Recent insolvency cases highlight the growing importance of cross-border insolvency matters in international transactions. In order to obtain relevant information essential for conduct in such transactions, an insolvency lawyer needs to have access to the many relevant instruments that have been introduced and implemented in recent years, but that until now have not been available in any single place.
This very useful volume collects, for the second time in one source, all important international and regional legal instruments relating to insolvency of companies and consumers, as well as to corporate rescue law. The book includes international and regional conventions, model laws, EU regulations and directives, uniform rules and guiding principles produced by various international bodies (such as the World Bank, the United Nations Committee on International Trade Law, the American Law Institute, and INSOL International), and international and European restatements of insolvency law by scholars.
In addition to reproducing the complete texts of these instruments, the editors provide insightful commentary covering such important matters as the following: ;
- key issues of each text;
- expected amendments and revisions; and
- comparative analysis of instruments.
A unique resource bringing together core material in the field of cross-border insolvency law and legislation, this book will be welcomed by international insolvency practitioners worldwide.
