UK Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 – assessing the potential impact of moving to a more debtor-friendly restructuring regime, temporary measures as a result of Covid-19, and a comparison with Denmark

Join us alongside fellow member company UHY Hacker Young for a webinar discussing the new Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act and the attempt to move to a more permanent debtor led restructuring regime in the UK, as well as temporary measures to protect companies in difficulty as a result of the pandemic. We will also briefly compare this with the current system in Denmark, and consider potential future cross-border implications following the UK’s exit from the EU.
