The new European Insolvency Regulation reforms the EC Regulation (1346/2000) on insolvency proceedings. It applies to insolvency proceedings that are opened on or after 26 June 2017. This book provides a commentary on the complete Regulation including its main changes: the extension of its application to preventive insolvency proceedings; the creation of publicly accessible online insolvency registers; the possibility of avoiding the opening of multiple proceedings and preventing ‘forum shopping’; the introduction of new procedures with the aim of facilitating cross-border coordination and cooperation between multiple insolvency proceedings in different Member States relating to members of the same group of companies.

A knowledgeable team of experienced insolvency law experts, among them insolvency practitioners and academics, have analysed the European Insolvency Regulation article by article. The authors focus on the new provisions and mechanisms as well as on the case law by the European Court of Justice and courts of the Member States. This book is a perfect tool to successfully tackle all questions in relation to cross-border insolvencies.
