Leaving stormy waters to sail away for new horizons

Insolvency is often linked to a certain fatalism, especially in times of crisis. 

How could we blame such an assessment considering the successive distressful events that we are facing since 2019 for various reasons (COVID-19, energy crisis, etc…)?

However, insolvency may also mean a fresh start for companies, and even new business opportunities. Distress situations may also enable companies to rethink their models, strategies, and approach to the market. 

Moreover, nowadays, more jurisdictions provide with pre-insolvency tools that would allow a turnaround before it is too late. Many legislators shape their insolvency legislations in a flexible way in order to adapt the tools to each situation and favour restructuring (as opposed to bankruptcy) while maintaining a balance between various (antagonistic)interests (existing creditors, new lenders, old shareholders, new shareholders, etc.).

The challenges go beyond the restructuring in itself. Once the crisis peak is overcome, what would be the most effective strategies to attract investors and to deal with creditors while a company undergoes a long-term reorganisation? Do we see newcomers in the restructuring landscape?

We are very pleased to invite you to join this seminar where we will seek to shed a new light on insolvency and highlight the business opportunities behind pre-insolvency, insolvency and beyond. The programme will also provide sound input and guidance from lenders/investors’ perspective, which will enlighten our legal horizons as legal practitioners.

The event is organised in cooperation with the Young Member Group of INSOL Europe and AIJA. The last seminar that the two parties organised together was in-person event on Mallorca in June 2019, which was a huge success.

The seminar will take place in Seville, Spain, a beautiful city where modernity and Andalusian traditions merge to form a unique atmosphere. Seville is the perfect place to continue to strengthen our ties and to enjoy a memorable social moment that we prefer to be kept secret at this stage! We count on you!
