LexisNexis In-house Conference 2021: Recent Developments on Insolvency and Restructuring in Hong Kong
LexisNexis In-house Conference 2021 (Online)
This in-house CPD conference focuses on the new co-operation mechanism for cross border insolvency arrangement between Hong Kong and the Mainland. We have invited two distinguished speakers, Mr. William M.F. Wong SC, JP & Mr. Look-Chan Ho of Des Voeux Chambers to share their views with regards to this groundbreaking development.
Hong Kong and the Mainland launched the much-awaited co-operation mechanism for cross-border insolvency arrangement. Under the new agreement, Hong Kong liquidators may apply to Mainland courts for recognition of insolvency proceedings in Hong Kong, whilst bankruptcy administrators from the Mainland may apply to the Hong Kong High Court for recognition of bankruptcy proceedings in the Mainland. This is the most momentous cross-border insolvency development in a generation.
