Research interests

The intricacies of available corporate rescue strategies and the need for an efficient rescue system in the sphere of corporate rescue sparked my interest in pursuing this thesis. The examination of the corporate rescue procedure in the UK is a great opportunity to widen my knowledge as well as contribute to the existing knowledge and framework of the rescue system. This thesis will seek to examine the administration procedure as regards the inherent rescue goal that exists in the procedure and how it has changed drastically. To this end, this thesis poses the following questions:

1. Can the reformed administration procedure be described as promoting/increasing corporate rescue?

2. How does the UK insolvency regime operate in practice and what are its consequences for corporate rescue? Should paragraph 3 of the Insolvency Act 1986 be revisited?

Addressing the questions in this thesis brings about interesting questions as to how the research is to be conducted. This thesis aims to incorporate a doctrinal approach as well as the inclusion of empirical studies. It is anticipated that with the empirical studies to be conducted, a broader view of the problem’s facing the administration procedure will be understood and possibly will open the door for reforming and rethinking the procedure.
