Insolvency Institute

GRR Live New York

One Liberty Plaza
New York, NY
September 26, 2018

Chaired by Donald Bernstein, Davis Polk & Wardwell and Lisa Schweitzer, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, this event will also feature a keynote address by Justice Kannan Ramesh, Supreme Court of Singapore

Sessions include:

  • Enforceability: This session will look beyond UNCITRAL to recent case law and ask: to what extent do these judgments throw out the outcomes of insolvency processes? How will this uncertainty affect would-be insolvency hubs that have few local contacts with debtors or creditors?
  • Does Europe need a Chapter 11? A perspective from the US: The new EU pre-insolvency law incorporates Chapter 11-like features such as the availability of a stay, protections for lenders providing new money, and absolute priority rule-like elements. Some European member states have found it difficult to digest these directives. The panel will discuss the advantages of adopting a uniform system, whether Chapter 11 should be extended to the rest of the world or would that be risking “insolvency imperialism”?
