The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has bought a wave of distress to companies across the globe. 2021 will see the end of government support packages for businesses who have initially acted quickly to remain liquid for the foreseeable future, and there now remains a high level of uncertainty as to the speed at which recovery may happen, and what issues companies are facing in an uncertain environment in order to stay solvent.

Our global restructuring and corporate teams, are producing a series of podcasts looking at the considerations directors need to apply in each jurisdiction in a distressed situation.
