The number of bankruptcies in Russia will grow. Strengthen the number of bankruptcies can instability in the financial market and a new round of sanctions policy, but also socio-political factors such as cheap mortgages and even fighting corruption. The explosive growth in mortgage lending can result in numerous personal bankruptcies: if last year there were about 40,000 bankruptcies, then this year more than 60,000 are expected. Criminal prosecution of "white-collar workers" will also increase the number of bankruptcies.
Despite the numerous legislative initiatives in the field of bankruptcy, the desire to tighten the responsibility for criminal bankruptcies, to strengthen the personal responsibility of business owners and top managers, the state has not yet determined the strategy. What is more important - sanation or liquidation of the debtor? Whom to defend first of all - the debtor or the creditor? How justified are special rules for banks that are both debtors and creditors? Should the state have priority in recovering from a citizen a criminal fine, leaving behind private creditors? What is the risk of a chain reaction, when the insolvency of one debtor is dragged to the bottom of its counterparties, or when a citizen who has not been freed from debt will fall into bankruptcy again and again. The experience of law firms dealing with bankruptcy practice can help answer these questions. The scope of services to support bankruptcy procedures is constantly growing, and with it the qualifications of lawyers who provide these services. Business breakfast will bring together leading practitioners in this field.
