This unique book provides readers with a concise yet rigorous outline of the English corporate insolvency framework as it is practised in domestic and cross-border cases. In doing so, this primer provides clear and accessible guidance on what is often considered to be a highly technical subject.

Throughout the book, Eugenio Vaccari and Emilie Ghio demonstrate how to successfully navigate the uncharted waters of the significantly revised English corporate insolvency rules and procedures. Chapters answer foundational questions in insolvency law, such as: How are companies liquidated in England? How and why are they rescued and restructured? What happens when a company is liquidated or restructured, but has assets and creditors in England and abroad? The book also includes a comprehensive analysis of the sweeping and far-reaching changes to the regulatory framework introduced in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Providing a blend of accessible but detailed guidance and critical discussion, the hybrid nature of English Corporate Insolvency Law: A Primer will make the book an ideal companion for students, practitioners (especially new entrants to the profession) and researchers in the fields of company and insolvency law, both within England and internationally.
Critical Acclaim
‘English Corporate Insolvency Law: A Primer by Eugenio Vaccari and Emilie Ghio is a welcome addition to the literature on corporate insolvency and restructuring. It is written in a very accessible, yet detailed and thoughtful, manner. The authors are justly known as academic experts in this field and have many publications to their credit. In that light, this work should receive due attention as a primer for all those wishing to embark on the study or appreciation of this fascinating and highly topical subject.’
