This second edition of The International Insolvency Review once again offers an in-depth review of market conditions and insolvency case developments in a number of key countries. Building on the first edition, coverage has been expanded to include Belgium, Greece, Jersey, Poland, Portugal, Singapore and South Africa bringing the total number of jurisdictions covered to 31. Once again, a debt of gratitude is owed to the outstanding professionals in geographically diverse locales who have contributed to this book. Their contributions, of course, reflect their diverse viewpoints and approaches, which in turn reflect the diversity of their respective national commercial cultures and laws. These differences drive the steadily emerging pattern, described in these pages, of resistance on the national level to the universal application of a single ‘home’ country’s law in cross-border commercial insolvency cases.
