Onder de titel "De bewindvoerder, een octopus" verschijn dit najaar een bundel artikel gewijd aan het Voorontwerp Insolventierecht. Aan mij was verzocht een aantal verplichtingen van de bewindvoerder te belichten. Zie bijgaande proef.
The EU Insolvency Regulation contains 5 categories of judgments for which the international jurisdiction of the court, its recognition and its enforcement in other Member States is regulated differently. The complexities of this system is recognised and courts of the highest instance of the Member States of Spain, Poland, Germany and recently the Netherlands have referred questions to the European Court of Justice. During lectures at the Riga Graduate School of Law in July these questions were discussed. For an overview, see the attached article, to be published in Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Handelsrecht, september/oktober of de aflevering daarna.
