Business Insolvency Update

Business Insolvency Update
Add to CPD Planner


Although the economy is generally performing well, a number of sectors are still under significant financial pressure. As a result, insolvency law has not been standing still. The last four years have seen a number of significant developments in the insolvency landscape – through the determination of landmark court cases, legislative developments and new regulatory regimes.

Having a good understanding of these recent developments and the market factors which are increasingly influencing formal insolvencies is key to ensuring you can provide practical and pragmatic advice to your clients on any insolvency issues which may arise.

This webinar will consider some of the key recent developments and discuss how they will impact your clients both in an insolvency context and in their day-to-day business operations.

Topics covered will include:

  • The new retentions regime for the construction industry
  • Developments in corporate rescue
  • Voidable transactions
  • Actions by liquidators against directors and advisors
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Practical implications of the proposed regulation of insolvency practitioners.

Learning objectives

After this webinar you will be:

  • Informed and up-to-date on the key contemporary issues in business insolvencies.
  • Able to provide pragmatic and practical advice to clients dealing with insolvency related issues.
