Summary/Abstract: Under Article 16 and 17 of the Council Regulation (EC) No 1346/2000, on Insolvency Proceedings, insolvency proceedings opened in territory of one Member State of the EU have universal effects within all other Member States. Pursuant to Article 4 of the Insolvency Regulation, law governing the proceedings shall be the law of the state in which the proceedings are opened. However, the Insolvency Regulation states few exemptions from this general rule. In compliance with Article 15 of the Insolvency Regulation, effects of the insolvency proceedings on a lawsuit pending in other member state are governed by the law of the state in which the lawsuit is pending. This conflict-of-law rule covers also pending arbitration.
