COVID-19 has lead to an increase in corporate failures and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. South Africa will therefore need skilled business rescue practitioners to meet the demand for these services.
The pandemic is having a dramatic effect on the economic circumstances in South Africa, leading to a number of corporates being liquidated or placed under business rescue. Liquidation signals the end of the company’s life, and with it the jobs of employees. Business rescue, on the other hand gives a company a second chance. This course is a summary of business rescue – a roadmap to business rescue law. It includes case law and the commercial and transactional (including M&A) aspects thereof.
Join us for an eight-hour course, held over four days.
