The Scope of the project is to share information regarding the impact of Covid 19 on insolvency and restructuring  proceedings focusing essentially on the following arguments:

  • Commercial/insolvency urgent measures adopted worldwide revisiting fundamentals of (i) company law: (i.e. capital maintenance, adequate assets, going concern, subordination of claim for new finance, and other aspects), and of (ii) insolvency law (i.e. modifications to restructuring plans)
  • Impact of Covid-19 on Courts and their organizations
  • "Private" negotiations between debtors, creditors and stakeholders; or strengthening judicial proceedings?  Which could be the best solution to manage the emergency and the post-emergency?
  • Specific problematics of each State in approaching the Covid-19 emergency
  • Impact of Covid-19 on specific sectors of business (tourism, airlines companies, automotive, railways, insurance, etc.)
  • What's next?
