A must for any lawyer or insolvency practitioner who finds themselves with a Channel Islands connection. In this detailed two part series, insolvency experts from Jersey and Guernsey outline the nature of the jurisdictions and the main corporate insolvency procedures available on these two islands.

Part one gives an introduction to the islands and a run through the nature of the jurisdiction and instances where UK lawyers and IPs may find themselves with a Channel Islands connection.

Part two provides a more detailed look at the powers and duties of office holders appointed as administrators and liquidators, and also considers proposals for insolvency reform for both islands.
