Podcast Summary

The webinar is intended to serve as an introduction to the new insolvency provisions expected to come into effect in Greece as of the beginning of 2021.  The Code is styled Code for Debt Settlement and Second Chance.

 This bill is no less than a revolution for Greece. It introduces a unified code for restructuring and bankruptcy of individual and corporate debt for the first time in the country's history. It implements directly the recent EU Directive on restructuring and insolvency (1023/2019) ahead of all other member states. As such, the new Code should also help Greece better participate in the EU banking and markets union.
