Professor David Burdette, Director of the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School, was invited to take part in a panel recently at the Commercial Finance Association's tenth annual International Lending Conference in London on 12 May 2016. The Commercial Finance Association is the international association for professionals in the lending, factoring and asset-financing industry. It recruits members from the banking sector, asset-management companies, investment and finance entities, and specialist lenders. The event, attended by over 100 delegates, covered topics including economic prognostics, the regulatory environment in the finance sector, asset-based lending issues and international trade financing.

Attention at the conference also focused on insolvency, particularly cross-border workouts and the relationship between secured lending and insolvency. Professor Burdette's contribution was to a panel on the latter topic, which reviewed changes having an impact on secured lending across the globe. Professor Burdette was able to share with the audience some of his experience as Senior Consultant with the World Bank, in which capacity he has been called upon to review law reform proposals in emerging countries, including in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, that deal with both insolvency and asset security.

The Centre for Business and Insolvency Law, which has gained a reputation worldwide for the promotion of research and teaching in insolvency, sees it as part of its mission to reach out to professionals and policy-makers active in the insolvency and business communities. This demonstrates the breadth and depth of the Centre's commitment to fostering critical thinking on insolvency and business themes.
