CERIL Statement 2018-2 on Cross-border Restructuring and Insolvency post-BREXIT

Geschreven door: Redactie op

The Conference of European Restructuring and Insolvency Law (CERIL)  highlights the relationship between the EU and the UK after Brexit in the area of restructuring and insolvency law and seeks to formulate a position on the nature and content of a possible future instrument governing that relationship.

CERIL is an independent non-profit limited member organisation. Initiated and chaired by prof. Francisco Garcimartin (University Autónoma of Madrid and Linklaters), and prof. Michael Veder (Radboud University Nijmegen and RESOR), a CERIL working group investigated the possible consequences of Brexit on cross-border restructuring and insolvency in relation to the remaining EU.

CERIL Report 2018-2 presents the result of this study and seeks to formulate a position on the nature and content of a possible future instrument governing the relationships between the EU and the UK after Brexit in the area of restructuring and insolvency law.

The report focusses on the European Insolvency Regulation (EIR Recast) and how to fill the gap that will be left if, after Brexit, the EIR Recast will cease to apply as between the EU and the UK.

CERIL argues for the development of a bilateral agreement between the EU and the UK in the field of insolvency and restructuring. Such bilateral agreement would mirror, with certain safeguards, the structure and content of the EIR Recast. It would cover international jurisdiction of courts, applicable law, a mutual system of recognition and enforcement and rules on cooperation and communication between UK and EU insolvency practitioners and courts.

CERIL submits that a future agreement should be developed as a “parallel instrument”. The Lugano Convention, which basically extends the framework of the Brussels I Regulation vis à vis EFTA States, or the bilateral agreement extending the Brussels I Regulation to Denmark may be used as a model. In this way conflicting interpretations by courts in the UK and the EU can be prevented.
