This second edition provides updated and practical analysis of restructuring under English and New York Law.Since the publication of the previous edition, certain areas of restructuring law have received particular attention. Waivers, amendments, and standstills, and in particular "snooze and lose" and "yank the bank" provisions have continued to develop in the last five years as well as other refinementsfrom the US which are being increasingly used in Europe. The mechanisms for giving effect to debt compromise arrangements, either through Schemes of Arrangement or Chapter 11 pre-packs, have also developed significantly on recent years. There has been a great deal of debate surrounding restructuringand insolvency law in Europe following the recast EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings and further developments in various European jurisdictions. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to cover these, and all other major developments in the field to provide a complete and up-to-dateguide to restructuring on both sides of the Atlantic. This work provides detailed analysis of areas associated with company restructures including tax and shareholder claims, employee and trade union matters, and pension scheme issues. Additionally the new edition features new or developed chapters on key areas of practical development such as privateequity's role in restructuring and specific issues relating to financial institutions, energy, property, airlines and shipping. With coverage of techniques available to both stressed and distressed companies, as well as looking at specialist markets and key stakeholders, The Law and Practice ofRestructuring in the UK and US is an invaluable guide for banking, finance, and insolvency practitioners and their clients, and both financial institutions and companies looking to restructure debt, and global accountancy firms and law and business schools worldwide.
