CMS Guide to Restructuring, Insolvency and Distressed Debt Trading in Europe


CMS is delighted to present the ‘CMS Guide to Restructuring, Insolvency and Distressed Debt Trading in Europe’. 

This guide provides a comparative analysis of certain key areas of law and procedure for those involved in or affected by financial distress of a corporation and the trading of distressed debt across Europe. It also provides an overview of the latest position on international governance of insolvency proceedings, in the form of the EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings and the UNCITRAL Model Law. 

Martin Brown, partner in the restructuring and insolvency group in London comments, 'We wanted to put together a guide that answered, as a matter of the local law, the kinds of questions that are typically raised by clients who are looking to realise or protect value in a distressed situation or who are otherwise affected by the threat of potential insolvency. The result is, we hope, a very useful point of reference for clients assessing their options and key risks in each of the 21 different jurisdictions we have covered.' 

If you have any questions arising out of any of the issues contained in this guide, we would be delighted to hear from you. The main contacts for each jurisdiction can be found on page 122 of the guide.
