In the wake of the recent economic downturn, an increasing number of parties to international arbitrations have become subject to insolvency proceedings. The consequences of such intersection of international arbitration and cross-border insolvency are unclear. Transnational inconsistencies and difficulties continue to emerge, and in many ways the debate regarding how to deal with cross-border insolvency questions in arbitration is just beginning.

This book examines the effect of the adoption of the United Nations Committee on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency in five common law jurisdictions, namely Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. It examines how each of those states has adopted, interpreted and applied the provisions of the Model Law, and highlights the effects of inconsistencies by examining jurisprudence in each of these countries, specifically how the Model Law affects existing principles of recognition of insolvency proceedings. The book examines how the UNCITRAL Guide to enactment of the Model Law has affected the interpretation of each of its articles and, in turn, the courts’ ability to interpret and hence give effect to the purposes of the Model Law. It also considers the ability of courts to refer to amendments made to the Guide after enactment of the Model Law in a state, thereby questioning whether the current inconsistencies in interpretation can be overcome by UNCITRAL amending the Guide.

Although cross-border industrial sub-contracting is the main tool of industrial organisation in the global economy, practitioners in this important field are significantly hampered by a lack of uniform rules. This book offers a first step in discerning and formulating a framework for such rules, based on the experience of counsel for both contractors and sub-contractors in over twenty countries worldwide. it consists of the final papers, subsequently revised by the presenters, delivered at a conference held in Florence, In February 2000, under the auspices of the Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA) And The Association Internationale des Jeunes Avocats (AIJA). The authors cover a wide range of perspectives and issues that affect the negotiation and drafting of a sound cross-border industrial sub-contracting agreement, including competition law, quality control, product liability, payment clauses, and industrial and intellectual property. Other essays present the basic legal issues from a comparative perspective and clarify the fundamental distinctions in the points of view of the contractor And The sub-contractor. Individual contributions from practitioners in twenty countries (encompassing EU countries, The United States, Central and Eastern Europe, And The Asia-Pacific region) detail applicable domestic laws so that the user can determine points of difference, common aspects, and potential pitfalls in most of the world's major industrial sub-contracting jurisdictions.
