Paul McGrath QC’s second edition of “Commercial Fraud in Civil Practice”, just published by the Oxford University Press (OUP), builds on the excellent reputation earned by the first as a comprehensive and practical work focussing on civil law claims and remedies. As well as attracting very favourable reviews, the first edition has been most recently cited by Eder J in the Otkritie judgment.
The book’s aim is to provide clear answers for practitioners whilst being willing to tackle some of the more complex and difficult areas such as proprietary remedies. The book covers all aspects of international commercial fraud litigation, ranging from issues of conflict laws, pre-emptive remedies (e.g. freezing orders, interim receivers, Norwich Pharmacal Orders), contentious insolvency litigations, to tracing assets.
The publication of this second edition coincides with the author, Paul McGrath, speaking at the C5 Fraud, Asset Tracing and Recovery in Geneva this week. Paul is acting as Moderator for the Day Two panel on “Modern techniques to ensure compliance with orders: lessons learnt from Ablyazov and other recent cases” with fellow Essex Court Chambers’ member David Davies being part of the panel.
