Seminars

Breakfast seminar: Will the English scheme still be the procedure of choice post-Brexit? - Tuesday 25 September 2018

Through the use of a simple case study, Jennifer Marshall, Partner, and Lucy Aconley, Senior Associate, from A&O’s Restructuring & Insolvency team, will consider the impact of Brexit on European cross-border insolvency and restructuring proceedings (including the English scheme of arrangement). Consideration will be given to where Brexit discussions seem to be heading in this area, what other sources of cross-border insolvency law will remain available, and how Brexit might impact on some of the choice of law safe-harbours that are important to those structuring transactions.
