Jeannie Kim will be a speaker at the 25th IAKL (International Association of Korean Lawyers) Annual Conference, Silver Jubilee: Past, Present and Future. Ms. Kim will be speaking on the panel titled, “New Kid on the Block.”
“New Kid on the Block” Panel:
In March 2017, Korea established its first bankruptcy court, which has sole jurisdiction over insolvency and rehabilitation cases. The panelists will discuss the creation of the Korean bankruptcy court system and provide a comparative review of bankruptcy courts and insolvency practices in various jurisdictions spanning from Asia (Japan, China, and Singapore) to the United States and Europe (France and UK). The interactive program will also focus on Korea’s approach to special procedures such as pre-packaged plans and stalking horse deals and examine the role and discretion of bankruptcy courts, cross-border insolvency and restructuring cases, and compromises reached among various stakeholders in insolvency proceedings.
