This second edition of Commentary on the European Insolvency Regulation expands upon what has become a widely cited work on the recast EU Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings. It incorporates important developments in the case law since the Regulation was recast in 2015, as well as other significant updates. As with the first edition, it provides a detailed article-by-article commentary on the Regulation, written by a group of expert scholars and practitioners from a range of European jurisdictions. Drawing on a rich body of CJEU and national case law, as well as scholarly developments, analysis of the Regulation is accompanied by a chapter explaining the background to the Regulation's enactment and recasting, identifying its key features, and examining the relationship between the Regulation and new European Restructuring Directive.

As well as retaining the distinctive features of the first edition—the multi-jurisdictional focus of the expert contributors, and in-depth examination of the legislative provision and case law —the second edition offers new analysis of issues that have arisen since the publication of the first edition in 2016, including updates on the impact of Brexit and the passage of the European Restructuring Directive in 2019. This edition of Commentary on the European Insolvency Regulation is therefore a key new work for all those who advise or research on the topic of European insolvency law.
