The Eversheds Sutherland international guide to company insolvency

Although companies trade in an increasingly global market and despite advances in the recognition of foreign insolvencies in many jurisdictions, insolvency remains essentially national and the relevant law varies significantly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

How can we help?

Eversheds Sutherland has lawyers across the world to help you cut through the complexity. The purpose of the Eversheds Sutherland international guide to company insolvency is to provide a quick reference guide to company insolvency laws and procedures in a range of jurisdictions.

Company insolvency law explained

This guide summarises the law relating to corporate insolvency and restructuring on a country by country basis and answers some of the questions most likely to be asked by distressed companies or their creditors. This guide only considers the rules that apply to general company insolvency. It does not address the insolvency procedures that apply to individuals or special insolvency regimes (for example, those applicable to credit institutions, investment banks or insurers). If you have a query in relation to such matters, please ask one of the Eversheds contacts named in the guide.
