The last decade has witnessed an unprecedented growth in insolvency law in many parts of the world. A deep and prolonged recession in Europe, the USA, Japan and beyond has fuelled the development of sophisticated and conceptually complex sets of laws aimed at coping with the consequences of business failure. The existence of an almost simultaneous programme of reform proposals and pressure for further changes in a number of jurisdictions is therefore not mere coincidence, but reflects the global character of the problems caused by corporate collapse.;It is of immense importance to lawyers and insolvency practitioners that they are able to understand recent developments in insolvency law in a number of jurisdictions, and that they are aware of what is happening internationally to improve procedures and methods to deal with new problems. This collection of essays covers recent developments in a number of jurisdictions and looks also at developments of the leading corporate insolvency specialists in the USA, UK, Australia, Japan and Canada.
