AIJA/INSOL Europe Mallorca Joint Insolvency Seminar

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.
