Workshops – Insolvency

“The quest for coordination of proceedings in cross border insolvency cases (The new EU regulation on transnational insolvency. The Uncitral Rules: concrete applications).”

Untitledgiuseppe scotti

General reporters: Hector Sbert Perez and Giuseppe Scotti

Main insolvency proceedings and secondary proceedings can only contribute to the effective realization of the total assets if all the concurrent proceedings pending are coordinated. The main condition here is that the various liquidators must cooperate closely, in particular by exchanging a sufficient amount of information. In order to ensure the dominant role of the main insolvency proceedings, the liquidators in such proceedings should be given several possibilities for intervening in secondary insolvency proceedings which are pending at the same time. During the workshop experienced insolvency practitioners having an international exposure will explore through a lively discussion and a case study the interactions between domestic legislation and international regulations and guidelines. The main goal shall be not only to scrutinize the complications associated with cross border insolvency
proceedings through a thoughtful discussion about concrete issues and matters, but also to verify whether or not the quest for coordination in insolvency proceedings has been attained.
