Guide to banking and insolvency law September 2007

United Kingdom

Welcome to the September issue of The Heavyweight.

A few things to note this month:

  • There is a digestible summary of the sections of the Companies Act 2006 that come into force on Monday, 1 October. Take a look, too, at my Bank Law Blog post, "Banking bits of CA 06" with brief comment on the effect the changes will have on bank documentation and policy;
  • Securities Lending Code of Best Practice - the International Corporate Governance Network has published a revised version of its Securities Lending Code of Best Practice;
  • The Insolvency Service has issued a consultation paper setting out its proposals to modernise the law governing insolvency procedure.
