This year’s annual Turnaround Management Association Europe annual conference will take place on Friday 7 June, it has been confirmed.
Delegates attending the TMAE event will be debating plans to amend European insolvency regulations for dealing with cross-border restructurings.
An all-female panel of leading restructuring lawyers will focus on the review being carried out by the European Union on insolvency regulation, re-examining regulations first put in place ten years ago.
Conference co-chair Enrica Maria Ghia of Studio Legale Ghia, said the debate is an important issue affecting the restructuring community throughout Europe at the moment.
She added: “This debate will be an ideal opportunity for delegates to get up to speed with the main arguments and possible implications from experts in the field.”
Proposed changes to the regulations include clarification of a debtors ‘centre of main interest’ and amendments to cover groups.
Controversially, the review is also recommending that the English Company law ‘scheme of arrangements’ process – to enable companies with a connection in England to restructure debt without the stigma of insolvency – is included in the draft EU revision.
The debate will be facilitated by Jenny Clift, of United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) that works to harmonise rules on international business.
Panellists will include Louise Verrill, head of Brown Rudnick’s European Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring Group, and Sonia Jordan, partner at Dentons’ London office.
TMA Europe’s sixth annual conference on European cross-border restructuring is being held at The Landmark Hotel, London.
