New Brazilian Bankruptcy Law

Event & Webinar

January 28, 2021

A Webinar Presented by Dechert's Financial Restructuring Team Brazil recently made material amendments to its insolvency laws that will shortly go into effect. The amendments dramatically change the relative leverage between debtors and creditors in a recuperacao judicial (the Brazilian court-supervised judicial reorganization law). Among other things, under the amendments, Brazil adopted the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, which allows creditors to file plans of reorganization under certain circumstances, and makes it easier for debtors to get debtor-in-possession financing. Such changes will impact both debtors’ and creditors’ strategies for both future and pending RJ proceedings. Dechert’s financial restructuring team will host a panel of leading insolvency lawyers and restructuring advisors in Brazil to discuss the implications of the amendments on public, private and global markets. Details and Timing Thursday, January 28, 2021 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. EST 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. BRT 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. GMT   Contact Nikki Bazemore with queries.

Points of discussion will include: • Issues in-house legal teams are confronting and how their practices and needs have changed in the post-COVID-19 environment. • Strategies companies are utilizing to plan ahead for a post-pandemic period. • Tips for retained counsel to better support and partner with in-house colleagues during these continued uncertain times. Panel 2 - The Future of Jury Trials Few aspects of the law were impacted more dramatically by the coronavirus pandemic than jury trials. In 2020, companies, attorneys and judges were forced to rethink every aspect of the trial process and navigate how to conduct trials that were fair for all parties and safe for everyone involved. A panel of prominent trial lawyers from around the country will discuss how companies can best anticipate and prepare for jury trials going forward and what long-term impacts on jury trials may result from this COVID-19 pandemic. Points of discussion will include: • Predictions for how courts and litigants will handle in-person and remote jury trials in 2021 and as court systems begin to re-open throughout the country. • Lessons learned from in-person hearings, mock jury exercises, and jury trials conducted during the pandemic. • The pandemic’s effect on juror attitudes and decision-making.
