IWIRC Europe & TL4 FIRE present: The Insolvency Practitioners’ toolkit in Europe and Beyond

Highlights

The panel, composed of European lawyers, IP practitioners and investigators, will discuss insolvency tools available across Europe and worldwide in support of asset recovery in the context of complex international commercial disputes and fraud cases, in particular:

  • Institution of insolvency proceedings (COMI, specific requirements, measures taken prior to appointment, funding options, Rogue/fake creditors obstructing matters/ appointment, interim relief, jurisdiction of domestic Courts over foreign companies and issues of enforcement)
  • Domestic effects of insolvency and bankruptcy, IP powers to collate information, documents, interview relevant individuals, other powers?
  • Consequences for recognition abroad of insolvency decrees (requirements, limitations, powers of foreign insolvency office holders)
  • Identifying and securing assets abroad: investigation, disclosure, freezing and interim orders, using offshore structures as litigation tools (receiver/ trustee appointment)
  • Specific jurisdiction nuances/ trends
