Peter Knox QC and Richard Samuel attending 'Piercing the Corporate Veil' Conference in Rome

24 October 2013

Peter Knox QC and Richard Samuel from 3 Hare Court are speaking at the International Association of Young Lawyers (aija) Conference; Piercing the Corporate Veil; a practical approach, which is taking place in Rome on 25-26 October. The conference will discuss whether the principle of limited liability for a business is in fact fair, following the high levels of business failures due to current economic conditions, and the resultant issue of recovering debts. The sessions aim to balance the different interests at stake including those of management, shareholders, creditors and debtors and take a look at how other jurisdictions approach creditor claims differently.
