Applications to Wind Up Companies by Derek French
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The second edition of Applications to Wind Up Companies provides practitioners with an up to date and in-depth treatment of the law relating to applications to wind up companies. As such it is the only work to focus specifically on this aspect of corporate and insolvency law. This long-awaited new edition deals with the procedure for obtaining a winding-up order chronologically from presentation of a petition through to making the order. It also looks at the application process as it applies to various classes of petitioner, such as creditors, contributories (shareholders) and public officials. The book covers companies registered under the Companies Acts and all other entities, including insolvent partnerships and foreign companies, which may be wound up under the Insolvency Act 1986. It also deals with administration applications. Though focused on the procedure in the courts of England and Wales, the work also considers the jurisprudence of the many Commonwealth jurisdictions which have adopted the English procedure. A particular feature of the book is its analysis of the matters which are taken into account in the exercise of discretion, an aspect of the equitable jurisdiction applied to winding-up applications.
