A seminar series on the key legal aspects of restructuring .

CMS is pleased to introduce a series of three breakfast seminars: “Restructuring Wednesdays”. In these seminars we will tackle the key issues that regularly arise in the course of the restructuring of assets and liabilities of troubled companies from both a creditor and debtor perspective. The seminars will provide insight for a wide audience, including bankers, in-house lawyers, financial advisors, CFOs and private equity and real estate investors.

The seminars will be run by Slovak and English qualified partners and senior associates. Participation in the seminars is free and it is open for you to take part in all sessions, or only in those of your specific areas of interest.

We will also assess the common hurdles that may arise in the restructuring process and address how they may be resolved.

Wednesday 9 October – Foreclosure of collateral

This session will explore the different ways of conducting a foreclosure and enforcement process for the various asset classes, in particular, real estate. We will analyse the benefits and disadvantages of the available options.

Wednesday 23 October – Insolvency

This session will examine the methods available to deal with insolvency, factors influencing the choice of process as well as advantages and disadvantages of judicial bankruptcy liquidations. We will also consider director’s liability issues related to insolvencies. Our lawyers will discuss the latest case law that may be relevant mainly from the creditors’ perspective.
