What is the INSOL Europe Case Register?

The new-look INSOL Europe: European Insolvency Regulation Case Register is now hosted on the LexisNexis platform. This unique case abstract service provides summaries of judgments, from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and first instance and appeal courts of the EU Member States, that consider a significant point relating to the Regulation (EC) 1346/2000 on Insolvency Proceedings (the EC Regulation on Insolvency). The service currently includes abstracts of over 450 judgments from 2001 onwards and is constantly expanding.

The abstracts are provided on behalf of INSOL Europe by national correspondents, practising or academic lawyers, covering each of the EU Member States and are academically moderated by Professor Reinhard Bork, University of Hamburg, and Dr Kristin van Zwieten, Oxford University. Abstracts relating to judgments of the CJEU are provided by the Technical Officers of INSOL Europe and are moderated by Stefan Ramel, Barrister, Guildhall Chambers.

The case register is published by INSOL Europe (the European organisation of professionals who specialise in insolvency, business reconstruction and recovery) and has been hosted on Lexis Library
from October 2014 onwards.
