Our Conference program is taking shape thanks to our technical committee – Jean Baron (CBF Associés), Sergey Boyarchukov (Alekseev, Boyarchukov and partners), Roman Marchenko (Ilyashev & Partners), Anton Molchanov (Arzinger) with the title: ‘Tectonic Changes in Ukrainian and International Insolvency

Kyiv is located on the Dnieper River. At the banks of the river, stands a monument dedicated to the city’s founders, depicting a boat with the three brothers armed with spears and a bow standing at the stern and their sister standing on the prow with her arms stretched as opening for a new beginning. This evocative image, the embodiment of struggle, determination and courage, is illustrated today by Ukrainian insolvency professionals. This means that the Ukrainian insolvency profession is full of opportunities. On 21 October 2019 the Ukrainian Code on Bankruptcy Proceedings, adopted earlier this year, became effective. 

The new law aims to strengthen the rights of creditors, improve the procedure of debtors’ assets sale at bankruptcy auctions, provide precise mechanisms for restoring the solvency of debtors, and enhance the overall efficiency of bankruptcy proceedings. The Code introduces the concepts of personal bankruptcy and simplifies corporate bankruptcy. Moreover, their efforts of creating an Insolvency Practitioners’ Association have paid off, and recently they had their first general meeting. Similar to the Dnieper, as legend states, blessed by his father to transform into a river and catch up to his sister, Ukrainian insolvency practitioners are moving fast and we look forward to sampling a little bit of their innovative practice.

It is this determination that makes Ukraine the perfect place for our 16th EECC Conference! 

The EECC Conference will bring you knowledge, widen your network, stimulate your innovative self and expand your vision while providing a relaxing and memorable time in this beautiful city. We are very excited about this event and look forward to welcoming you in Kyiv. Registration will be open soon.
