The most thorough book available on the subject of Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs) law and practise, this volume includes examination of contemporary case law and legislation.
CVAs were first employed as a straightforward restructuring tool for small firms in the 1980s, but they are now utilised in a broad range of situations, including by enterprises with leasehold commitments for real estate. Due to the challenges brought on by the Covid 19 epidemic, several well-known companies have aimed to benefit from the flexibility of the technique. The book analyses recent rulings, including Debenhams, New Look, and Regis, identifying the legal rules that were utilised. In the framework of the legislation, practical features of CVAs are taken into account, including comparisons of the relative advantages and drawbacks of a CVA and the new restructuring plan method under Part 26A of the Companies Act 2006.
Leading restructuring attorneys from the UK (in cooperation with insolvency attorneys and accountants), UK property attorneys, and foreign attorneys from Ireland, the USA, and Canada wrote this document.
All bankruptcy and restructuring experts, private equity investors, special circumstances investment and real estate funds, property agents and advisers, management teams, and scholars should consult this book as a vital resource.
