Course Description

The globalization of business has had the inevitable result of creating businesses that have multinational financial problems. Multinational insolvencies and reorganizations present entirely new and complex legal and business issues. This course will consider a number of precedent-setting international insolvencies, such as Nortel and Lehman Brothers as well as the major international guidelines, including the Canadian rules to create systems for international co-ordination in multinational business failures and reorganizations. The course will also review the position of, and remedies available to, creditors and other stakeholders in the insolvency process who are affected by an insolvency proceeding in another country, with particular emphasis on cross-border insolvency cases involving the United States and Canada.
