Corporate Insolvency Law, 2nd edition

A Comparative Textbook

Book | 2nd edition 2023 | World | Reinhard Bork

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.

The 2nd edition covers the latest case law and developments in the topic.

“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.”
From the Foreword by Professor Michael Veder, Radboud University
