civil restructuring?


Explanation:
Minji (民事) is a civil action as opposed to a criminal (刑事) one.

I'm not sure what the exact difference is between saisei (再生) and kousei (更生), just that the latter was used on last night's financial news.

Google has 14 hits for 民事再生.

民事再生


Explanation:
According to the Eijiro dictionary, 民事再生法の適用を裁判所に申請する equates to "apply to the court for bankruptcy rehabilitation," suggesting that the 民事再生法 would be the bankruptcy protection law. By extention, 民事再生 would be a corporate restructuring in response to going bankrupt.

Hope this helps!

agree  Maynard Hogg: Eijiro's glosses require caution--here, because there are THREE such laws.

Corporate Reorganization Law


Explanation:
I saw Corporate Rehabilitation Law in the Japan Times yesterday, but, when I checked Google, I found that this was the (unofficial) translation for 会社更生法. This is separate from the new "fast track" Corporate Reorganization Law (民事再生法).

No, I don't know why the Japan Times capitalizes the former, but not the latter.

The URL below has both.
