Abstract

[Extract] In Cross-Border Insolvency: Principles and Practice, the author calls upon years of experience as a practitioner to coherently explain the interrelationship between these various statutory provisions and the
common law, while simultaneously demonstrating inconsistencies in the existing case law.
While many impactful works have been written regarding cross-border insolvency law, this book fills a gap in the existing literature by comprehensively addressing the issue from an English conflict of laws perspective. Sections discussing the interplay between European and English law will be of particular significance to English practitioners and academics. However, 'a large part of cross-border insolvency law concerns the circumstance in which insolvency proceedings commenced in one jurisdiction are given effect in another
jurisdiction.' As such, the book calls upon numerous jurisdictions in discussing the interpretation of the Model Law as adopted in the United Kingdom and is an invaluable resource for insolvency practitioners and academics.
