Morrison & Foerster’s International Insolvency Webinar: Implications of Brazilian Insolvency Reform

06 May 2021 04:00 p.m. - 05:00 p.m. EDT

Brazil’s newly enacted insolvency law introduces reforms meant to expedite domestic restructurings and liquidations and to enable courts in Brazil to recognize foreign insolvency proceedings and work more closely with courts in other parts of the world. As is true for any new law, the practical implications will be revealed only after the law is applied in cases to be filed in the coming months and years.

These post pandemic innovations to Brazilian insolvency practice will be the focus of this timely webinar. You are invited to join a moderated conversation involving distinguished practitioners from Brazil and the United States. They will present their perspectives on the impact of the new law and notable recent restructurings in the U.S. and Brazil.

Panelists will include:

  • The Honorable James M. Peck, Head of Morrison & Foerster’s Cross-Border Restructuring Practice
  • Thomas Benes Felsberg, Founding Partner, Felsberg Advogados

Moderation by:

  • Lorenzo Marinuzzi, Global Co-Chair of Morrison & Foerster's Business Restructuring & Insolvency Group
