This course will address how national and regional systems collectively confront multinational companies at the end of their lives. Corporate bankruptcy practice today seldom entails a single company filing a single case in a single national court. The increasingly international landscape demands navigation of how national bankruptcy systems interact and fit together. In the Lehman Brothers case, regulators in the U.S. did not understand the dictates of EU and English laws, and their mistakes continue to affect the health of the global economy. This course will cover the problems caused by cross-border bankruptcies; treatment of corporate groups; key legal concepts dictating jurisdiction and choice of law; procedures for court control of assets located outside of jurisdictional territory; domestic recognition of foreign judgments; the treatment of concurrent and parallel proceedings; regional coordination and legislative harmonisation; and the impact of international institutions on national bankruptcy procedures.
