Insolvency, Bankruptcy & Liquidation

The enactment of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (“IBC/ the Code”) was aimed at consolidating the scattered and uncertain process of insolvency and bankruptcy pre-existing in India under several laws viz. RDB Act, 1993; SICA, 1985; SARFAESI Act, 2002, etc. This multiplicity in forums usually resulted in procedural hurdles and ultimate reduction of value for investors.

The Code, in its 4 year existence, has emerged as one of the most impactful legislations for quick resolution of stressed assets in a time bound manner. In the existing crisis of COVID-19, we understand the need for specific, and long-term advisory in the insolvency resolution arena.
