The subject under discussion will be:

CVAs  -  Explained, Illustrated and Debated.

The CVA (Company Voluntary Arrangement) process has been enshrined in UK law since the 1986 Insolvency Act came into being; it has been widely used to assist the rescue and recovery of distressed companies. Some of these companies have been high-profile organisations - including high street retailers and famous football clubs - and a CVA can be effective for companies of all sizes and descriptions, from industrial PLC’s to professional ‘LLP’ practices.

It is the aim of this seminar to explain and illustrate this important and effective mechanism so that advisers to SME companies are better equipped to recognise where, when and how a CVA might be applied when an organisation which is in, or nearing, financial trouble.

To assist in this process there will be two key presentations which will include case studies from both the legal and practical point of view; attendees are encouraged to enter into the subsequent debate.

The speakers will be:
