Judicial Wing Introduction


The Judicial Wing was founded in 2006 in Bucharest during INSOL Europe's Annual Congress and initially had five members from five different EU Member States. Meanwhile, the membership has increased considerably to 36 sitting and 3 former judges from 22 EU Member States and 2 sitting judges from European non-member states. The Judicial Wing’s activities are focused on issues related to cross-border insolvencies.

The Judicial Wing typically meets each year on the day before the opening of INSOL Europe’s Annual Congress at the congress venue. The last physical meeting took place on September 25, 2019, in Copenhagen. The annual meeting on September 29, 2020, was held remotely.

On April 14, 2021, the Judicial Wing had a remote mid-year meeting to discuss administrative business and new projects. Another remote meeting is considered to be held on October 13, 2021. The next physical meeting is planned for March 3, 2022, in conjunction with INSOL Europe's annual congress in Dublin, Ireland.
The Judicial Wing has three co-chairs:
  • Michael Quinn (Ireland)
  • Eberhard Nietzer (Germany)
  • Nicoleta Mirela Nastasie (Romania)
