An accessible and predictable insolvency regime is critical to a functioning market economy, particularly in a time of financial distress. It provides valuable and necessary breathing room to worried businesses so they can redeploy resources, maximize the value of ongoing concerns and preserve jobs. An efficient insolvency system builds confidence among credit providers, reduces borrowing costs and credit risk, and mitigates the stigma of bankruptcy.

Barbados' Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act offers legal and financial professionals the tools they need to achieve these objectives for clients.

As Barbados and the Caribbean continue to grow as a centre for foreign investment and transnational commercial activity, practitioners must understand how to navigate the region's emerging modern insolvency regime.

Join us for a one-day workshop to learn how to put the legislation into practice. Speakers will share their insights and experiences working under Canada's Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, the model for Barbados' legislation, as well as lessons learned from dealing with bankruptcy and insolvency throughout the Caribbean and abroad.

The workshop will cover:

  • Barbados' Insolvency Regime – How Times are Changing: An Overview of the Most Important Aspects of the Insolvency Regime
  • Sharing of Insights and Experience using Canada's Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act
  • Managing a Financially Strapped Company: Putting the Legislation Into Practice
  • Priorities: Who Should Get What, Why, When, Where and How?
  • Critical Issues Facing Court-Appointed Officers Today: Lessons Learned

The workshop is co-hosted by WeirFoulds LLP and PwC in Barbados.
