Hodačová, Helena ; Pohl, Tomáš (advisor) ; Macková, Alena (referee)
IN ENGLISH: Reorganisation as a non-liquidation solution of bankruptcy: The main purpose of my final thesis is to analyse a non-liquidation solution of bankruptcy of a debtor under the Czech act No. 184/2006 Sb. (Coll.) hereinafter called as Insolvency Act, with all respect to the actual judicial decisions, legal opinion of the professional public and economic aspects as well. Some issues under Czech law are given in comparison with the Slovenian act No. 7/2005 Zz. (Coll). The main reason for my research is the increasing importance of insolvency law after the economic crise in 2007 to 2009. Since many companies are still to be winded-up, although, it is not the most effective form of figuring out their decline in light of all-society economic stand-point. The thesis is divided into 17 chapters. Each chapter is composed of several main points. The first part subsumes ten chapters, which describes basic elements of incolvency proceedings that are very important for the overview comprehension of the reorganization. The aforementioned part of my thesis covers the description of the historical development and basic elements of incolvency proceedings, explenation of bankruptcy, decision of bankruptcy, petition for bankruptcy order, parties to incolvency proceedings, automatic stay, bankrupt's estate....
Crystalex Nový Bor: od dedictví IPB k zátěžovému testu českého insolvenčního zákona
Čása, Tomáš ; Richter, Tomáš (advisor) ; Vacek, Pavel (referee)
v Summary The presented work describes and analyzes the course of insolvency proceedings in Crystalex Nový Bor, one of the largest corporate bankruptcies resolved under the Czech Insolvency Act. The core of the work focuses on the description and assessment of the case from the point of view of economic efficiency. The analysis of a large corporate bankruptcy case defined the key aspects of the proceedings and evaluated them in the context of the existing legal framework. The case confirmed a strengthened position of secured creditors, but could not find evidence for opportunistic abuse of this position. The Czech Insolvency Act respected pre- bankruptcy entitlements and the absolute priority rule. On the other hand, the course and the role of the moratorium and delays in the distribution of the liquidation proceeds were weak aspects of the proceedings. The selected method of insolvency resolution through liquidation and sale of the core operating assets together under one contract appeared the most plausible from the point of view of the type of distress in the company. Keywords: case study, financial distress, insolvency, insolvency proceedings, liquidation, asset sale Bibliographic record Čása, Tomáš: "Crystalex Nový Bor: From IPB Heritage to the Loading Test of the Czech Insolvency Act."

International insolvency law
Šerák, Martin ; Brodec, Jan (advisor) ; Pfeiffer, Magdalena (referee)
This thesis focuses primarily on the field of European cross-border insolvency law, currently represented by the EU Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings (EC No 1346/2000). The EU Regulation considered theoretical conflict between advocates of universalism and territorialism, and is generally regarded as reflecting it in a way of modification, which is represented by distinction between main and ancillary insolvency proceedings. Determination of international jurisdiction in the main insolvency proceedings is inherently linked with the criteria of the centre of main interests (COMI), which serves as a specific connecting factor to constitute both the court with jurisdiction and applicable law, for the purpose of the whole insolvency process in accordance with the principle lex fori concursus. The COMI concept is the root of the jurisdiction trouble, thus this thesis aims at providing substantial information on the concept, since the EU Regulation neglects its proper introduction. One of many issues related to COMI conception is a phenomenon of forum shopping, term used to describe situations when debtors manipulate with facts relevant for establishing jurisdiction, in order to obtain more favourable position, usually at creditors' expense. The thesis also deals with another important initiative in...

Rosůlek, Jan ; Pohl, Tomáš (advisor) ; Macková, Alena (referee)
The aim of my diploma thesis is to analyze legislation of the insolvency procedure's impact on the joint assets and how this legislation was changed by the amendment to the Insolvency Act No. 294/2013. This amendment is effective from January 1, 2014 and it brings to the Insolvency Act, inter alia, establishment of a common procedure for a debt relief in a marriage, which was previously only inferred from the case law. Also, there occures a certain refilling and refinement of some provisions of the Insolvency Act in accordance with the case law. This diploma thesis consists of four main chapters. The first chapter deals with the insolvency procedure generally, it presents the necessary conditions for the event, and explains the basic concepts with which it is linked. The second chapter is devoted to general explanations of the joint assets. It defines its content, form in which the joint assets may be located, when and how it arises, and also describes how the joint assets is settled. The third chapter deals with the underlying assets. It is a summary of property that arises for the purposes of insolvency proceedings and from which are the creditors satisfied. This chapter defines the property, which is included in the underlying assets, and also the way to exclude the property from it. There is...

