Maritime Cross-Border Insolvency is a comprehensive comparative examination of both insolvency regimes (UNCITRAL and EU) in shipping with reference to the main jurisdictions having adopted the UNCITRAL regime, i.e. USA, UK, Greece.


'Professor Athanassiou’s book represents a remarkable attempt to guide the reader through the fascinating and murky world of maritime cross-border insolvency, guided by the knowledge and confidence of an academic with several years of experience in private practice.

Professor Athanassiou does an excellent job in eviscerating the nuances of the national and international statutes covered in her book, thus providing the reader with an analytical understanding of the covered topics.

…the author manages to successfully blend her academic and professional backgrounds to create an outstandingly well-referenced book that should certainly be used in professional practice.'

Eugenio Vaccari, International Company and Commercial Law Review (ICCLR)
