What is the INSOL Europe case register?

We are delighted to announce the launch of the new look INSOL Europe: European Insolvency Regulation Case Register on the LexisNexis platform. This unique case abstract service provides summaries of judgments, from the Court of Justice of the European Union 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 service includes abstracts of judgments from 2001 onwards.

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 Court of Justice of the European Union are provided by the Technical Officers of INSOL Europe and are moderated by Stefan Ramel, Barrister, Guildhall Chambers.

Published by INSOL Europe and hosted on Lexis Library from October 2014 onwards.

How do I use and search the INSOL Europe case register?

For details of how to use and search the case register, see the

How to Guide

The How to Guide provides details of how to search for a case in various ways eg using general search terms, the case name, its citation, judgment date, court, relevant section of the Regulation (EC) 1346/2000 on Insolvency (eg cases mentioning Art 3(1)), or cases referred to (eg cases mentioning Eurofood).

You can also search for cases by browsing by country, then date.

Due to the variety of procedures and traditions relating to judicial decisions in the different jurisdictions, there may be judgments from EU member states that refer to the Regulation (EC) 1346/2000 on Insolvency Proceedings but do not appear in the case register. Please email INSOL Europe at technical@insol-europe.org to provide details of any such cases.
