Haynes and Boone's Bankruptcy, Restructuring and Insolvency Section is hosting a seminar entitled Going South: Issues in Cross-Border Insolvency and Restructuring between the U.S. and Mexico.

International creditors and investors face significant challenges in Mexico when dealing with distressed assets and insolvencies. Enforcement action in Mexico is not the same as it is in the United States. Further complications arise when insolvency proceedings are commenced.

Our panel of professionals, experienced in working with cross-border and Mexican companies, will discuss what might be bueno in Mexico but not so chili-red-hot in the United States, including:

  • The Ins and Outs of U.S. and Mexican Enforcement and Insolvency Proceedings
  • The Vice of Vice Versa: Cross Border Recognition Procedures

The Impact The Vitro Decisions Will Have On How International Companies and Financial Institutions Do Business With Mexican Companies
