Abstract

In this monograph, the authors review “basic precepts about the protection of creditors by the great majority of U.K. corporations that are registered with limited liability.” (p. ix) In addition to examining the framework of U.K. company and insolvency laws, the authors include insights obtained through interviews of several individuals from a variety of organizations, and provide 24 recommendations for improving creditor protection in the U.K. The authors note in the preface that this monograph has been drafted with several readerships in mind: accountants, auditors, lawyers dealing with corporate clients, U.K. insolvency practitioners, bankers and financiers, and company directors and advisors.
