"Cross-border insolvency necessarily involves multiple jurisdictions. But, as this important new work demonstrates, it also routinely necessitates multiple perspectives – economic and legal, of course, but also social, political, and medical. A particular strength is the manner in which the book focuses on the digital economy, where data is a source of value but doesn't fall neatly into existing categories: Is it a good? Is it a service? Is it something else? At the same time, the authors ground their research in the practical and the pragmatic, offering concrete proposals in support of regulatory convergence and harmonisation that, they argue, will better enable the global economy to navigate increasingly choppy waters. For practitioners, scholars, and students it will be of great interest – and of great use."

"In this innovative new book, Trakman and Walters make the case for urgent reform of cross border corporate insolvency and restructuring law. Their account covers, but goes beyond, challenges with the existing enforcement and recognition regime, to call for ‘internationalisation’ of various legal tools and mechanisms, including several rarely discussed in a cross-border insolvency and restructuring context such as letters of comfort, data protection, and artificial intelligence. This impressive scope is matched by engagement with an impressive number of jurisdictions: Australia; India; Indonesia; China; Singapore; UK; US; and the European Union. The result is a book which deserves a place on the bookshelves of anyone interested in this important field."

"As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn, this is a most timely and impressive study of cross-border insolvency. A particular strength is its extensive research. The authors cover not only technical substantive laws concerned with transnational insolvency, but also complicated private international law issues such as jurisdiction and international commercial arbitration, which are rarely discussed in the literature. It further identifies key emerging areas of international commercial law such as data protection and artificial intelligence that will form part of cross-border insolvency and restructuring. Specifically the book calls for nations to collaborate at internationalisation level for current and future economic shock. One of the finest works on cross-border insolvency, this book is essential reading for everyone interested in the insolvency law, international commercial law, private international law and international dispute resolution."

"Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic the world has experienced various levels of financial stress, however in this context of global crisis some crucial aspects of financial infrastructural stress, such as cross border insolvency and restructuring, have not often been spoken or written about. Against the backdrop of a period of growth, internationally, nevertheless a comparatively large number entities have had to restructure or declare insolvency. With many entities based in multiple locations and in different countries, this book provides partitioners, scholars, and students with a highly sophisticated comparative legal analysis. The authors make an important point - that national and international regulators need to take a preventative approach, to ensure or minimise as far as possible future economic shocks, and ensure a high level of certainty. As the digital economy expands, the authors also highlight the importance of data and artificial intelligence technology to future cross border restructuring and insolvency. In calling for greater internationalisation of these area of law and close out netting provisions, the authors embrace the roles of international organisations such as UNCITRAL-UNICTAD which can have a positive effect. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in cross border insolvency or restructuring."

"Insolvency law and its practice sits within a country’s legal system. The book explains how insolvency law and its various mechanisms – preventive and reconstructive, often "multi-layered" – are applied to businesses under financial stress. The book’s particular merit is its coverage of a broader range of insolvency laws and their intersections than we generally see, beyond the UNCITRAL Model Law and schemes of arrangement to close out and netting arrangements, keepwell agreements, arbitrations, data control and artificial intelligence. In comparing and contrasting different national approaches, this text makes a valuable and timely contribution to international insolvency law."
