ABI-Live: Anatomy of an Indian Insolvency Proceeding: The ABCs of India's IBC

The following session took place during ABI-Live Webinar in January 2023. India has emerged as a leading insolvency jurisdiction since it enacted its new Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) in late 2016. The IBC heralded a new insolvency process, enabling large corporations to reorganize and maximize value. In the six years since, more than 4000 cases have been filed and scores of important Indian companies have been successfully restructured. In this webinar, an all-star panel of experienced and highly regarded Indian professionals, many of whom have navigated the most important IBC cases to date, will showcase how the Indian insolvency system works, explain the key principles and policies of the IBC, and identify various restructuring alternatives. The panelists also will explore the current macro-economic and business climate in India and debate the successes, failures and lessons learned. Finally, the panelists will discuss potential investment opportunities in India, and why insolvency and restructuring professionals should familiarize themselves with the Indian insolvency process.
