Round Table 'MSE Debtors and Creditors in Trouble: is a Simplified Insolvency Regime the Solution?'

UNCITRAL Working Group V (Insolvency law) is currently working on a simplified insolvency regime developing mechanisms and solutions to address the insolvency of individual entrepreneurs and micro and small businesses of an essentially individual or family nature with intermingled business and personal debts.

As part of the round table ‘MSE debtors and creditors in trouble: is a simplified insolvency regime the solution?’, speakers will share their views on the relevance of the proposed solutions to overcoming the consequences of the pandemic, summarize the practice of States struggling with mass bankruptcies after COVID-19, evaluate the effectiveness of the measures taken, and propose best practices of combating bankruptcies for unification.

The event will be of interest to academia, experts from legal practice, international organizations, and State authorities.

The discussion will be held in Russian and English (with simultaneous interpretation).




Legal Run 2021

A full-fledged athletic event that has become customary for the Forum participants, the Legal Run cannot take place in the traditional format this year due to the ongoing pandemic and the associated restrictions on mass public events.

However, to maintain the custom cherished by many, May 22, the last day of the St. Petersburg International Legal Forum, will be marked by a planet-wide flashmob of individual runs in different cities and countries.

Since such a format does not suggest erecting a stage, renting athletic equipment or incurring any other costs associated with organizing runs, the recommended partnership donation for law firms and companies will be kept to a minimum: 15,000 roubles in Moscow, 10,000 roubles in St. Petersburg and 5,000 roubles in other Russian cities.

We kindly ask you to transfer your donations to the Gift of Life Charitable Foundation under the Legal Run target donation agreement. Traditionally, the project organizers will release information about the total amount raised and the foundation charges whose treatment costs have been covered on June 1, Children's Day in Russia.

Jointly with the Legal Run organizers, we will offer media support to all of the project's partners by covering the event across our communication channels.
