Modern business structures are rarely confined to a single jurisdiction. The successful restructuring of a business in financial distress requires the flexible and innovative utilisation of corporate law, corporate insolvency law and corporate finance mechanisms offered by a multitude of jurisdictions and on the basis of international instruments. The module seeks to identify and to critically analyse the emerging patterns in global restructuring practice from a transnational perspective. Students following the module will obtain a deeper understanding and critical awareness of the mechanisms and techniques utilised in this respect. This is essential for anyone who aspires to work in the corporate, finance or restructuring departments of any major international law firm, on in-house in international financial institutions.
