European Insolvency Regulation Case Register

One of the benefits of membership of INSOL Europe is free access to the European Insolvency Regulation Case Register, housed on the Lexis library. With EC case law, decisions of the CJEU bind all Member States, though where the CJEU has given limited guidance on a particular area, courts may look to decisions of other courts in the Member States for guidance, although they will not be binding. 

The INSOL Europe Case Register contains summaries of over 500 judgments, from the CJEU and first instance and appeal courts of the EU Member States, that consider a significant point relating to the EC Regulation on Insolvency or, from 26 June 2017 onwards, the Recast Regulation.

The Case Register committee is supported by a dedicated team of national contributors. All abstracts are published in English and are academically moderated by Professor Reinhard Bork and Dr Kristen van Zwieten.
