25 May 2022

We are delighted to announce that Alaric Watson‘s book, Individual Voluntary Arrangements: Law & Practice has been published by Edward Elgar Publishing.

With individual voluntary arrangements assuming an increasingly dominant position within personal insolvency law over the last 35 years, this timely book presents a concise yet authoritative guide to this formal debt relief mechanism. It analyses the statutory framework and how this has been interpreted and applied by the courts, as well as the policies that guide it.

Key features:

  • Overview of the essential nature of the law and its effect on the debtor, the creditors and third parties
  • Focus on the law as it currently stands, together with an analysis of how this has changed and developed
  • Review of primary documents, including the proposal and the statement of affairs
  • Examination of the procedures involved, the statutory framework in which those procedures are embedded, and the interpretation of this framework that has been applied by the courts

Providing an informed and extensive review of the law, it will be invaluable to insolvency practitioners, lawyers, and judges working with individual voluntary arrangements. Accessible and concise in its analysis, it will also be useful to students and scholars of insolvency law researching voluntary arrangements.
