Disqualification Undertakings: Law, Policy and Practice provides authoritative and practical guidance on navigating the undertakings system and the procedures for applying for leave of an undertaking. This is combined with empirical research on reasons cited in schedules of unfit conduct and periods of disqualification, enabling practitioners to advise clients on the most effective strategies when negotiating terms of undertakings.
Disqualification Undertakings: Law, Policy and Practice is the only book focusing solely on undertakings; with the number of corporate insolvencies likely to rise over the next few years, this is an ideal volume for those advising the increasing number of people disqualified from directorships.

The book definitely provides both academics and practitioners with an exceptional tool to explore the nature and implications of disqualification undertakings. By contextualising the current post-2001 regime, the author illustrates the theoretical background to the procedure, which is a fundamental step for engaging in further reflections on the socio-economic nature and effects of the undertaking system. The second part of the monograph is also of great value as it offers an ideal platform to understand the practical mechanisms under which disqualification undertakings operate, and to assess eventually the extent of their success.."

"an interesting analysis of recent provisions for disqualifications of directors found committing breaches of the competition law via court order or through and undertaking...
Overall, this book gives a comprehensive account of disqualifications against miscreant directors not usually found in conventional corporate law texts. The book is written in simple but effective language and hence should not deter those with worries over the use of technical language. Each chapter begins with a clear introduction and ends with an excellent chapter summary.... The book is worthwhile having especially when there are no good alternatives available pertaining to the topic in question."

"Overall, the book is an intresting read. The book is evidence of much work and effort on the part of the author. The book does make a worthy contribution to the analysis of its subject-matter..."
