Episode 16 – Insolvency Reform: Spotting and Mitigating Future Risk in Supply Relationships

With insolvency alone no longer valid grounds for severing most commercial contracts in the UK, how can suppliers and customers spot early warning signs of counterparty distress and head off future risk? This podcast is the second in a series of three considering the impact of the UK’s new Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act, as well as existing insolvency-related regimes in the UK and the US on commercial contracts.

In this episode of Connected With Latham, Andrew Moyle, Data and Technology Transactions partner, talks with London partner Christian McDermott, Washington D.C. associate Morgan Brubaker, and London associate Kristy Watkins about the practical application of the UK and US insolvency regimes with respect to commercial agreements and the ways in which you can protect key contractual arrangements in the event of financial distress.
