The INSOL international has published a book on antecedent transactions and its applicability in cross-border insolvency situations.
Since most insolvencies span many jurisdictions there are specific issues that IPs are faced with when applying to court to avoid antecedent transactions. The book explores some of these specific issues – particularly from a practical point. Some of the key areas covered are:

• Various claims that can be made to avoid antecedent transactions
• Typical defenses to such claims
• Are foreign judgments avoiding antecedent transfers enforceable?
• Barriers to access to judicial assistance against foreign claimants
• How will a court determine issues of foreign law
• Applicability of the UNCITRAL Model law on foreign insolvency claims
• What should a foreign claimant expect with respect to discovery or disclosure, including any limitations on scope, mandatory disclosures, working co-operatively with opposing counsel and a discussion about timing and fees.
The book has 20 country chapters and each chapter is based on a standard template of questions.

We are pleased to introduce this important publication titled "Financial and Tax Considerations for Distressed Companies and their Creditors".

This is the first book that INSOL International has published that covers tax issues. We have accepted that in most countries tax issues and tax treatments change constantly and that tax laws are changing sooner than some of the other laws. We decided however not to be deterred by these constant changes and move on to produce this book as INSOL’s objective was wider. The book aims to provide practical guidance to insolvency practitioners who are dealing with restructuring financially distressed companies, about the tax position of a country before they consult the tax experts in those countries.

The first part of the book deals with the general insolvency considerations of a country and the latter part deals with the more specific tax issues. Each country chapter therefore has an interesting collection of information that cover the insolvency laws and guidelines that will be applicable in a restructuring, and also tax issues such as debt forgiveness, debt-for equity swap or debt for debt swaps in restructuring plans. It then covers the various tax considerations that affect plans and discusses the practical difficulties that may be encountered and how they may be dealt with or avoided.

Copies of this publication are available for £100 plus postage and package.

This Guide is a must-read for any practitioner involved in international insolvency issues. The authors address the history of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-border Insolvency, which the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law adopted in 1997 after five years of meetings and discussion.

In the current global insolvency market it is critical that key market players in the profession are kept informed of what is happening in their respective regions and beyond.

In 2000, a survey was carried out on our members’ marketplace around the world which provided an insight into the differing insolvency landscapes across the world. Five years on, it was felt that it was important once again to see if new evaluations of the marketplace could be made.

INSOL's 2005 Global Marketplace Survey shows that our membership, from a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures and jurisdictions have a remarkably similar view on a number of key issues facing the market and profession. Several hundred members responded to the survey giving a sample, which, principally due to the consistency of response, probably reflects the views of INSOL members quite accurately.

The INSOL Lenders Group initiated a project to
produce a guidance booklet for insolvency practitioners and others on matters relating to the impact of credit derivatives in restructurings. The working group of this project worked on the draft for over 18 months and in October 2006 INSOL launched a booklet entitled “Credit Derivatives in Restructurings”. The objective of the publication is to raise awareness and promote understanding of relevant issues, and to provide a point of reference for those involved in restructurings.
The book covers an overview of the credit derivatives market, basic elements of credit default swaps, settlement following a credit event, and a comparison with other types of credit products and techniques.
The book also includes several practice points.
