Arbitration and mediation in insolvency - a sword and a shield for the officeholder

Tuesday 31 October (1615 - 1730)

Room 342 A, Level 3


Insolvency Section (Lead)


The panel will consider this topic from two distinct perspectives; firstly, what is the impact of a supervening insolvency upon stakeholders’ existing rights to arbitrate their disputed claims? Secondly, how can the officeholder use alternative dispute resolution procedures in order to accelerate the adjudication of creditor claims and the collection of debtor balances in the insolvent estate?
