About Current Issues in European Financial and Insolvency Law

Recent case-law and legislation in European company and insolvency law have significantly furthered the integration of European business regulation. In particular, the case-law of the European Court of Justice and the introduction of the EU Insolvency Regulation have provided the stimulus for current reforms in various jurisdictions in the fields of insolvency and financial law. The UK, for instance, has adopted the Enterprise Act in 2002, designed, inter alia, to enhance enterprise and to strengthen the UK's approach to bankruptcy and corporate rescue. In a similar vein, a recent reform in France has modernised French insolvency law and even introduced a tool similar to the successful English 'company voluntary arrangement' (CVA).

This book provides a collection of studies by some of the leading English and French experts today, analysing current perspectives of insolvency and financial law in Europe, both on the national as well as on the European level.

“...provides very valuable insights for this highly topical and practically relevant discussion. The authors, without exception, have to be praised for their enlightening contributions to the debate on European financial and insolvency law.” –  Felix Steffek, European Business Organization Law Review, Volume 12

“This is a fascinating book. It raises a whole host of discussion points ... about the merits of empirics, about the value of comparative research, about the cultural specificity of norms and about particular insolvency sticking points. I am pleased to recommend it.” –  Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly, Gerard McCormack
