Dealing with a Restructuring Practitioner

The restructuring process allows eligible companies to retain control of the business, property, and affairs of the company while it develops a plan to restructure the company’s affairs with the assistance of a restructuring practitioner. It also allows the company to enter into a restructuring plan with creditors.

Anna and Nicholas will provide an overview of how to handle queries from a restructuring practitioner, actions you should take and other considerations to this process.

The presentation will cover:

  • What are the eligible criteria for restructuring?
  • Who is an effected creditor?
  • Who is an excluded Creditor?
  • What is an admissible debt or claim?
  • Who can act as a restructuring practitioner?
  • What is the roll of the restructuring practitioner?
