Harmonization of Insolvency Law 

Impulses of a Franco-German initiative for the EU?

In cooperation with Association Henri Capitant Germany and Allianz SE

Tuesday | June 15, 2021 | 4:00 p.m. - 06:00 p.m.

The harmonization of French and German commercial law is a political goal that found its way into the Treaty of Aachen. Given the different legal systemsand traditions, the implementation of this goal is far from trivial. The Franco-German Parliamentary Assembly has taken up this challenge and commissioned a working group to draw up proposals to be presented before the end of June 2021. The basis for this weredrafts prepared by the Association Henri Capitant. This event provides a glimpse into the “engine room” of European legislation. It will focus on insolvency law, the harmonization of which is also a concern of the European Capital Markets Union initiative.
