The Centre for Business Law and Insolvency recently saw three of its members attend a conference hosted by the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development in London at the Bank's headquarters at One Exchange Square. The conference, held on 7 November 2014, was held to launch the EBRD's report titled "An Assessment of Insolvency Office Holders", a project on which the Bank has worked for two years. The report reviews the status, qualification and training of insolvency practitioners and outlines the framework for their registration, supervision and discipline, providing indications of cross-jurisdictional trends in the countries forming part of the EBRD's client group.

Professor David Burdette, Dr Alexandra Kastrinou and Professor Paul Omar were part of the invitation-only gathering that witnessed the formal launch of the report and the presentations that followed on insolvency office holder frameworks in a number of emerging economies and developed states alike. In addition, Professor Paul Omar was invited to chair a panel session on "Insolvency Office Holders, Creditors and the Court: A Triangle of Powers". The panel, which grouped together representatives of the judiciary and practice in Bulgaria, Hungary and Latvia, presented views on the role of the courts in the supervision of insolvency cases and in adjudicating between stakeholders involved in the process.
