TRENDS legal magazine – Insolvency & Restructuring No 1 (January-February 2020)

As the outgoing Executive Director, passing over my task to Rafael Blanco in the New Year, I am delighted to introduce the FIRST of our on-line Magazines on Insolvency & Reconstruction, introducing you to our Co-Chairs, Peter Krarup who handled the major Danish Insolvency Settlement, of Arnold Busck, booksellers and Monika Lorenzo-Perez who practices out of London who chair this Practice Group which meets virtually every month or so.

Insolvency has exploded, literally, as a direct consequence of Covid 19 – but much more important, Restructuring, following insolvency, will now be mushrooming . As with the Spanish Flu pandemic a hundred years ago, the world will emerge, more or less, intact sometime in the foreseeable future when vaccines or whatever is the practical solution arrives.

Then the real and vast task of Restructuring will commence. It will involve all sorts of new measures – regulations, statutes, decided case law; it will be local and it will be cross-border and it will be international. The needs and opportunities – for those capable & energetic, competent & visionary – in sorting out and taking advantage – will be legion.

The Law Firm Network, through its Insolvency & Restructuring Practice Group along with its Real Estate Practice Group, is perfectly placed to assist.
