A comprehensive guide to personal insolvency law in Ireland, this book will be invaluable to both legal and personal insolvency practitioners. The Personal Insolvency Act 2012 introduced new debt resolution mechanisms which are explained in clear detail in the book.
Personal Insolvency can be a complex area for practitioners. A substantial body of High Court jurisprudence has developed in light of legislative amendments arising in the main from the introduction of the s 115A application procedure established under the 2015 Amendment Act. This is the first text to explain the development of the law and explores how the Act is interpreted and implemented having regard also to case law and practice notes issued by the Insolvency Service of Ireland.
The book demonstrates with real case examples how personal insolvency law can be utilised with family law to overcome problematic debt issues that family law legislation cannot resolve on its own.
This title is a must-have for any Personal Insolvency Practitioner, solicitor, barrister, Approved Intermediary, financial institution, accountant or debt adviser.
This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Irish Banking and Finance Law online service.
