Centre of Main Interest (otherwise known as COMI) with Regard to the Existing Case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU)

Rok vydání: 2019



The centre of main interests is the key concept of Regulation (EU) 2015/848 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2015 on insolvency proceedings. Its significance lies in the fact that this concept constitutes the sole determinant for establishing international jurisdiction for the opening of the main insolvency proceedings. The paper deals with the analysis of the concept of COMI, including the presentation of the case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union.
