Critical Acclaim
‘This book makes an important and timely contribution to a neglected yet vital area. In the first book-length treatment of the subject, Professor Keay draws together the theory and practice in a way that is comprehensive and learned, while simultaneously concise and readable. Following several recent appellate cases on dissolution and restoration, this is the perfect opportunity to take stock. It is highly recommended as an essential reference for corporate and insolvency lawyers, insolvency practitioners, creditors and litigation funders.’
– Joseph Curl QC, 9 Stone Buildings, Lincoln's Inn and and Deputy Insolvency and Companies Court Judge, England and Wales

‘I have little doubt that it will ultimately be established as the vade mecum for busy practitioners in this field. It contains a scholarly exposition of the legislation and its governing principles. It is comprehensive in scope and presented in a way that is well structured and easy to follow. It is also a useful source for the guidance of the courts on obscure but important collateral issues which sometimes arise in practice. . . The book is a significant achievement and Professor Keay is to be commended for it.’
– From the foreword by His Honour Judge Mark Halliwell, Specialist Circuit Judge, Manchester. England and Wales
