The increasingly complex capital structures of corporates the world over, coupled with an evolving body of financial players wanting to enhance stakeholder value and ensure returns for their investors, will doubtless make restructurings and insolvencies more complicated and time consuming in the future. These changes take place extremely quickly, which makes an up-to-date and comprehensive guide through the myriad of legal and financial complexities an absolute necessity to operate in today's market rather than a dispensable luxury.
The primary purpose of the journal since its inception was to add a level of practitioner value on a range of corporate rescue and insolvency issues covering a multitude of jurisdictions that would make International Corporate Rescue one of the most relevant corporate restructuring and insolvency/bankruptcy journals in the marketplace. It aims to do this by understanding and commenting on the factors affecting global economic change and the ramifications of change.
The journal also seeks to inform and influence opinion in a variety of areas ranging from the trading desks of special situations teams at investment and commercial banks to the restructuring profession (accountancy, legal and financial) and the academic world.
To reflect the needs of the marketplace, International Corporate Rescue is structured to include:
- Topical guest editorial
- A range of articles covering many aspects of corporate recovery and insolvency law and practice from across the globe
- US Corner
- Economists' Outlook
- Case Review section
The articles are sourced from as many different contributors as possible to get a cross-section of comment and opinion, and is broad enough to cover industry perspectives yet specialised enough to provide in-depth analysis to practitioners facing these issues on a day-to-day basis.
The coverage and analysis published in the journal is truly international and reaches the key jurisdictions where there is corporate rescue activity within the core regions of North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australasia.
Since it was launched in January 2004, International Corporate Rescue has been relied on by practitioners, financiers and lawyers throughout the world and is designed to help:
- better understanding of the practical implications of insolvency and business failure and the risk of operating in certain markets.
- keep the reader up to date with relevant developments in international business and trade, legislation, regulation and litigation
- identify and assess potential problems and avoid costly mistakes