Discharge of a debtor - one of modes of insolvency solution
Polák, Marek ; Smolík, Petr (advisor) ; Zoulík, František (referee)
The legal enactment No. 182/2006 Sb., Insolvency Act that came into force on January 1st 2008 introduced the new concept of Discharge of Debts in the Czech Law system. This mode of solution is intended solely for non-entrepreneurs (this institute cannot be used for companies or individual entrepreneurs). Personal bankruptcies account for the majority of insolvency proceedings in the territory of the Czech Republic and it can be assumed that this long-lasting trend will continue to grow. The institute of Discharge of Debts gives consumers an effective opportunity to legally get rid of their debts through one of two ways, namely repayment schedule and sale of the debtor's assets, and start again with a clean slate as an active member of the Economic Society. The aim of this thesis is to give a comprehensive analysis of the institute of Discharge of Debts, from defining the causes that lead to bankruptcy, interpretation of basic concepts, to the description of the necessary proceedings leading to the declaration of bankruptcy, process of Discharge of Debts itself and differences of its two basic ways. This theoretical basis is supplemented by my knowledge that I have gained during my internship in a law office, which also performs the function of insolvency trustee. The thesis is composed of eight...
Insolvency proceedings with a European international element
Šebková Stráska, Eva ; Smolík, Petr (advisor) ; Zoulík, František (referee)
in English In this thesis, I analyse Council regulation (EC) No 1346/2000 of 29 May 2000 on insolvency proceedings and its practical effects in EU member states' bankruptcy proceedings. The regulation creates a European insolvency law which is aimed at proper functioning of the internal market. The market requires efficient and effective cross-border insolvency proceedings in order to protect creditors. I review interpretations of the principle of controlled universality, Lex fori concursus, recognition of insolvency proceedings, and cooperation of liquidators whose function is to administer or liquidate assets located in various member states. I also examine the process of launching primary and secondary proceedings in relation to the debtor's centre of main interest and to his place of operations where the debtor carries out a non-transitory economic activity with human means and goods. I demonstrate the current legal reasoning of the Court of Justice of the European Union in e.g. the Judgment of the Court (Grand Chamber) of 2 May 2006 in Case C-341/04, Eurofood IFSC Ltd. which interprets Articles 1, 2, 3 and 16 of the regulation, and in the Judgment of the Court (First Chamber) of 21 January 2010 in Case C-444/07, MG Probud Gdynia sp. z o.o., which interprets Articles 3, 4, 16, 17 and 25 of the...
Security interest in relation to insolvency proceedings
Novopacký, Lukáš ; Dvořák, Jan (advisor) ; Elischer, David (referee)
The thesis titled `Security interest in relation to insolvency proceedings' aims to describe the legal institute of lien through its manifestation in insolvency proceedings. It is built on the assumption that the fundamental value of securing a payment of a debt using lien manifests primarily in a scenario when the debtor becomes insolvent and the insolvency proceedings are initiated. Out of all the methods of resolving insolvency present in the Czech legal system this thesis only deals with bankruptcy and it focuses on the lien granted over real estate. Apart from the Introduction and the Conclusion, the thesis is divided into 4 chapters. The first chapter aims to give a general introduction into the law regarding security interests. The second chapter is dedicated to the fundamental principles of law relating to liens outside of the insolvency proceedings. It describes process of granting of a lien and its purpose. The third, essential chapter deals with the execution of a lien in the insolvency proceedings resolving bankruptcy. The main focus is put on the legal position of lienor in the bankruptcy proceedings. The fourh, final chapter presents statistics dealing with insolvency proceedings recovery rate in the Czech republic during the period of 2008-2012.

Štancl, Štěpán ; Pohl, Tomáš (advisor) ; Macková, Alena (referee)
1 Abstract Invalidity and Ineffectiveness of Legal Acts in Insolvency Proceedings The purpose of my thesis is to describe and analyse statutory framework of rules which prevent underlying assets from being unlawfully reduced. The thesis is composed of five chapters which are divided into subchapters. The core of the thesis lies in chapters 4 and 5. Introductory chapter explains collective essence of insolvency proceedings in which claims of creditors are satisfied proportionally. Then it clarifies core of this thesis, i.e. analysis of acts, whom debtor reduces underlying assets, or rather his creditors. It also explicates changes in terminology, which are caused by recodification of civil law. Chapter Two describes development of ineffectiveness since Roman law until the present. Third chapter, concerning civil law, is subdivided into four subchapters. The first defines legal act. Second describes its invalidity.

The first of them deals...
