    Insolvency Joint Conference - 13-15 June 2019 Mallorca
    Make twilight a new dawn: defensive and offensive strategies in insolvency matters.

    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.

    EECC Conference 2019 - Ljubljana, Slovenia

    EECC Conference 2019 - Ljubljana, Slovenia

    Date
    06-06-2019
    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!

    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.

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.
