Reform der Insolvenzordnung. Wesentliche Änderungen durch by Mathias Weidmann

By Mathias Weidmann

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich BWL - Recht, notice: 1,5, SRH Fachhochschule Heidelberg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In Fachkreisen wurde die Insolvenzordnung (InsO) in ihrer alten Fassung seit langem kritisiert. Bemängelt wurde insbesondere, dass der Ablauf des deutschen Insolvenzverfahrens nicht berechenbar sei und dass kaum eine Möglichkeit zur Einflussnahme auf die Auswahl des Insolvenzverwalters genommen werden könne. Generell sei die InsO eher auf die Abwicklung statt auf die Sanierung von Unternehmen ausgerichtet und würde der frühzeitigen Sanierung insolvenzbedrohter Unternehmen zahlreiche Hindernisse in den Weg legen. Mit dem am 01.03.2012 in Kraft getretenen Gesetz zur weiteren Erleichterung der Sanierung von Unternehmen -kurz ESUG genannt- beabsichtigte der Gesetzgeber die Schwachstellen des ehemaligen Insolvenzrechts zu beseitigen und die Fortführung sanierungsfähiger Unternehmen zu erleichtern. Die wesentlichen Schwerpunkte des Reformvorhabens bestanden dabei in der Stärkung der Gläubigerautonomie, der Einführung des sog. Schutzschirmverfahrens sowie dem Ausbau und dem erleichterten Zugang zum Eigenverwaltungsverfahren.

Im Rahmen der vorliegenden Bachelorarbeit wird dem Leser einleitend zunächst das notwendige Grundverständnis zum Themengebiet der Insolvenzabwicklung vermittelt. Nachdem die Reformbedürftigkeit der bisherigen InsO verdeutlicht wurde, werden im weiteren Verlauf die wesentlichen Änderungen, im Speziellen das Schutzschirmverfahren und das modifizierte Eigenverwaltungsverfahren vorgestellt. In Anlehnung an mehrere fremd durchgeführte Studien werden im Rahmen einer ersten Zwischenbilanz sodann die ersten Praxiserfahrungen mit dem neuen Insolvenzrecht dargestellt.

Lei das Práticas Restritivas do Comércio: Comentário by Miguel Gorjão-henriques

By Miguel Gorjão-henriques

O novo regime das PIRC é claro na intencionalidade e opaco nas soluções jurídicas.
Duas coisas ressaltam: nada tem a ver com Concorrência nem com protecção dos Consumidores. E, fruto de uma tradição de experimentalismo jurídico, introduz um nível inaceitável de incerteza sobre as práticas comerciais de todas as empresas fabricantes, produtores, fornecedores, distribuidores estabelecidas em território nacional.
Os valores essenciais do comércio, segurança e celeridade, são postos em causa, proibições como a de (re) venda com prejuízo são mantidas, e é refundado o regime das práticas negociais abusivas. A ASAE é dotada de poderes extensos e discricionários.
É impossível não ver nele obstáculos a valores constitucionais fundamentais. E a não ser pelo terror induzido pelas coimas que prevê, dificilmente contribui para os propósitos louváveis que tinha.
Este Comentário é uma leitura do Decreto-Lei 166/2013, que tem uma vida já longa. Espera-se que seja útil.
