. . . a highly readable and informative text and an excellent addition to insolvency scholarship. . . In their entirety, the chapters of Corporate Rescue Law An Anglo-American Perspective represent one of the most incisive and relevant treatments of comparative insolvency regimes to date. . . This book is an absolute boon: it provides the reader with a mass of legal and practical insights into the workings of two ostensibly divergent systems and challenges received wisdom in a fluent and persuasive manner. Not only are legal differences examined through the lens of practice, but also commercial, philosophical and social responses to failure are considered and highlighted as possible drivers of those real distinctions that do exist. Professor McCormack has produced an exceptional work that should be required reading for academics, practitioners and policy makers alike, and is to be warmly congratulated. Sandra Frisby, Banking and Finance Law Review The issues are well chosen. They are easily the most important aspects of any corporate rescue law. The careful analysis of the technical provisions, the incorporation of the extensive scholarship on the two corporate rescue regimes and the reference to practice in the real world all help to make these chapters an indispensable tool for any scholar wishing to gain a better understanding of the similarities and differences of English and American corporate rescue laws. . . This monograph could not have come at a better time. . . The comparative account in this book will help law reformers, judges and scholars to have a better grasp of the issues and appreciate better how the two systems have dealt with them. . . Comparative law has a critical role to play in promoting mutual understanding and respect. It is hoped that this monograph will help in that respect. Wee Meng Seng, Singapore Journal of Legal Studies This book offers an unprecedented and detailed comparative critique of Anglo-American corporate bankruptcy law. It challenges the standard characterisation that US law in the sphere of corporate bankruptcy is pro-debtor and UK law is pro-creditor , and suggests that the traditional thesis is, at best, a potentially misleading over-simplification. Gerard McCormack offers the conclusion that there is functional convergence in practice, while acknowledging that corporate rescue, as distinct from business rescue, still plays a larger role in the US. The focus is on corporate restructurings with in-depth scrutiny of Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code and the UK Enterprise Act, and offers other comparative oversights. Integrating theoretical and practical insights, this book will be of great interest to academics and practitioners, and also to policymakers in the DTI, Insolvency Service and regulatory bodies.

This paper provides an overview of key elements of Corporate Bankruptcy Codes and Practice around the world that are relevant to the debate on Sovereign Debt Restructuring. It highlights four components common to most bankruptcy reorganization institutions: a stay on debt collection efforts to prevent a costly run for the assets, broad enforcement of absolute priority, majority voting among creditors on the proposed reorganization plan, and new higher priority financing to keep the firm going while its liabilities are restructured. The paper argues that these components ought to be present in any sovereign debt restructuring procedure.

In recent years the professions have undergone radical transformation. With the advent of rapidly changing markets, more sophisticated and demanding clients, deregulation and increased competition, the generalist professional partnerships have given way to larger, more corporate forms of organization, comprising increasingly autonomous specialist business units. This volume critically examines these changes through an examination of the archetypes which characterize accounting, health care and law practitioners. With examples drawn from Australia, Canada, the UK and the USA, Restructuring the Professional Organization will be of interest to all students of organization studies seeking to understand the issues and problems confronting the professions as they move to the new millennium. Topics covered include: * a review of the models of professional organization *drivers of change in professional organizations * internal dynamics of changes in these organizations * new organizational forms and archetypes.

Many official groups have endorsed the wider use by emerging market borrowers of contract clauses which allow for a qualified majority of bondholders to restructure repayment terms in the event of financial distress. Some have argued that such clauses will be associated with moral hazard and increased borrowing costs. This paper addresses this question empirically using primary and secondary market yields and finds no evidence that the presence of collective action clauses increases yields for either higher- or lower-rated issuers. By implication, the perceived benefits from easier restructuring are at least as large as any costs from increased moral hazard.
