IFLR: New law for the recogntion of foreign insolvency decrees in Switzerland
In international insolvencies, the insolvency administrator and creditors have to look for assets of the debtor in foreign jurisdictions. To what extent this is possible depends on the local legal framework. Switzerland applies the concept of territoriality according to which foreign bankruptcy decrees need to be formally recognised.
