Now in its sixth edition, this indispensable handbook guides practitioners step-by-step through personal insolvency law, as overhauled by the Insolvency Act 1986 and subsequent cases. This edition expands and revises the coverage of partnership insolvency and individual voluntary arrangements, and benefits from the author's practical experience.

Specific coverage includes:-
* An update of the Individual Voluntary Arrangements chapter, in keeping with key case law with precedents for all the forms required to achieve approval of such an arrangement
* Inclusion of human rights aspects (ie. redirecting a bankrupt's mail)
* Important case law concerning failure to levy execution, sale of a cause of action by a trustee, deceased's insolvent estate, and liability of solicitor for wasted costs of unsuccessful proceedings
* Developments in other areas including statutory demands, opposition to bankruptcy petitions, failed voluntary arrangements, forms and a list of courts.
