CBInsolvency LLC (CBI) was founded to help lenders, borrowers, and other parties address the often challenging cross-border aspects of financial distress and default. CBI’s principals understand the issues, complications and language of cross-border insolvency. Their deep knowledge and experience, gained on the bench, in legislative development, mediation, arbitration, consulting, academics and law practice, enable them to:

    Provide expert opinions in cross-border cases (our opinions have been submitted in over 20 major foreign proceedings)

  • Provide mediation and other dispute management services (we have served as mediator in major cases involving international parties, including the Lehman Brothers cases)
  • Offer consultation to assist in developing successful strategies in complex cross-border cases (we have assisted foreign representatives, U.S. and foreign law firms in chapter 15 cases)
