In one of the first cases of its kind, US Chapter 15 was used to recognize a French sale process in the cross-border acquisition of Viadeo, a French / US based social networking platform, by the Figaro Group.

They analyzed the added value of combining French and US laws in this matter in an article published by Corporate Counsel (Focus Restructuring, Winter 2017), entitled “Innovative play between French and US laws: the cross-border acquisition of Viadeo a French/US-based social networking platform”.
