Proprietary Rights and Insolvency

Second Edition

Richard Calnan

  • The only book to comprehensively analyse this specialised but important topic in a single volume.
  • Provides clear theoretical grounding in the background and nature of proprietary rights, and the distinction between the creation of proprietary interests over an original asset, a substitute asset, and an unconnected asset.
  • Detailed analysis of cases from other Commonwealth jurisdictions, both as points of comparison to English law and as illustrations of principles where there are no English cases.
  • Includes diagrams of complex cases to aid understanding.

New to this Edition:

  • Evaluates the key development of the decision of the Supreme Court in FHR European Ventures v Cedar Capital Partners.
  • Considers the litigation arising out of the Lehman Brothers administration.
  • Coverage of recent Privy Council and Court of Appeal decisions concerning constructive notice, as well as interesting issues concerning the new status of intangibles, and the status of the anti-deprivation rule.
  • Discusses recent developments in other common law jurisdictions, including Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.
