Recent insolvency cases highlight the growing importance of cross-border insolvency matters in international transactions.

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.
