The purpose of the master's thesis was to verify the legal regulation of the awards of liquidation trustees. For this purpose, the legal theory regarding bankruptcy, the regulation of the liquidation trustees' awards, the statistics on bankruptcy procedures and rewards to the trustees were reviewed. For the purpose of the task, 120 completed bankruptcies were examined in order to determine whether the awards of the liquidation trustees were appropriate and how different the characteristics of bankruptcy procedures, for example, the number and total amount of claims declared, the number of procedural acts are in correlation to the award in an individual case. I have found that the valid bankruptcy legislation prevents excessive awards, which have been paid in a few cases in the past and that in comparable cases the awards are also relatively equivalent. I think that the current arrangement is appropriate. I also believe that bankruptcy proceedings could be more effective insofar as creditors would have more room for maneuver in influencing bankruptcy proceedings. Regarding the amount of the liquidation trustees' awards, however, minor corrections of the current system probably would be required, reflecting the actual complexity and the work of the liquidation trustee in the concrete procedure.
