The world has changed in the past few months. As COVID-19 swept the globe and economies were shuttered, governments provided unprecedented levels of support to help businesses survive and to avoid massive bankruptcies. So too were insolvency regimes adapted to make them more debtor friendly.

The actions taken by the governments during the pandemic confirm the general trend towards state interference in strategically important sectors.

In recognition of this, the Insolvency Commission is holding 2 webinars during its Commission Day on 10 November 2020 on state intervention in insolvent companies.

The first session will be a debate between rival groups of panellists arguing for and against the following proposition: To act or not to act, that is the question: should states ever protect insolvent companies or intervene in insolvency proceedings? During the session, the participants will be encouraged to vote on the main topics and, at the end, choose the winners.

The second session will be a comparative law seminar on the different insolvency measures introduced by states in response to COVID-19. The session complements the forthcoming jurisdictional guide being published by the Insolvency Commission.

Both sessions will include practical tips to help members advise clients on the opportunities and pitfalls of the measures discussed.

Of course, no AIJA event would be complete without making time to socialise. This day is no exception and a social event will conclude the proceedings.

The day will start at 3pm CET with a welcome session when time will also be made for new members to introduce themselves (should they wish), and for members to raise any business. The seminars will then follow with breaks for members to check their emails etc. The social event will commence at around 6.15pm and the day will end at around 7.15pm CET.

We look forward to welcoming you on 10 November
