With schemes of arrangement now the favoured tool in complex cross-border corporate restructuring, this new work provides in-depth guidance on the legal principles, formal procedures and practical questions facing practitioners.

It is a specifically practical text featuring extensive precedent material and detailed case studies of schemes in operation.

  • Explains the different types of scheme available, including 'pre-pack' schemes, assessing their comparative advantages and disadvantages
  • Explores the underlying legal principles, including 'timing' and 'compromise'
  • Sets out a 'three-stage' guide to schemes, from first court-hearing through to the 'sanction hearing'
  • Goes through each stage of the scheme process in detail
  • Features extensive precedents, including examples of schemes, letters, claim forms, statements, court orders, proxies and expert opinions, and hearing materials
  • Illustrates the issues covered by reference to detailed UK, US and European case studies compiled from the author's experience
  • Deals with the complex cross-border and jurisdictional issues facing practitioners
  • Discusses how to get multi-national schemes recognised
  • Looks at the involvement of COMI in the recognition process
  • Examines bondholder issues
  • Looks at common issues with schemes including competition, pensions, regulation, accounting, confidentiality and voidability
  • Provides a comparative analysis with other procedures including CVAs and Administrations
