Recent insolvency cases highlight the growing importance of cross-border insolvency matters in international transactions. In order to obtain relevant information essential for conducting 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 first time in one source, all important international and regional legal instruments relating to insolvency of companies, financial institutions, and consumers, as well as to corporate rescue law. The book includes international and regional conventions, model laws, EC directives and regulations, 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 editor provides insightful commentary covering such important matters as the following:

  • key issues of each text;
  • expected amendments and revisions; and
  • comparative analysis of instruments.
Online updates will be available several times each year.

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.
