No, not Lehman.  Though  much smaller in monetary terms (probably), a filing by BP would likely be the biggest international insolvency case in engaging the U.S. public interest, and probably its ire.  And what of a BP filing in its jurisdiction of registry?  A BP filing in the U.K. seems sure to create a cross-the-Pond furor not seen since the late 1700s, or so this BusinessWeek article suggests .  One line from that article particularly intrigued me:  "No doubt London courts would deliver an outcome more favorable to BP.

This will make Greece one of several EU member states to have amended national insolvency rules in line with the model rules, thereby creating a set of rules that will complement the provisions of the EU Insolvency Regulation (1346/2000/EC). The adoption of the model law is unlikely to have significant practical consequences, as there have been relatively few international insolvency proceedings affecting Greece, and there have been only two published decisions on the EU ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Tighter coordination and planning to avoid future banking crises
A special system should be set up to ensure that crises are resolved earlier and to avoid rushed, weekend bank bailouts costing the taxpayer hundreds of billions of euros, says the European Parliament in a resolution passed on Wednesday. The growing size, complexity and interconnectedness of banks means that such a system must be established at European level. In the resolution, drafted by Elisa Ferreira (EPP, PT) and adopted by a show of hands, MEPs urge the European Commission to submit by the end of the year one or more draft laws relating to the management of cross-border crises in the banking sector. In particular they call ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What recourse does the Western world have in response to Russian ...
A proper answer to this question requires a book. Anyway, let's start from the beginning. The largest part of blame for this war goes to Jozif Vissarionovic Dzhugashvili (a.k.a. Stalin). No kidding. He was Georgian, and he knew all too well the situation in the Caucasus. In order to keep the Soviet Republics inherently weak, he designed their boundaries to include bits and pieces of other populations within their borders. This machiavelli-like move created ethnic tensions that kept those Republics politically weak, allowing Moscow to hold a firm grasp on them. When Georgia declared its independence in 1991 (does anyone else ...
