A Closer Look at the Dutch WHOA and the English RP: New Takes on Flexible Restructuring

May 5, 2022

Sponsored by ABI & INSOL

It has been more than a year since the new Dutch Act on court-sanctioning of private composition to avoid bankruptcy, the so-called WHOA or Dutch Scheme, entered into force. The new Dutch Scheme has received a lot of attention in the (international) market because it offers a flexible restructuring tool in the Netherlands, a jurisdiction that plays an important role in many international restructurings. Notably, the Dutch Scheme introduced debtor-in-possession proceedings, which aim to achieve debt-restructurings outside of formal Dutch bankruptcy processes. Join this panel of experts as they take a look at the Dutch Scheme and the similarities it has to U.S. chapter 11 and English scheme processes, and whether these similarities can also be seen in practice.
