TOPIC: CHANGES TO THE INSOLVENCY LAW IN GUERNSEY: HOW WILL THIS AFFECT YOU?
SPEAKERS: BEN RHODES & JAMIE TOYNTON, GRANT THORNTON
ABOUT THE LECTURE
In January 2020, the States of Guernsey approved changes to Guernsey’s insolvency law, which are anticipated to come in to force shortly. The changes are wide-ranging and include: a requirement for liquidators of insolvent companies to be independent; greater consultation with creditors of insolvent companies; obligations for liquidators and administrators to report misconduct; and, greater powers for liquidators and administrators to obtain information.
Ben Rhodes has been assisting the States of Guernsey with the insolvency law reform since 2015 and now sits on Guernsey’s first Insolvency Rules Committee.
Ben and his colleague Jamie Toynton, both directors of the Grant Thornton Channel Islands Recovery & Reorganisation team, will be discussing the impact of the insolvency law reform and how it will affect you.
