The third and latest edition of Farid Assaf's Winding Up in Insolvency is now available for pre-order from Lexis Nexis. Earlier editions of the book have been frequently cited by Superior Courts throughout Australia.

The new work provides comprehensive treatment of all aspects of winding up in insolvency including establishing insolvency, practical issues relating to issuing and setting aside statutory demands, making and opposing winding up applications. The new edition also covers recent amendments made to the Corporations Act by the Corporations Amendment (Corporate Insolvency Reforms) Act 2020 (Cth) and temporary amendments made in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Hon. Justice Ashley Black of the Supreme Court of NSW has contributed the foreword.

Farid was admitted to the NSW Bar in 2000 and appointed Silk in 2018. He is a Fellow on Insol International (with Honours, first in class), and is also the author of Assaf on Statutory Demands. Farid has been described as a "tremendously effective counsel" with "encyclopaedic knowledge of the law" by Chambers & Partners.
