International Insolvency & Restructuring Symposium & Cross-Border Insolvency Program

November 17-19 | Online

Join us for a three-day international event bringing together, once again, ABI’s International Insolvency & Restructuring Symposium partners — American College of Bankruptcy, International Insolvency Institute (III), TMA Europe, INSOL and IWIRC — and ABI’s annual Cross-Border Insolvency Program.

Presented on ABI's innovative platform, sessions will include the annual "America Now" update with U.S. bankruptcy judges from key jurisdictions, a "Far East" update and a session on what to expect in 2022, all without crossing time zones.

If you’ve never been able to experience the international program, which moves around Europe to great places like London, Paris, Berlin and Rome, or if you’re looking for the latest in cross-border insolvency updates, you can find it all here — along with light-hearted networking opportunities.

“See” you in November!
