Publication of the monograph “Maritime cross-border insolvency” (2017), by L.I. Athanassiou


I am delighted to announce the publication of my latest book on “Maritime Cross-Border Insolvency” by Informa Routledge Law (2017).

The purpose of this study is to identify the reasons and the key areas of the increasing tension between maritime and insolvency law, to reflect upon the formulation of guidelines and to address concrete manifestations of conflict, on a comparative basis. In order to preserve an internal systematic cohesion, the book focuses on the two main transnational insolvency regimes, European Regulation 2015/848 and Uncitral Model Law, and examines how they affect international maritime rules, on the basis of which the shipping industry has traditionally dealt with debtors and creditors. Emphasis was mainly placed on the interpretation and implementation adopted in Greek, UK and US Jurisdictions.
