Rome is still burning: who has the most efficient insolvency system?
Tuesday 10 October (1115 - 1230)
Creditors' Rights Subcommittee
Building on the results of a panel discussion at the 20th Annual Global Insolvency and Restructuring Conference in Barcelona, 18-20 May 2014, this interactive panel revisits the important issue of the cost-efficiency of insolvency proceedings. The discussion will involve experienced insolvency practitioners from jurisdictions such as Singapore and Italy, which have recently reformed their insolvency laws, a judge from Australia who has been involved in recent high-profile cases, and a representative from the World Bank Group, with the aim to find out which elements make for a time and cost-effective insolvency procedure.
