    05.15.17 Roundtable Discussion: The Impact of Brexit on Cross-Border Bankrupcy Practice

    Though the details are not yet clear, Brexit will have a major impact on the shape of cross-border restructurings and insolvencies in Europe and worldwide. At the very least, the UK will no longer be governed by the European Insolvency Regulation. As a result, schemes of arrangement and insolvency orders originating in the UK will face additional uncertainty regarding recognition, and insolvency orders originating in the EU will no longer receive automatic recognition in the UK. How can these lacunae be bridged to facilitate orderly restructurings?
