PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Description: 

The added value of the two day-long training consist of delivering in-depth insights on highly specialized topics pertaining to diversified aspects of Cross-border Insolvency.

Cross-border insolvency is more concerned with the insolvency of companies which operate in more than one country rather than the bankruptcy of individuals. Like traditional conflict of laws rules, cross-border insolvency focuses upon three areas: choice of law rules, jurisdiction rules and enforcement of judgment rules. However, in relation to insolvency, the principal focus tends to be the recognition of foreign insolvency officials and their powers.  

The training will be carried out by leading academics and practitioners, expert speakers will be called to expand upon such aspects as jurisdiction, applicable law, EU instruments, recognition and enforcement of decisions and cooperation in matters relating to the subjects of the seminar.

This training will combine theoretical lectures with practical workshops based on specialised case-studies and will serve as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and best practices between judges from across the EU.
