Corona measure: Government modernizes bankruptcy law to save businesses

Background

On April 28, the Norwegian Parliament approved a temporary law for company reorganization aimed at saving Norwegian otherwise healthy businesses that struggle with poor profitability and illiquidity following the corona crises.

The existing bankruptcy code forces companies to close down their operations, potentially harming the recovery of the Norwegian economy from the crises.

The Webinar will discuss key features of a well-functioning bankruptcy law and review how the current bankruptcy law and the new restructuring law measure up again these principles.
