IBA Global Insolvency and Restructuring Conference

Our partner Gion Jegher discusses current litigation topics from the insolvency sector in the panel "Litigation in distressed situations"

The IBA, the world's leading organisation for international lawyers, has just held its Annual Global Insolvency and Restructuring Conference, this time in Zurich. Prager Dreifuss was one of the seven law firms on the host committee.

The two keynote speakers gave interesting insights into the rescue of the Swiss Credit Suisse and the insolvency of German Wirecard. There were six panels with lawyers from around the world discussing topics of restructuring and insolvency law. Cia Mackle (Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones, Los Angeles), Alexandra Szekely (Le 16 Law, Paris), Guilherme Fontes Bechara (Demarest Advogados, Sao Paulo) and Dr Gion Jegher (Prager Dreifuss, Zurich) took part in the panel "Litigation in distressed situations" and discussed hot litigation topics from the insolvency universe.

A guided tour of the exhibition of the Swiss painter Ferdinand Hodler at the Kunsthaus Zürich provided a fitting conclusion to the well-organised conference.
