The British-American Business Association's
Financial Services Committee
Invites Members and Colleagues to a panel discussion on
"UK and US Insolvency Issues"
DATE: Wednesday, June 30, 2021
TIME: 11:00am - 12:00noon - EDT
A video link will be emailed to registered guests 24 hours before the event.
The event is focused on the status of insolvency in the US and UK. Covid has greatly impacted certain industries and insolvency has been a topic of focus since the beginning of the pandemic. However, actual insolvency issues have developed quite differently than expected in many markets. This panel will be a combined group of US and UK insolvency practitioners sharing experiences and expectations for the near future.
