As the extent of the financial fall-out from the COVID-19 crisis begins to take shape, the government has introduced a new package of measures to assist companies to stabilise their business and generate financial resources as they seek to restructure their organisation free from creditor pressure.

During this webinar, we examine the current state of the market and the measures introduced by the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill from a legal, restructuring and lending perspective to empower pro-manchester members with the knowledge and tools to create breathing space and ease cashflow difficulties.
