First published in 1869, Kerr & Hunter on Receivers and Administrators is acknowledged as the classic text on the law of receivers and administrators as it applies to both corporate and personal insolvency. It is frequently cited in court. It guides practitioners through all matters relating to administrators and receivers – when/how/why they are appointed, and the various situations in which they are deployed.

The new 20th edition has been completely revised and rewritten by a new author team, restructuring the work to reflect modern workflows and make it easier to consult in court.

  • Explains the implications of wide-ranging recent case law
  • Provides comprehensive coverage of taxation in receivership and administration
  • Deals with cross-border insolvency issues relating to the EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings, the UNICITRAL Modal Law and the US Chapter 15 procedure
  • Contains a separate section covering the law in Scotland
