Insolvency Law – An Introductory Guide for Corporate Lawyers
Aimed at corporate lawyers wishing to diversify as a result of the market decline in deals due to COVID-19, this live broadcast session presented by Cristin Toman will provide you with an introduction to insolvency law.
The session will consider what directors of an insolvent company can (and should) do to rescue the company and/or to produce the best outcome for the company’s creditors; and the potential liabilities if they fail to act to safeguard creditors.
It will also consider what companies can do to protect themselves from the risk that a customer will become insolvent, including proposed amendments to the Insolvency Act 1986 which would limit the extent to which suppliers of goods and/or services can exercise their contractual rights to terminate supply in the event of a customer’s insolvency.
