    EU Study Group


    INSOL Europe’s Council has direct contact with the EU.  One of the key goals of the association is to make submissions and contribute to the work of the European and other international official bodies who are affected by the insolvency process, or who have a role to play in the saving of businesses and jobs.  If you would like further information about the work we do in connection with the EU please contact our Director of Administration, Caroline Taylor.
