Cartagena de Indias is a delightful resort on Colombia's Caribbean coast, a veritable treasure trove of colonial architecture and 17th-century forts. It has many fine beaches, great restaurants and an entirely walkable historic old town which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Centre in 1984. The venue is Hotel Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara, originally built as a monastery in 1621. The hotel is situated in the heart of Cartagena, where its walls, which acted as a shield in ancient times, combine with colonial balconies and republican structures to evoke the splendor of days gone by.

INSOL International has secured a special rate at the hotel based on availability, rooms are limited, please use the hotel reservation form included in the registration brochure and on our web site at http://www.insol.org/page/254/insol-international-colombia-one-day-seminar

The educational program will cover issues of importance to Colombia and the wider Latin American market, an outline of the educational program follows:


Latin American companies seeking protection in the US under Chapter 11 and Chapter 15

The panel will examine the experience of Latin American companies filing for Chapter 11 in the US and the extra-territorial recognition of those proceedings. Speakers will also address issues arising when Mexican, Argentinean and other foreign representatives seek recognition in the US under the Model Law (Chapter 15).


Out of court restructurings - how does the process differ from country to country?

Experts in restructurings in Mexico, Colombia and Brazil will highlight the differences and similarities of restructurings in each country.


How to trace and recover assets across national borders

Insolvency practitioners are often faced with the challenge of finding assets.  This panel of experts will share their experiences in locating and recovering assets worldwide with particular emphasis on Caribbean and offshore jurisdictions.


Investing in distressed assets in Latin America

The panel will consider the growing role of private equity funds in distressed investing - a look at new opportunities as well as the impact on restructurings.


Recent insolvency developments in the region

Our panel of experts will explore the evolution of insolvency systems in the region - including focusing on some new legislative initiatives.
