AIJA Seminar Bilbao 28-30 September 2017

From 28 until and including 30 September 2017 the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA) organized a seminar in Bilbao, aptly titled “Navigating Through Troubled Waters; Current Trends in International Maritime and Energy Insolvencies”. Young lawyers from all over the globe attended the seminar. And with so many insolvencies and restructuring proceedings in the maritime and offshore industry these last years (for example O.W. Bunker, Hanjin and very recently Seadrill), the subject matter caused lively discussions amongst the speakers and the participants, both on maritime law matters and insolvency trends. During the seminar, Jennifer Hoovers of our firm spoke about the recent developments regarding the Dutch pre-pack and the consequences thereof for Dutch insolvencies and restructuring possibilities.
