Abstract

This review considers two recently published texts, Company Directors' Responsibilities to Creditors by Andrew Keay, hereafter identified as Keay's text, and Directors' Duties During Insolvency by Allens Arthur Robinson, hereafter identified as Allens' text. Where possible comparisons are drawn between the two texts in an attempt to determine if the authors have achieved their stated objectives.

At first glance, Keay's text may be pigeonholed as an academic text, while Allens' may be considered an insolvency practitioner's guide. However, both texts contain elements of interest for academics and insolvency practitioners alike.

Keywords: Company Directors' Responsibilities, Creditors, Insolvency
