Descripción
Fide Foundation holds this session using the online platform Microsoft Teams. To attend, It is essential to confirm attendance through the platform of AreaFide. This session will be carried out in English.

Speakers:
- Robert Honeywell, Head of Bankruptcy & Restructuring Practice at Curtis International Law Firm
- Adrián Thery, Head of the Restructuring & Insolvency Department at Garrigues Law Firm

Moderator: Francisco Garcimartin, Chair Professor of Private International Law at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Member of Fide's Academic Council.

Objectives
In this session we will analyse, from a comparative-law perspective, the legal framework governing insolvencies in the USA and in Spain and we will comment on the advantages and disadvantages of either system. In particular, in a restructuring scenario, we will focus on the most relevant tools contained in Chapter 11 (US «Bankruptcy Code») and in the Spanish bankruptcy law and the consequences of using one system or the other. This analysis may be very relevant in the context of the implementation of the EU Restructuring Directive in our country, since this instrument follows the Chapter 11 system.

Schedule: The session will be held between 4:00pm and 5:30pm (GMT +1, Madrid) using the online platform Microsoft Teams.

Academic Coordinator: Carmen Hermida (carmen.hermida@fidefundacion.es)
