Choice of law clauses — Applicable law — Insolvency

This chapter examines insolvency in the context of the European Union Regulation on insolvency proceedings (recast). The recast Regulation, which will apply to insolvency proceedings opened after 26 June 2017, deals with public collective insolvency proceedings. It distinguishes between main insolvency proceedings and secondary insolvency proceedings when it comes to international jurisdiction. This chapter begins with a discussion of the main insolvency proceedings jurisdiction and secondary insolvency proceedings jurisdiction, along with checks on jurisdiction and the extent of jurisdiction. It then considers the general choice of law rule contained in the Regulation, along with the recognition of insolvency proceedings. It also looks at issues arising from the insolvency of groups of companies and their members.
