Cross-Border Insolvency

Fourth Edition

Edited by: Richard Sheldon

This book provides a comprehensive and updated consideration of the topic of cross-border insolvency, guiding the reader seamlessly through this complex area of law. The fourth edition is divided into two parts, with the first section describing the key cross-border insolvency regimes, including the EC Insolvency Regulation, the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, Section 426 of the UK's Insolvency Act 1986, and the common law. The second section of the book focuses on specific issues in more detail, such as the court's insolvency jurisdiction, ancillary winding up, enforcement of foreign insolvency judgments, foreign discharge of debts, and insolvency set-off. Cross-Border Insolvency also provides a full analysis of the fundamental changes to cross-border insolvency law and practice in England. [Subject: European Law, Insolvency Law]
