The Canadian and U.S. economies are interdependent, with $1 billion
a day in goods, services and investments crossing the border. Both
economies are in a state of flux. Many industries, including steel,
airline, automotive and telecommunications, are being completely
restructured on both sides of the border. An understanding of the
insolvency issues in cross-border cases is essential in order to protect
your clients’ financial interests. This program will draw together
leading insolvency lawyers, insolvency practitioners, bankers,
turnaround managers and judges from both Canada and the United States to
discuss current issues in insolvency law.
