Chapter 4 provides an overview and analysis of the Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, and discusses how the US and UK have differed in implementing the Model Law in their respective jurisdictions. This chapter includes a brief examination of the objectives and scope of the Model Law, examines key aspects of the US and English versions as enacted, and discusses why there appears to be a growing divergence in the way in which the Model Law is applied in the US and UK. In doing so, Chapter 4 provides a history of chapter 15 of the US Bankruptcy Code, and examines recent developments in chapter 15 case law, before considering the UK’s Cross-Border Insolvency Regulations (CBIR) and the implications of recent changes in UK restructuring law for the court’s approach to the CBIR.
