Six months have passed since the UK’s lockdown. With no immediate signs of a vaccine, it remains unclear how long we will continue to live with Covid restrictions. The economic fallout is staggering and the pressure many businesses are facing is unprecedented. Significant changes were made to the UK’s legal framework to help restructuring professionals address problems faced by distressed businesses (the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 or CIGA). Rules laid down in the act have recently been reviewed, with some changed and updated. In this webinar we will reflect on the position.

In this dispute resolution webinar Helen Pugh, Barrister at 3 Hare Court, will join our specialists Mark Lim and Fraser McKeating to bring you up to date on practical and legal issues facing businesses operating during the pandemic.

 

We will cover a range of issues including:

  • Director risk from over-trading – where are we now?
  • Restrictions preventing termination for insolvency and work-arounds
  • Limitation on debt recovery tools such as statutory demands
  • Rescue through administrations – the company and creditor perspectives
  • Practical changes at the court – what is happening in practice?

The webinar will be provided using Webex. If you or a colleague would like to register your interest in attending, please use the ‘register your interest’ button above.

 

This event is aimed at in-house lawyers, contract managers, insolvency professionals and others involved in managing financial affairs or handling risk.
