AIRA's November 2012 Los Angeles Seminar will provide a critical update on China's bankruptcy law and restructuring environment with presentations by two experts. Professor Charles D. Booth (Carlsmith Ball Faculty Scholar, Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaii at Manoa & Senior Advisor, SNR Denton) will discuss the development of bankruptcy law in the PRC including China's old insolvency framework, problems with State-owned enterprises, the effect of the 1997 Asian financial crisis, China's reform efforts and administrative solutions. The second part of Professor Booth's presentation will focus on the Promulgation of the New Bankruptcy Law including an overview of the new law, aspirations for the new law, and reasons why the new law underperformed.
Brent Carlson, CIRA (Director, AlixPartners; with nearly 20 years of China business experience in senior management roles) will discuss the changes in the economic and business environment which may thrust China's bankruptcy law to the forefront in the not too distant future. Participants will have two options for participation: onsite attendance at the InterContinental Los Angeles-Century City, or interactive online participation via simultaneous webcast. The program will be moderated by Teri Stratton, CIRA, Managing Director, Restructuring and Recapitalizations, Piper Jaffray
