Personal insolvency law can be a complex area for practitioners and this title will guide you through the Personal Insolvency process which was introduced to Ireland following the last economic crash by way of The Personal Insolvency Act 2012. The Insolvency Service of Ireland was established in 2013 and they began processing insolvency applications in the last quarter of 2013. The process was slow to take off as the banks held a de facto veto on the process and so, the Act was amended in 2015 to allow for an appeal process. Since then a large body of High Court jurisprudence has been developed (55 delivered decision to date). This is the first text to explain the development of the law in light of court jurisprudence and legislative amendments. The High Court jurisprudence has developed to such an extent that this title will be a must-have for any practitioner. It includes a comprehensive overview of the The Personal Insolvency Amendment Act 2021, case analysis and a guide and tips for practitioners navigating this tricky area of law. The author, Alan McGee, is a solicitor and personal insolvency practitioner with vast experience in the area.
