About European Insolvency & Restructuring

In the course of the internationalisation of the business world, there are more and more companies whose activities are not limited to the national level. For this reason, cross-border conflicts regularly arise when companies become insolvent. This blog therefore discusses issues relating to European insolvency and restructuring. Essentially, it will deal with the legal framework that encompasses this area. The blog will report on recent court decisions, current developments and new scientific findings of practical relevance. It will cover national as well as transnational law.
