The new restructuring regimes in Europe

Opportunities and challenges for US stakeholders

Event Details

Webinar

Global | April 29, 2021

The economic effects of the pandemic will continue to be felt for years to come. Distressed businesses and their stakeholders need swift access to effective and efficient restructuring procedures to protect value and provide an opportunity for a return to successful operation.

With this in mind, legislators globally are reshaping their restructuring laws in favor of a more debtor-friendly and recovery-focused approach. European jurisdictions in particular are undergoing quite substantial changes in their respective laws following the European Preventive Restructuring Frameworks Directive, which is introducing both opportunities and challenges for stakeholders in the US and beyond.

During this webinar, our colleagues from our Global FRI group will provide a comparative overview of new and existing restructuring frameworks across the Netherlands, Germany and France and will discuss strategic considerations for stakeholders in cross-border restructurings.
