Staying on the Right Side of Wrongful Trading – Challenges and Risks Facing Directors in the Current Climate

July 8, 2020
Webcast , Countries

Join Duff & Phelps and Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, in association with the Turnaround Management Association (TMA), for a webinar where our panel of experts will discuss the proposed legislative changes to the UK Insolvency Act and how they will impact businesses and company directors.

These changes include a temporary suspension of the wrongful trading rules to remove the threat of directors incurring personal liability during COVID-19. What does this mean for directors making decisions to extend trading while signs of insolvency may be present or reasonably anticipated? We will also take a look at the heightened risk of external threats faced by organisations, the impact of a successful attack and the remedial options available to management. 

Our experts will share insights on:

  • The potential impact of government amendments to insolvency rules, focusing on wrongful trading;
  • What can transpire when wrongful trading advances to more contentious insolvency situations
  • The evolution of external threats to corporate value and the complex asset recovery mechanisms required to undo the damage they cause
  • Personal implications for directors
