This research guide focuses on how different countries and regions deal with the increasingly complex problems of distressed multi-national companies. Topics range from the different approaches to insolvency across the US and Canada, Latin America, western Europe, Japan and China, to managing cross-border cases, recognition by US courts of foreign insolvency proceedings, and the use of US Chapter 11 by foreign companies. As bankruptcy law in the United States is considered by Congress and the federal government, this research guide is about federal law only, and does not address state laws related to this issue.
Find information about bankruptcy laws, including answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. This video will give you basic information about the process, the relief it offers, and how to find the legal help you may need.
