Four partners from Ogier's global Dispute Resolution team will join panel discussions on key issues related to offshore restructuring and cross-border insolvency in a jointly sponsored conference with leading set of commercial barristers South Square this month.
Ogier partner Marc Kish, who heads Ogier's insolvency team in the Caribbean and Asia, and Ogier's head of BVI dispute resolution Brian Lacy will speak on "Navigating Offshore: The latest developments in offshore restructuring techniques". They will be joined by barrister Adam Al-Attar from South Square and restructuring leader Alan Hudson from EY.
The second panel will explore the use of court appointed receivers in offshore insolvency and asset recovery scenarios. Ogier's Head of Dispute Resolution in Jersey, Nick Williams, will speak alongside partner Mathew Newman, who leads Ogier's Guernsey Dispute Resolution team. They will also be joined by South Square's William Willson and Jeremy Goldring, and Mark Shaw, Head of Restructuring at BDO.
Brian Lacy said "There have been dramatic developments in recent years both in the innovative deployment of Court appointed receivers and the role played by offshore jurisdictions in global restructurings – including the availability of soft-touch liquidation in the BVI following the QGOG decision. We are delighted to be speaking, together with such esteemed barristers and insolvency practitioners, about these developments."
Also attending the cross-border conference from Ogier are partners Simon Davies and Christopher Jones, counsel Alex Horsbrugh-Porter and associate Michael Rogers from Ogier's Guernsey office, counsel Rachel DeSanges, managing associate Richard Bennett and associates Ross Wilding and Rani Khiani from Ogier's London office.
The conference and reception will be held on Thursday 21 March 2019 at The Law Society, London.
