The collapse of the Celtic Tiger saw an unprecedented number of Irish companies enter into corporate insolvency proceedings. This in turn necessitated practitioners, directors and shareholders alike to become aware of the various mechanisms under Irish law for dealing with insolvent companies, namely receivership, examinership and liquidation.

Corporate Insolvency and Rescue (3rd Ed) by Irene Lynch-Fannon and Gerard Murphy provides a detailed consideration of the consolidated position on corporate insolvency in Ireland as it appears under the Companies Act 2014, making this title an invaluable resource for busy practitioners.

Other titles in this area include Summary Judgement in Ireland: Principles and Defences by Pat J Barrett and Buying and Selling Insolvent Companies and Businesses in Ireland by Bill Holohan, Ger O’ Mahony and Ted Harding.
