Insolvency Law Series
Vernon Dennis
Availability: Published

Administration focuses on corporate rescue through the appointment of an administrator. Administration is now by far the most commonly used process to effect business rescue by reconstruction, refinance and/or sale of the insolvent company's business and assets. The book discusses issues including the:

  • effectiveness of the procedure in achieving business rescue compared to company rescue
  • pros and cons of using the administration process
  • reasons for and the consequences of the rise in pre-pack administration
  • key judicial debate over the costs and expenses of administration
  • treatment of creditors and third parties during the administration process
  • future of regulation in this area of law.

The book will prove invaluable to those advising companies, directors, creditors, customers and suppliers to businesses who may be initiating and/or considering the initiation of an administration process.


‘If you are looking for a practical guide to administration, you should look no further than Vernon Dennis' Administration.’
