The new second edition of Debt Restructuring provides detailed legal analysis of international corporate, banking, and sovereign debt restructuring, from the perspective of both creditors and debtors. It sets out practical guidance to help practitioners, policy-makers and academics tounderstand current developments in debt restructuring, and provides solutions for creditors holding distressed debt and debtor options in a distressed scenario.The Corporate Debt section includes a number of very significant changes such as the UK Supreme Court decision in Eurosail and the disapproval of the "point of no return" test for balance sheet insolvency or the endorsement of the Cheyne Finance decision on cashflow. The changes in treatment ofschemes of arrangement since with the decision in Rodenstock are reflected as are the Recast European Insolvency Regulation (EIR) and the Supreme Court decision in Rubin. In the US chapter the new edition considers the limitations on bankruptcy court jurisdiction in Stern v. Marshall and, in theRadLax case, the right of secured creditors to credit bid in a sale of their collateral under a chapter 11 plan. Other significant case law includes consideration of the various safe harbour provisions of the Bankruptcy Code relating to derivative and other financial instruments and cases concerningthe effect of foreign court orders in the US.In the Bank Resolution section, the UK part also has been substantially amended to reflect the new system of macro and micro prudential oversight with the establishment of the PRA, FCA, FPC, and the FSCS. Additionally it reflects changes introduced by the Financial Services Act 2012 and by theFinancial Services (Banking Reform) Act 2013. Additionally there is a new chapter in this part on the EU framework on the resolution of banks and financial institutions which analyses and explains initiatives such as SRM, and the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive.

Also, this section of the book analyses the adoption of single-limb CACs in the aftermath of the Greek restructuring as well as theproposal for creditor engagement clauses. It also provides full analysis of the EU architecture implemented to prevent a sovereign debt crisis, including the creation of new stabilization mechanisms (EFSF and ESM), and the challenges presented to the single-currency area.

Editorial Reviews

"No less an eminent authority as Philip Wood QC provides the foreword to this work. He rightly says that this work is a major contribution to the practice and the law in a fundamentally important topic. It is, as he rightly says, the law in action, and there can perhaps be no greater tributeto this work than saying that it is not only that but also a very learned and insightful work of scholarship." --David Marks QC, International Company and Commercial Law Review 2003
