    Stockholm One Day Seminar

    Stockholm One Day Seminar

    Date
    22-05-2019
    Location
    Stockholm, Sweden
    Following on from our successful 2018 seminar in Helsinki, INSOL International is delighted to announce our first seminar to take place in the beautiful city of Stockholm. This seminar is organised in association with INSOL Europe and with the support of restructuring professionals from across the Nordic region.

    As the largest city and Capital of Sweden, Stockholm is comprised of 14 islands and more than 50 bridges across the Baltic Sea archipelago. Enjoy the cobblestone streets of the old Town, waterways and parks of the city area, or its wide range of shopping centres, museums and restaurants; Stockholm has something to offer whatever your tastes.

    The programme includes sessions on:
    • the implementation of the EU Directive and the practical challenges faced in Nordic countries;
    • restructuring in the region, focusing on the ongoing Componenta Group restructuring in Finland and Sweden;
    • the impact of Brexit; and
    • board directors’ liabilities. 
    The seminar will culminate with cocktails and dinner at Villa Källhagen, with stunning views of the Djurgårdsbrunn canal and the Nordic Museum.

    EECC Conference 2019 - Ljubljana, Slovenia

    EECC Conference 2019 - Ljubljana, Slovenia

    Date
    06-06-2019 to 07-06-2019
    Location
    Ljubljana, Slovenia


    We are delighted to invite you to Ljubljana, Slovenia, a land of legends and myths, to the EECC Conference on ‘Navigating the journey of distressed companies’.

    Slovenia had a high number of insolvent companies as a result of the 2008 global financial crisis, features of restructuring procedures not suited and no preventive procedures available. In the last couple of years, Slovenia introduced preventive restructuring procedures for medium and large-size companies, simplified reorganization procedures for micro and small-size companies and improved access to reorganization proceedings for creditors. These reforms increased the number of successful reorganization cases and ranked Slovenia as number 9 at Resolving Insolvency (World Bank Doing Business Report 2019), with an 88.7 cents on the dollar recovery rate, 0.8 years and 4% of the estate cost. Slovenia is the perfect place for our 15th EECC Conference!

    AIJA-INSOL Europe Joint Conference, Mallorca 2019

    Date

    INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF YOUNG LAWYERS / Young Members Group – INSOL EUROPE
    Insolvency Joint Conference - 13-15 June 2019 Mallorca
    Make twilight a new dawn: defensive and offensive strategies in insolvency matters.

    REGISTRATION NOW OPEN HERE

    Make twilight a new dawn:
    Defensive and offensive strategies in insolvency matters

    It is a given that in insolvency matters, the receiver is caught in the crossfire of opposing interests and offensive/defensive strategies. Entering an arrangement with creditors is an “offensive strategy” adopted by the company to tackle a crisis, especially for the purpose of a debt haircut. The flip side is the receiver can use the “offensive strategy“ to assert the shareholders’ liability, but the shareholders can also defend themselves by taking a variety of actions against the receiver.

    In light of these opposing interests, the seminar will seek to challenge and analyse the multilateral views and conflicts between all participants involved in insolvency proceedings. The programme will also explore their options to attack or defend themselves.

    R3 & INSOL Europe's International Restructuring Conference

    Date
    11-07-2019
    Location
    London WC1H 0HX

    This conference is an analysis of the “cutting edge” of the international restructuring sphere. The incredibly fast-paced and dynamic qualities of the sector mean we must adapt and change with it. Again and again this conference has proved that it is ahead of the curve, anticipating the upcoming trends in the market and providing detailed insight into them. This year will be no different. If you want to stay ahead of the game, attendance is a must.
     
    Attendees will enjoy ample networking opportunities during the breakfast, lunch, refreshments breaks and networking drinks reception at the end of the day. Delegates will also receive a copy of speaker presentations in the delegate pack.
     
    This is a technical conference aimed at all insolvency and restructuring professionals who have an interest in cross-border matters, including insolvency practitioners, lawyers, financial advisers, lenders, distressed asset investors, judges and academics. This conference is relevant for professionals working in jurisdictions across Europe and beyond. An international line up of speakers to be announced!

    The programme will include:
    • Detailed cross-border case studies of two of the most important cross-border cases of recent years, Agrokor and Steinhoff, from some of the key players in both
    • A panel session on the NPL landscape, the new tools to weather it and the new players entering the market
    • A panel session on the different approaches being taken in the UK and Europe in regard to pre-insolvency procedures and the potential for this to be a new battle ground​

    INSOL Europe Annual Congress 2019: Copenhagen, Denmark

    INSOL Europe Annual Congress 2019: Copenhagen, Denmark

    Date
    26-09-2019 to 29-09-2019
    Location
    Copenhagen, Denmark


    We are pleased to announce that our 2019 Congress will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 26 – 29 September and registration is now open.
     
    The Academic Conference will be 25 & 26 September 2019.

    We will be using the philosophical theme and title “(Un)necessary preventive restructuring frameworks: Where are the limits?” for our Congress and this is a reference to the proposals which are being implemented by the EU – proposals which are designed to avoid insolvency. The programme will be wide and diverse with many topics covered: we believe they will be interesting and stimulate discussion and debate.

    Copenhagen is located at the most important approach to the Baltic Sea on the eastern side of Denmark and is now connected to Malmo in Sweden by way of the spectacular Oresund Bridge. The bridge is part tunnel and takes trains as well and this innovative approach is certainly something which the Danes are renowned for. 

    The Scandic Copenhagen hotel is centrally located with scenic views of the Lakes and within walking distance of many of the city’s attractions. Also nearby is the popular Meat-packing District (Kødbyen) where you’ll find many of the city’s chic restaurants and classy underground bars.
