Pilkington on Creditor Schemes of Arrangement and Restructuring Plans provides in-depth guidance on the legal principles, formal procedures and practical issues which underpin the use of schemes of arrangements and the new ‘restructuring plan’ option as used in complex financial restructurings. The expert author team at White & Case, under Christian Pilkington, cover the subject in full, taking in its development and the fundamental principles of its use as a restructuring tool, alongside key subjects such as jurisdiction, class composition issues and foreign recognition. Practical in its focus, the book provides not only diagrams and flowcharts which summarise complex processes but also case studies to illustrate different types of schemes of arrangement and explain some of the most high-profile international restructurings of recent years.
Schemes have become instrumental in the restructuring of UK and overseas-incorporated companies, and can still be recognised in different European jurisdictions even after Brexit. This combined with the new restructuring plan that builds on the scheme idea (and was introduced by CIGA 2020) make Pilkington an essential text for your insolvency library.
