This book deals with the procedure for obtaining a winding-up order chronologically from presentation of a petition through to making the order. It also looks at the application process as it applies to various classes of petitioner, such as creditors, contributories (shareholders) and publicofficials. The third edition is completely updated to cover new legislation and new procedures. It includes new coverage of winding up through administrations, winding up insolvent partnerships other than as unregistered companies, and considers the practice and procedure issues of industry-specificadministration regimes (from water companies to energy supply companies) and their interaction with winding up.Though focused on the procedure in the courts of England and Wales, the work also considers the jurisprudence of the many Commonwealth jurisdictions which have adopted the English procedure. This work contains all there is to know about applying (petitioning) to have companies and similar entitieswound up by the court, making it essential for all lawyers who make, or defend, such applications.
Derek French is principal author of 29 editions of Mayson, French and Ryan on Company Law, editor of 16 editions of Blackstone's Statutes on Company Law, and co-editor of 13 editions of Blackstone's Civil Practice.
