The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill: a toolkit for the Covid era and beyond?

The new Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill contains a mixture of temporary measures necessitated by the immediate economic and practical challenges of COVID-19, and longer-term reforms to our restructuring and insolvency regime.

This briefing considers how responsive these temporary reliefs and long-term reforms will be to the challenges of the current crisis, and asks whether further reforms will be necessary to deal with the longer term impacts on business, and to ensure that our restructuring and insolvency regime remains competitive as and when we move out of the coronavirus era.
