Cross-Border Asset Recovery Through Insolvency - Current Rules & Future Developments
This new live broadcast session deals with the main insolvency claims by creditors and officeholders to recover assets belonging to the insolvent company or individual, including reversing transactions defrauding creditors, transactions at an undervalue and preferences.
The session will have a particular focus on the international context - when the English court has jurisdiction to wind up a foreign company or make a foreign individual bankrupt and when the English courts will assist a foreign officeholder. It will consider the rules which apply to EU and non-EU insolvencies and discuss what will likely happen to cross-border insolvency after Brexit.
