Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act Workshop
PwC Barbados and WeirFoulds LLP present a one-day workshop on Barbados’s Bankrupcy and Insolvency Act and other developments in insolvency law, addressing the pressing issues that counsel in Barbados and the Caribbean are facing today.
You will learn how to navigate the legislation and understand what options are available for your clients, with speakers sharing insights from their experiences working under Canada’s Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, the model for Barbados’ legislation, and throughout the Caribbean.
The speakers will focus on restructuring and advise on how companies can get “breathing room” from creditors so they can re-organize and find ways to deal with financial crises.
