A Global View of Business Insolvency Systems

We live in an age of economic turmoil. The recent crises emphasize the need for modern, sophisticated rules to govern businesses in financial distress in order to realize value from distressed companies and to protect economic institutions. This book provides information for legislators, policymakers, lawyers, accountants, academics, and administrators who seek to understand the workings of insolvency laws. Guided by the World Bank's Principles and Guidelines, it supplements the work in this field done by UNCITRAL.
