NACIIL / NVRII annual meeting - 2019

Distressed debt trading: brave new EU legal rules in relation to bold new strategies


Thursday December 12, 2019
Location: Jones Day, Amsterdam



Can creditors become too strong and powerful? And whose interests are at stake?

The NACIIL annual meeting 2019 is dedicated to distressed debt trading

First, the International Private Law developments in this field will be set out and reflected upon, with a focus on the Proposed EU Regulation on the Law Applicable to the Third-Party Effect of Assignment of Claims.

Secondly, the question will be dealt with how the landscape of insolvency law and practice changes by the emergence of loan to own strategies via credit bids. Speakers will discuss current developments and critically asses the direction insolvency law is taking.
