Recent amendments to the bankruptcy laws now offers insolvency practitioners more opportunities for revenue.
The objective of an insolvency procedure is to maximise the returns to creditors. The mechanism used to achieve this will depend on circumstances and the availability of assets. In many cases, an insolvency practitioner will attempt to rescue the business if this will provide a better return for the creditors.
As the Singapore court appears to be taking a more proactive approach in protecting insolvent companies, parties who find themselves dealing with a contractual counterparty in financial difficulty are also acting swiftly to protect their position, and to have the best chances of minimising losses and maximising chances of recovery.
This highly practical workshop will look at what insolvency protection means to the various stakeholders, and will be relevant to insolvency practitioners, directors and managers. It will provide practical pointers on how suppliers, contractors and customers of an insolvent company can protect themselves. Directors and Managers will also learn how they can protect their companies’ assets against insolvency and rescue methods available when insolvent.
This workshop qualifies for 7.0 CPE hours Insolvency and Restructuring (Category 4).
