Event poster
This is the second in a series of online events considering the policy response to business distress induced by COVID-19 trading disruption. The series is part of a broader project, COVID-19, public policy and commercial law, funded by the COVID-19 Research Response Fund.

This event will focus on the policy response in the UK, and particularly in England. Three speakers will offer their reflections on the policy response to an anticipated wave of business bankruptcies associated with the COVID-19 crisis, identifying which aspects of the policy response worked well, and which less well, and analysing the ways in which the policy response may permanently alter the commercial law of this jurisdiction.

The event will be chaired by Kristin van Zwieten. The speakers are:

•          Felicity Toube QC, South Square

•          Professor Sarah Paterson, London School of Economics

•          Philip Hertz, Clifford Chance

The event is open to the public, but you must register to be able to attend, and places are limited. Register using this link.

Please note that the event will be recorded and the proceedings made publicly available online afterwards.

A recording of the first event in this series, considering the policy response in Germany, is available here.
