This dissertation was written as part of the LL.M. in Transnational and European Commercial Law, Mediation, Arbitration and Energy Law, at the International Hellenic University. Initially, the development of European Insolvency Law is presented; the harmonization attempts and some indicative national legislation examples from Germany and France. In the next chapters, the history of the relevant U.S.A. Law is cited and the dynamic role it has played in reforming other national Insolvency Law systems is underlined, as well as its important legal mechanisms for company restructuring. The chapters to follow attempt to present differences and similarities between Europe and the U.S.A. in the field of insolvency procedures through case law and more specifically by examining two cases of well-known bankruptcies. In the end, there is an effort to connect the legal aspects of the subject with the economic ones, by collecting information on the matter of how the two basic options that are offered to companies (liquidation and reorganization) affect the economy and what results do they produce. My expectations from this dissertation are to be able to show from my limited law practice, but mainly from my research that Insolvency Law is a very fast-paced and progressively harmonized legal sector, in close relation to economy, that can actually play a significant role in reforming unsound companies and unstable economies if jurisdictions around the world follow the innovative U.S.A. model and focus on the rebuilding of companies, the reorganization of debts, the maintenance of employee positions and not on the short-term liquidation option that Europe tended to prefer some years ago. This academic work is the result of the great collaboration I had throughout the previous months with my supervisor, Professor Pavlos Masouros, who contributed with his knowledge and useful guidance providing me with very interesting scientific articles and extremely helpful methodological advice. Furthermore, I would like to attribute acknowledgements to Professor Georgia Mpechri – Kechagioglou, whose great teaching of Insolvency Law during my bachelor’s degree years created a solid foundation for me as a starting point and inspired me to study this area of law further more. Last but not least, I would like to thank Professor Athanasios Kaissis for being a very supportive academic mentor and being very close to all LL.M. students, helping us with every problem we encountered through this difficult but also very fruitful period of the master’s programme. Keywords: Insolvency, Bankruptcy, Reorganization, Liquidation, U.S.A. Bankruptcy Code (EN)
