Abstract

The Maxwell bankruptcy was the first big international insolvency, one that moved into primary proceedings simultaneously in London and New York. This set up a battle between British administration and US Chapter 11. The intervention by certain individuals who had thought about the consequences of such bankruptcies, including lawyers and judges, enabled a private system of law to emerge to handle these incommensurable systems.

Keywords: globalization, bankruptcy, insolvency, chapter 11, administration, lawyers, accountants
