"A reliable guide for cross-border recovery of claims, in civil, commercial, and administrative matters. Very useful for practitioners."
Armenopoulos 2014 - Apostolos Anthimos
'To sum up the book is very readable not only for the one who is especially interested in international insolvency law but also for the one who is generally interested in law. Not least the historical parts provide the reader a good understanding of how national legal systems in different States and cooperation between States work or not work.'
