Since the Bamber case highlighted the perils of assuming that Civil Procedure Rules forms could be used in company cases, the quirky practices and procedures of the Companies Court have retained a jealously guarded mystique.
Corporate Insolvency Practice provides an easy to follow `how to do it' guide for all the most common court applications in corporate insolvency. Covering areas as diverse as winding up petitions to administrations to the reuse of company names the book seeks to give the inside track on what the court will expect both in terms of practice and evidence. The book fully incorporates the changes implemented by the Companies Act 2006 and the recent amendments to the Insolvency Rules 1986. With precedents, checklists and the key statutory and practice note extracts set out for each application, the book will prove an invaluable guide for practitioners making insolvency applications in the Companies Court.
