Ogier R&I specialist Mathew Newman to chair INSOL debate on the insolvency and restructuring of cellular companies around the world

Ogier's head of Dispute Resolution in Guernsey, partner Advocate Mathew Newman, will chair a panel discussing cellular companies from a variety of different jurisdictions, including Guernsey, at INSOL International Channel Islands' one day seminar in Guernsey on 13 September 2017.  

The panel will focus on the insolvency and restructuring of cellular companies, including protected cell companies, the problems encountered and the solutions found by restructuring professionals in those jurisdictions. 

Advocate Newman, also a member of the conference's main organising committee, said: "This is the fourth INSOL Channel Islands event, and the second to be held in Guernsey. We are expecting more than 150 delegates from Guernsey, Jersey, the UK and beyond, which should make for a very interesting debate on some of the current key issues facing insolvency practitioners and other restructuring professionals in the offshore arena. I am very much looking forward to it."

Nick Vermeulen from PricewaterhouseCoopers in Guernsey will also be on the panel, together with Alex Potts from Sedgewick Chudleigh in Bermuda and Grant Jones from Simons Gainsford in Gibraltar.

Other panel sessions will focus on virtual currencies and their interaction with insolvency and restructuring, schemes of arrangements and a legal update from a variety of jurisdictions including Jersey and Guernsey. 

Ogier is a platinum sponsor of the event, with partners Simon Davies and Nigel Sanders, and counsels Alex Horsbrugh-Porter and Nicola Roberts – each of whom is a restructuring and insolvency specialist – also attending.
