This unique work provides a practical guide to the duties and liabilities of one of the key parties involved in the insolvency procedure, the insolvency practitioner. Unlike other texts it looks exclusively at the role of the insolvency practitioner, providing a tightly focused and detailed examination of the relevant issues, including the interaction between the insolvency practitioner and other professionals involved in the insolvency.

It fully reflects recent legislative changes, including the new insolvency regime introduced by the Enterprise Act 2002 and European legislation, most notably the EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings. Important issues arising from the Human Rights Act 1998 are also explained.

  • The only text to focus specifically on the role of the insolvency practitioner
  • Clearly explains duties and liabilities throughout the insolvency process
  • Up to date with recent radical changes in insolvency legislation.
