Christopher Andrew Jarvinen, a partner on the Business Reorganization Team of Berger Singerman LLP, recently served as a contributor to the publication, Doing Business 2020, to be published later this year by the World Bank Group.
Originally launched in 2003, the annual Doing Business project, one of the World Bank Group’s most cited flagship publications, compares global business regulations in 190 countries in order to provide an objective basis for understanding and improving the regulatory environment for conducting business around the world. The topic of insolvency is one of the 11 cross-border indicator sets analyzed in the Doing Business report. Every year, the Doing Business report is viewed by millions of people globally. Many of the indicators used in the Doing Business reports also have been incorporated into the indexes of government and private institutions, and it has inspired more than 3,500 reforms in the areas of business regulation.
Mr. Jarvinen has been elected to the American College of Bankruptcy, American Law Institute, and the International Insolvency Institute, and he has served as a Fulbright scholar at the Bankruptcy Law & Restructuring Research Center in Beijing, China. He received his law degree from Boston College Law School, his undergraduate degree in Economics from Brown University, graduate degrees in theological ethics and religion from Harvard Divinity School and Yale Divinity School, a global Executive Master of Business Administration from FGV-EAESP in São Paulo, Brazil and both a Postgraduate Diploma in Organisational Leadership and a Master of Science degree in Major Programme Management from the Saïd Business School of the University of Oxford.
