators and receivers – when/how/why they are appointed, and the various situations in which they are deployed. The work has been updated to incorporate all legislative and case law developments since the previous edition.
  • Provides a one-stop source on the law of receivers and administrators in insolvency

  • Examines the law on floating charges following the Spectrum decision
  • Considers the first case law on administrations set up with improper motive
  • Looks at conflict situations arising under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002
  • Explains the still-controversial Pre-Pack Procedure for the selling of the business of the company-in-administration
  • Deals with cross-border insolvency issues relating the EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings, the UNICITRAL Modal Law and the US Chapter 15 procedure
  • Contains a separate section covering the law in Scotland
