In an increasingly volatile and uncertain business climate, the need for successful debt restructuring has become a recurring issue for financiers, during the second decade of the 21st Century. Protecting the ongoing financial exposure of bankers and financiers, is itself a central theme of the successful restructuring of problem loans and the help that lawyers bring to bankers in structuring and drafting the correct legal documentation for the restructuring process, is therefore a key element of the success of debt restructuring programme.
This course has been designed for legal experts who provide legal advisory services to bankers and other financiers with a specific emphasis on the restructuring of problem loans. During the day’s programme the delegates will review the various different types of restructuring that are currently used in the UK, European and International markets.
The attendees will be separated into project teams and through a series of interactive workshops will apply the theory of debt restructuring covered over the day’s training, to solve case study problems. The programme will culminate in the preparation and presentation of the key legal aspects of a restructured case study. As the course will only last one day the delegates will be required to review and prepare pre course work which will be applied during the course, particularly during the last session.
The course will be delivered by a debt restructuring banking expert and will provide the attendees an overview of problem loan resolution from the prospective of the financier. This will allow the attendees to improve their understanding of the aims of their banking clients in debt restructuring and therefore to improve their ability to properly satisfy their clients’ needs.
