The revised edition of Corporate insolvency: employment and pension rights provides an in-depth analysis of the law relating to insolvency as it interacts with employment and pensions law.
Rather than dividing these areas of practice into distinct specialisations, the book focuses on problems that might arise when two or more areas meet.
Written by Freshfields partner and former chairman of the Association of Pensions Lawyers David Pollard, the new edition draws together legislation, case law, analysis and commentary.
It provides guidance on the Equality Act 2010, The Pensions Regulator's moral hazard powers, case law on pre-packs, provable debts, and the definitions of workers and employers, cases on moratorium in insolvency and insolvency provisions in TUPE 2006.
Priced at £155, Corporate insolvency is aimed at solicitors and barristers practicing in corporate insolvency, employment law or pensions law.
