Topics include: Forum and law shopping post Brexit; Cross-frontier recognition; Enforcement and judicial assistance for foreign insolvency proceedings; The recognisability of the scheme of arrangement in the post-Brexit era; and: Brexit or not - Europe is going all Chapter 11, What does this mean for European restructuring?
