In October 2017, the INSOL Europe Annual Congress will be held in Warsaw.
The focus this year will be on “Preventive Restructuring: Sunset on Insolvency?”, one of the most burning issues of our time. Indeed, a proposal for a directive on preventive restructuring frameworks, second chance and measures to increase the efficiency of restructuring, insolvency and discharge procedures and the amending directive 2012/30/EU was published on 22 November 2016 by the EU Commission. INSOL Europe has taken up the role as torchbearer in this field since 2010.
Against this background, the practical implications of this preventive restructuring directive as well as the challenges in the businesses of today will be discussed and real life examples of innovative and creative approaches in distressed situations will be provided. Moreover, the first applications of the new regulation which will have come into force and the question of group insolvencies and insolvency registers will be discussed, not forgetting the implications of Brexit for insolvency and restructuring.
Being one of the co-chairs of INSOL Warsaw, Partner Paweł Kuglarz will be part of the official opening ceremony on 6 October.
