The MUST ATTEND forum for professional advisors who represent creditors or debtors.

The uncertain and tumultuous economic conditions we live under continue to create a challenging environment for turning around companies facing financial distress. You must be up-to-date on the latest insolvency trends, case law and best practices.

There is an ever-pressing obligation for professional advisors to be up-to-date with the latest insolvency trends, case law and best practices. Whether you represent creditors or debtors, it is critical that you have a current and complete understanding of the latest insolvency and restructuring issues in order to get the best results for your client. Developed for industry leaders and professionals, by leading corporate insolvency practitioners and industry experts, this OsgoodePD one-day forum Corporate Insolvency and Restructuring will give you the insights and perspectives on how to deal with the legal and financial issues developing in this period of intensified activity. Topics include:
