The Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules

In the single-biggest change to insolvency law in a generation, the Insolvency Rules 1986 (IR 1986) are set to be replaced in their entirety in 2016. In a process which has been ongoing since 2006, the new rules will not simply be a renumbering exercise—a number of new rules and procedures will take effect which practitioners will need to get to grips with.

What is the Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules?

At LexisNexis® UK, we have published the Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules, accessible through both Lexis®Library and Lexis®PSL Restructuring and Insolvency. Written by Dr John Tribe and Susan Morgan, the Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules compares, on a rule-by-rule basis, the IR 1986 and the new draft insolvency rules as they were published in July 2015. The Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules will be updated once the new insolvency rules are passed.

Hot topics

To accompany the publication of the Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules, we are taking a high-level look at four ‘hot topics’ in a series of briefings, each of which includes Dr John Tribe and Susan Morgan providing their thoughts in a short webinar. A new briefing will be published every day from Wednesday 30 March 2016 (with two briefings on the first day) and can be accessed by clicking on the links below:
