The Regulation of Partnerships and Closely-Held Corporations: Joint Conference of the Partnership, LLP and LLC Law Forum and the Nottingham Law School Centre for Business and Insolvency Law (CBIL)

Nottingham Trent University, 10 January 2019
On Thursday 10 January 2019, the Partnership, LLP and LLC Law Forum and Nottingham Law School’s Centre for Business and Insolvency Law will be holding a joint one day conference exploring developments and areas of debate in the law and practice relating to partnerships and closely-held corporations. We look forward to welcoming you to NTU to discuss highly topical issues around partnership law and insolvency law, such as the UK government’s August 2018 proposals in relation to corporate governance and insolvency (including potentially revolutionary restructuring laws) and the BEIS consultations on whether further regulation of partnerships is needed to counter their use in money laundering and other criminal activities.  By popular demand the conference will also address the complex and often unsatisfactory area of partnership insolvencies.

Venue: Newton Building, City Campus, Nottingham Trent University
Time: 9:30 am - 4.00 pm
