Item description for The EUropean Insolvency Regulation: Law and Practice by Miguel Virgos & Francisco Garcimartin...
After many years of negotiations among Member States, a uniform set of private international law rules has been established to determine the conduct of cross-border insolvency proceedings within the European Community. This is the European Insolvency Regulation of May 2000. Although each state still retains its own insolvency law, the regulation greatly reduces the risk of opportunistic behaviour by providing certainty as to which European courts have jurisdiction to open insolvency proceedings and which states laws apply, in addition to ensuring the cross-border effectiveness within the EU of the decisions handed down by those courts.
This in-depth commentary offers practitioners in international business transactions and litigation a definitive guide to the workings of the Insolvency Regulation. The authorsone of whom co-wrote the official explanatory report on the 1995 Convention on Insolvency Proceedings, a report that still plays a fundamental hermeneutic roleleave no stone unturned in their probing analysis, which explains in detail such elements as the following:
relationship with other community legal instruments and international conventions;
third-party rights in rem and reservation of title;
contracts relating to immovable property;
employment contracts and relationships;
payment systems and financial markets;
community patents and trademarks;
publication and registration;
lodgement of claims; and
special considerations affecting credit institutions and insurance undertakings.
Company lawyers handling insolvency cases and issues will find nothing comparable to this expert work. Its direct practical usefulness is immediately apparent. In addition, however, it stands out as a preeminent work on a critical and hard-won legal instrument (and by extension on the entire field of European insolvency law) and as such is an essential resource for jurists and legal academics.
