Thursday, 07 November 2019, Painters' Hall, London

We are hosting our first ever Women in Restructuring conference, which is being held in association with IWIRC London (International Women in Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation). The event will bring together lawyers, insolvency practitioners, restructuring and turnaround advisers, banks, investors, consultants, judges, and many other stakeholders from the international insolvency and restructuring circuit.  Through attending, you will be provided with an excellent opportunity to connect with and learn from like-minded individuals during the conference sessions and the networking breaks. 

We will be releasing a new edition of our Women in Restructuring survey at the event and in order to maximise networking opportunities on the day, we will be closing with a drink’s reception followed by an all-conference dinner, where everyone can come together to celebrate the achievements of women over the past few years.
