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.

Cross-Border Insolvency

The Enactment and Interpretation of the UNCITRAL Model Law

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.

Although cross-border industrial sub-contracting is the main tool of industrial organisation in the global economy, practitioners in this important field are significantly hampered by a lack of uniform rules. This book offers a first step in discerning and formulating a framework for such rules, based on the experience of counsel for both contractors and sub-contractors in over twenty countries worldwide. it consists of the final papers, subsequently revised by the presenters, delivered at a conference held in Florence, In February 2000, under the auspices of the Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA) And The Association Internationale des Jeunes Avocats (AIJA). The authors cover a wide range of perspectives and issues that affect the negotiation and drafting of a sound cross-border industrial sub-contracting agreement, including competition law, quality control, product liability, payment clauses, and industrial and intellectual property. Other essays present the basic legal issues from a comparative perspective and clarify the fundamental distinctions in the points of view of the contractor And The sub-contractor. Individual contributions from practitioners in twenty countries (encompassing EU countries, The United States, Central and Eastern Europe, And The Asia-Pacific region) detail applicable domestic laws so that the user can determine points of difference, common aspects, and potential pitfalls in most of the world's major industrial sub-contracting jurisdictions.

English summary: Classification societies establish and apply technical standards in relation to the design, construction and supervision of ships. Their principal contracting partners are ship builders and ship owners. Increasingly, classification societies are being faced with damage claims initiated by members of the shipping industry with whom they have not established a contractual relationship. Under German law but in a comparative perspective, Jurgen Basedow and Wolfgang Wurmnest examine such third party claims. They focus in particular on how such claims are affected by limitation of liability clauses agreed upon between the classification society and its contracting partners. German description: Klassifikationsgesellschaften sind die technischen Uberwachungsorganisationen der Seeschiffahrt. In jungerer Zeit sind sie verstarkt Anspruchen Dritter ausgesetzt, mit denen sie keine Vertragsbeziehungen unterhalten. Diese Tendenz ist weltweit zu beobachten, wie aktuelle Falle vor englischen, neuseelandischen und US-amerikanischen Gerichten belegen. Dritte versuchen sich vor allem im Anschluss an Schiffskatastrophen, aber auch im Zuge von Schiffsverkaufen, an einer Klassifikationsgesellschaft schadlos zu halten. Jurgen Basedow und Wolfgang Wurmnest untersuchen, welche Anspruche solchen Dritten nach deutschem Recht gegen eine Klassifikationsgesellschaft zustehen und welche Bedeutung hierbei Haftungsbeschrankungen zukommt, die eine Klassifikationsgesellschaft mit ihren Vertragspartnern vereinbart. Somit steht die privatrechtliche Haftung von Klassifikationsgesellschaften im Mittelpunkt dieses Buches; ihre Haftung fur hoheitliches Handeln wird nur am Rande gestreift. Die Autoren arbeiten die Problematik rechtsvergleichend auf und beziehen dabei das australische, englische, franzosische, neuseelandische und US-amerikanische Recht ein. Die von ihnen vertretene Losung steht im Einklang mit dem fein austarierten System der Haftungsverteilung und -beschrankung des internationalen Seerechts, welches massgeblich durch volkerrechtliche Ubereinkommen gepragt wird.
