Insolvency forum shopping

Insolvency forum shopping, also known as ‘forum shopping’ or ‘bankruptcy tourism’, refers to the situation where an insolvent company or individual relocates to another jurisdiction, or seeks access to the law of a jurisdiction other than their own, in order to allow them to access insolvency and restructuring processes there.
