Communication and Cooperation: The continuing challenge

Published in

The European Guidelines on Communication and Cooperation Guidelines 2007 (CoCo Guidelines)1 were the outcome of a project led by Professors Bob Wessels (Leiden) and Miguel Virgos (Madrid Autonoma) over the course of two years beginning in 2005. The project was built on the then Article 31 of the European Insolvency Regulation (EIR) and its injunction to practitioners in main and secondary proceedings to cooperate and communicate with each other. The CoCo Guidelines were designed to flesh out a methodology for the way in which that cooperation and communication should take place and which the parent text had left largely silent.
