Hot offshore topics in cross-border insolvency

How does Guernsey’s cross-border insolvency framework interact with those of other jurisdictions? Will Guernsey’s new Companies Law affect this?

 

Topics to be covered includes: 

  • Policy: why states give judicial assistance and recognition to insolvency proceedings (and why they sometimes don’t)
  • Strategy: how to sequence and get judicial assistance and recognition in insolvency proceedings in other jurisdictions and in Guernsey
  • Law:
    • Changes to Guernsey’s insolvency legal framework [power to wind up foreign companies, increased powers to office holders]
    • Routes to judicial assistance and recognition
    • The recognition of receivers after Silk Road Funds
    • Use or abuse of extraterritorial powers in Guernsey (IA 1986, ss.236 & 423)
    • Brexit bonus: will London’s loss be Guernsey’s gain in international restructuring?”
