Prof.Dr. Daniel Staehelin, is attorney-at-law and notary public, based in Switzerland.

INSOL Europe is a membership organisation of professionals specialising in insolvency, bankruptcy and business reconstruction and recovery. With over 1,100 members across 46 countries made up of lawyers, accountants, judges, regulators, academics and bankers, INSOL Europe makes a significant contribution to the work of European international bodies on insolvency, bankruptcy and business recovery.
In its 30 year history, INSOL Europe has uniquely been at the forefront of research and education in the area of cross-border insolvency and restructuring. Past achievements include the Coco guidelines in 2009 which set the standard for cross-border co-operation on insolvency cases. Present projects are focused on development of Europe-wide Best Practice Rules for insolvency practitioners, and development of a post-graduate insolvency and restructuring degree.
In addition, the INSOL Europe Case Register is an ongoing project, in English and the relevant national language. It is an invaluable storehouse of precedents, monitoring and interpreting the development of the considerable case law which the Regulation has generated. http://www.insolvencycases.eu/
Earlier in the year, INSOL Europe launched its proposal for revision of the European Insolvency Regulation by officially submitting it to the Commission of the European Union in Brussels, which received wide attention internationally.
