In August 2011 the Netherlands Association for Comparative and International Insolvency Law (NACIIL) (in Dutch: Nederlandse Vereniging voor Rechtsvergelijkend en Internationaal Insolventierecht, NVRII) has been established. Its goal is to promote the interest for and the knowledge of comparative and international insolvency law. The association will for this purpose hold conferences and organise lectures or courses, initiate student initiatives and the publication and distribution of articles and reports.

As many of the initiatives will be in English, the association also reaches out to professionals, scholars and students (with their COMI) outside the Netherlands in an aim to further jointly the development of comparative and international insolvency law. Presently the Association has over 160 members.

Its first Annual Conference was held on December 8, 2011, in Amsterdam.

During the meeting Reports have been discussed written by Prof. Loes Lennarts, professor of Company Law, University Utrecht and of Comparative Company Law, University Groningen, and Prof. Francisco Garcimartín, professor of Private International Law at the University Autónoma of Madrid, Madrid, and Counsel of Linklaters Madrid. The authors have critically analysed parts of the EU Insolvency Regulation and have proposed amendments to change this Regulation. The board of NACIIL thanks both reporters for their expertise and commitment to deliver their reports.

We would also like to thank the sponsors who have made the Annual Conference and the first initiatives of NVRII possible, the main sponsor De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek and the other general sponsors: ABN Amro, DLA Piper, Houthoff Buruma, RESOR, the German Publisher Beck Verlag, INSOL Europe and Kluwer Legal Publishers.
