This new edition of Transaction Avoidance in Insolvencies considers a range of practical issues that arise in a typical transaction avoidance case as well as all the possible ways in which a vulnerable transaction might be attacked, in recognition of the fact that the provisions contained in the Insolvency Act 1986 might not always be the only possibilities available.
Fully updated to cover legislative amendments arising from the Enterprise Act 2002 and the Companies Act 2006, as well as coverage of the 2009 changes to Insolvency Rules 1986, the book provides a timely resource for insolvency practitioners following the upturn in insolvency cases brought about by the economic crisis.
Including new specialist material on property-related aspects and on transactions involving complex financial structures including swaps and derivatives, this book is essential reading for insolvency practitioners as well as company directors, banks, academics and postgraduate students of insolvency law.

This is a major work. Any practitioner in this area should have access to it if only because it remains a deep and serious study of the key topics within the core areas. It also acts as a wake-up call to readers to reconsider areas which other textbooks very often do not cover and it does so with the awareness and practical insight that these areas clearly deserve. * David Marks QC, International Company and Commercial Law Review *
