  • 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
