In the wake of the recent economic downturn, an increasing number of parties to international arbitrations have become subject to insolvency proceedings. The consequences of such intersection of international arbitration and cross-border insolvency are unclear. Transnational inconsistencies and difficulties continue to emerge, and in many ways the debate regarding how to deal with cross-border insolvency questions in arbitration is just beginning.

It often seems today that no dispute is barred from resolution by arbitration. Even the fundamental question of whether a dispute falls under the exclusive jurisdiction of a judicial body may itself be arbitrable. Arbitrability is thus an elusive concept; yet a systematic study of it, as this book shows, yields innumerable guidelines and insights that are of substantial value to arbitral practice. Although the book takes the form of a collection of essays, it is designed as a comprehensive commentary on practical issues that emerge from the idea of arbitrability. Fifteen leading academics and practitioners from Europe and the United States each explore different facets of arbitrability always with a perspective open to international developments and comparative evaluation of standards. The presentation falls into two parts: in the first the focus is on the general features of arbitrability, its rationale and the laws applicable to it. In the second, arbitrability is specifically examined in the context of administrative, criminal, corporate, IP, financial, commercial, and criminal law This book has its origins in an International Conference on Arbitrability held at Athens in September 2005. Seven papers presented there are here reviewed and updated, and nine others are added. The subject of the book and– arbitrability and– is one that is much talked about, but seldom if ever given the in-depth treatment presented here. Arbitrators and other practitioners in the field will welcome the way the analysis moves logically from theory to practice regarding every issue, and academics will recognize a definitive treatment of arbitrability as understood and applied in the settlement of disputes today.

This book meets the practice needs of lawyers confronted with cross-border disputes now arising far beyond the traditional areas of international commerce, such as consumer disputes, inter-family conflicts, and disagreements over Internet-based transactions. The author takes full account of mediationand’s risks and limitations, primarily its lack of finality and uncertainty in relation to enforceability issues which will persist until the advent of appropriate international regulation. Among the aspects discussed and analysed are the following: and• the emerging and significant new wave of global disputants; and• need to resolve disputes on the basis of factors other than law; and• increasing tendency of disputes to defy specific legal categories; and• dispute prevention systems drawing on mediation principles, such as project management mediation, partnering, and alliancing; and• mediation compared to others forms of dispute resolution; and• referral to mediation; and• mediation and multi-tiered dispute resolution (MDR) clauses; and• the duties of mediators, lawyers and parties; and• confidentiality and its implications; and• enforceability of mediated settlements; and and• the impact of mediation on legal rights and remedies. While the book draws on examples from around the world, six primary jurisdictions (the United States, Australia, England, France, Germany, and Austria) are selected for several reasons, including comparison of legal traditions, significant volume of mediation-related case law, and the existence of mediation-related legislation and implementation requirements. Cross-border legal instruments examined include the European Directive on Mediation, UNCITRALand’s Model Law on International Commercial Conciliation (MLICC), and the Uniform Mediation Act (UMA) in the United States. In the 21st century mediation is at the forefront of contemporary social and legal development and is finding a place in both physical dispute resolution forums and worldwide electronic-based communities. International and Comparative Mediation, with its deeply informed insights into emerging international trends and the diversity of mediation regulation applicable to international disputes, shows conflict management practitioners how to create a forum culturally acceptable to each specific group of participants, with a view to agreeing on appropriate norms for the regulation of future relationships. It will be welcomed by lawyers working in a wide range of cross-border practice. Professor Nadja Alexander holds appointments at City University Hong Kong, Murdoch University in Australia and University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa. Her books on dispute resolution have been published internationally and her work has appeared in English, German and Russian language versions.

This book examines the effect of the adoption of the United Nations Committee on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency in five common law jurisdictions, namely Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. It examines how each of those states has adopted, interpreted and applied the provisions of the Model Law, and highlights the effects of inconsistencies by examining jurisprudence in each of these countries, specifically how the Model Law affects existing principles of recognition of insolvency proceedings. The book examines how the UNCITRAL Guide to enactment of the Model Law has affected the interpretation of each of its articles and, in turn, the courts’ ability to interpret and hence give effect to the purposes of the Model Law. It also considers the ability of courts to refer to amendments made to the Guide after enactment of the Model Law in a state, thereby questioning whether the current inconsistencies in interpretation can be overcome by UNCITRAL amending the Guide.

A fresh and insightful guide to post-financial crisis cross-border insolvency, this book interrogates the current regime and sets out a pattern to improve its future. In recent decades, and especially since the global financial crisis, a number of important initiatives have focused on developing effective solutions for managing the insolvency of multinational enterprises and financial institutions. Irit Mevorach here takes stock of the varying success of previous policy, and identifies the gaps and biases that could be bridged by a new approach. The book first sets out the theoretical debates regarding cross-border insolvency and surveys the strengths and weaknesses of the prevailing method - modified universalism - synthesizing divergences into a rubric for both commercial entities and financial institutions. Adhering to these norms more robustly, Mevorach argues, would enhance global welfare and produce the best outcomes for businesses and institutions. Drawing upon sources from international law as well as behavioural and economic theory, Mevorach considers how to translate modified universalism into binding international law and how to choose the right instrument for cross-border insolvency; the impact instrument design has on decisions and choices, and how to encourage compliance. In particular, the book proposes guidelines that could potentially overcome, or at least take into account, behavioural biases in decision-making in order to create a system that works for businesses, and offers a blueprint for the future of cross-border insolvency.

European Monographs Volume 103 Cross-Border Transfers of Undertakings: A European Perspective discusses the issue of cross-border transfers of undertakings from a European perspective and offers new and different solutions to issues of conflicting laws. Globalization and market integration have shaped the economic climate in such a way as to give rise to a considerable increase in cross-border mergers, acquisitions and corporate restructurings. However, the primary European Union (EU) legislation in this area - the Acquired Rights Directive - brings about only partial and minimum harmonization, giving rise to differences in the employee protective regime across the EU Member States. This book, the first full analysis of the EU-level private international law implications of the subject, masterfully addresses the plethora of questions that arise and presents well-considered recommendations towards the introduction of a new and uniform conflict of laws path for transfers of undertakings throughout the EU. What's in this book: With a methodology that combines comparative, 'black letter', legal historical and empirical approaches, the author addresses such issues and topics as the following: determination of applicable law both upon and after transfers; jurisdictional issues; the main provisions of the Acquired Rights Directive and their content; the main differences existing among the relevant laws of the Member States; special characteristics of the maritime sector and seagoing workers; and cross-border implications of Brexit. This book critically evaluates the existing rules on international jurisdiction and the conflict of laws relating to cross-border transfers of undertakings, clearly exposing the regime's merits and demerits. How this will help you: This book provides a comprehensive study of existing rules on jurisdiction and applicable laws to a cross-border transfer of undertaking. This book helps counsel representing any actor involved in a cross-border merger, acquisition or business restructuring - transferor, transferee or affected employees - gain a clear understanding of their legal position both before and after the transfer. Thus, this book serves as a useful resource for policymakers, legislators and interested academics by helping them to solve issues of conflicting laws and international jurisdiction relating to transfers of undertakings.
