Comparative law notes

This is the most generic translation of Anfechtungsklage and covers all iterations of this cause of action. Depending on the context, additional phrasing may supplemented such as in an insolvency context when the insolvency administrator is seeking to avoid a transaction and recover or claw-back the asset into the debtor's estate: "action for avoidance and asset recovery".
