2015-11-doc11 2nd edition of ‘Cross-border Insolvency Law, International Instruments and Commentary’

Recently, the second edition of ‘Cross-border Insolvency Law, International Instruments and Commentary’ (Bob Wessels & Gert-Jan Boon, eds.) was published. See The first edition (in 2007) has been regarded as ‘… an invaluable and quite unique reference text of international insolvency instruments and related texts…’ (Professor Paul Omar, Nottingham Law School), and ‘This book saves … cumbersome search for sources and offers an excellent entry to the core texts of international insolvency law’ (Dr. Andreas Geroldinger, associate professor University of Linz, Austria). 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. The book collects over fifty international and regional legal instruments relating to insolvency of companies as well as to corporate rescue law. The book includes international and regional (Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe) conventions, model laws, 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, INSOL International, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, EBRD), and international and European restatements of insolvency law by scholars, including the most recent EU Cross-border Insolvency Court-to-Court Cooperation Principles. In addition the editors provide a over 130 pages insightful commentary covering, the key issues of each text, its latest amendments and revisions, and comparative analysis of the covered instruments.
