About INSOL Europe

INSOL Europe is an organisation of professionals specialising in insolvency and business reconstruction and recovery.

With over 1,300 members across 50 countries made up of lawyers, accountants, judges, regulators, academics and bankers, INSOL Europe makes a significant contribution to the work of European and international official bodies on insolvency, bankruptcy and business recovery. Many members also belong to kindred associations and are members of INSOL International.

Holding international and regional events throughout Europe, INSOL Europe makes networking easy and helps the exchange of professional experience across borders. At their events, delegates can learn about industry developments, participate in academic conferences and network with colleagues in inspiring locations. 

INSOL Europe today is a large and influential organisation, shaping the environment in which it operates, which in turn means that we are in good shape for the future. The financial crisis has shown what a significant force the insolvency industry is and the events of the past few years have now given us much to think about in terms of lessons learned, in procedures and compliance. For INSOL Europe, this means that we have grown in stature as we have grown in members and this is a very exciting period in our evolution.

INSOL Europe is at the forefront of key milestones in the insolvency world and we are well positioned to canvass and convey our industry’s views to the decision-makers across Europe. New opportunities also present new challenges, which is why the law has to evolve to take account of such changes. We must also be flexible and agile in our approach – be practical, thoughtful and original, maintaining the high standards that have always been the hallmarks of the insolvency industry as we navigate through uncharted territory together. 

Our association is managed by our Executive, Council and Secretariat, details of which can be found here.
