Orrick - London

The French economy is struggling and consequently France has been the most active market in Europe for financial restructurings over the past two years. French insolvency laws have been evolving since the introduction of the ‘sauvegarde’ procedure in 2005 and the market for distressed debt and market practice has matured over the past 10 years.

Please join our panel of experts, who will discuss their recent French restructuring experience and their views on market developments following the recent insolvency reforms which came into effect in July 2014. 

Chaired by European Restructuring co-head Stephen Phillips, the Panel will be:

  • Frederic Abitbol - one of France’s leading judicial administrators 
  • Arnaud Joubert - Partner, Rothschild   
  • Laurent Guyonnet - Managing Director, Societe Generale 
  • Saam Golshani - Partner, Orrick Rambaud Martel, Co-Head of European Restructuring
