No one knows for certain what the future will hold for the UK and the remaining EU countries post 29 March 2019 but in the context of cross-border insolvency we do know that if there is a no-deal Brexit, that the Recast Regulation on Insolvency Regulation (EU) 2015/848 will be repealed.

So, what does this mean for UK insolvencies with a cross-border element?

In simple terms a UK appointment taker will have to apply to the EU local Court for recognition of their appointment and cannot rely on the mutual recognition which currently exists under the EU Regulation.   They may also have to seek the assistance of the EU local courts to enforce judgments and orders and negotiate with foreign office holders. The UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency may plug some of the gaps on mutual recognition, but not all.

What is clear is that the support and assistance of local lawyers is key to ensuring cross-border insolvencies are managed without additional cost, frustrations and delays and that assets are recovered and value maintained for creditors.

Where can we help?
