Insolvency within multinational enterprise groups (MEGs) raises complex issues due to the foreign elements of the case and the multiplicity of debtors. The key problem is deciding to what extent and in which ways should there be 'linkage' between the entities in the course of their insolvency in order to promote insolvency goals. This issue has been neglected in both national and international regimes.
In order to deal with this issue the work provides a theoretical framework, suggesting a balance between Entity-Enterprise issues (drawn from company law theory and the problem of enterprise groups) and Universality-Territoriality issues (drawn from cross-border insolvency and conflict of laws theory). This is further assisted by a taxonomy describing prototypical scenarios of MEGs and their insolvency.
The theoretical framework and prototypical scenarios are the basis for critical analysis of various tools for 'linking' between different components of MEGs in the course of their insolvency and the degree to which they fit with a series of insolvency goals.
The book suggests a clear model for dealing with insolvency within MEGs which can be used not only within the current cross-border insolvency frameworks (e.g., UNCITRAL Model Law, EC Regulation) but also as a definitive guideline for future reform.
It argues that a global group-wide perspective for MEG insolvencies is desirable if applied in appropriate types of cases and if it does not unduly defeat entity law and territoriality concerns.

Mevorach easily combines an academician's intellectual rigor with a practitioner's understanding of the day-to-day issues likely to plague a multinational group proceeding. Because of this, the book stands out as more than simply an effort to gain academic distinction or to stake a claim to a particular area of expertise * Mahesh Uttamchandani, Banking and Finance Law Review * Overall, this is a densely argued book on a subject that is only at the beginning of its jurisprudential and legislative development. The book is..rich in differentiations....a major step towards bringing some order into this chaos * Legal Studies, Vol 30 No 4 * This text is the first systematic treatment of the issue of insolvency as it affects groups of companies...is well written and comprehensive in its treatment of the subject...up to date in its analysis of the case law and would be a very worthy addition to practitioner and academic libraries alike. * Paul J Omar *
