GABRIEL MOSS QC APPOINTED AS MEMBER OF THE ‘EXPERT GROUP ON CROSS-BORDER INSOLVENCY’
We are pleased to announce that the EU Commission has appointed Gabriel Moss QC to be a member of the ‘Expert Group on Cross-Border Insolvency’ advising the EU on the reform of the EC Regulation on insolvency proceedings 1346/2000. This is a mandatory European statute governing jurisdiction, choice of law and recognition/enforcement in insolvency proceedings concerning debtors based in the EU that have operations in more than one member state. The Regulation provides for main proceedings in the EU Member State where its “centre of main interests” (COMI) is located. Proceedings elsewhere in the EU are purely local in effect and, in any case, subservient to the main proceedings. Gabriel Moss QC is the co-editor and author of Moss Fletcher and Isaacs: The EC Regulation on insolvency proceedings (2nd ed, 2009).
