Explains the procedure to be followed by a UK based liquidator wishing to serve insolvency proceedings on parties based in the US under the Insolvency Rules 1986 r.12.12. Discusses the rule's requirements for obtaining leave of the court for service outside the jurisdiction, the court's discretion to order the manner of service, including the approach of the Chancery Division in Re Busytoday Ltd, and the obligations imposed by the Hague Convention on the Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters 1965. Evaluates the methods of service authorised by the Convention and details the main elements involved in service by the Central Authority route or by a local process server.
