Product description

Gain critical insights on the current status of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act from legal expert, Frank Bennett.
For more than 20 years, Bennett on Bankruptcy has been a reliable and practical guide, and serves as your quickest reference to the substantive law in this area.

To better suit the research needs of bankruptcy and insolvency practitioners and professionals, this 22nd (2020) Edition now brings to you a Companion Volume which contains OSB Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act forms for persons to which the 2009 amendments apply and historical OSB Policies and Circulars that may still be relevant to bankruptcy administration.

Frank Bennett provides you with explanatory notes to point out many of the leading cases on a particular section or rule. The case references are helpful as they give you background in the particular area and the legal principles involved.
