We are pleased to invite you to the 14th in our series of webinars covering the business challenges presented by the Covid-19 outbreak.

Pressure points: Next Phase of State aid: Deeper bailouts and recapitalisations will look at what we are beginning, and expect, to see next in terms of bailouts of specific businesses and industries which governments consider to be of strategic importance.

Amongst other things, we shall discuss:

  • what the options are for such a next phase of State-backed recapitalisations, including taking equity;
  • practical considerations for companies as recipients of financial support or competitors/complainants, including the EU's most recent Covid-19 State aid guidelines; and
  • recent bailout proposals for high profile companies in a number of major European jurisdictions.

This webinar will be chaired by James Palmer, Chair and Senior Partner of Herbert Smith Freehills, who will be joined by experts from Herbert Smith Freehills who will share their experience from past downturns and the current crisis.

Updated insight is available online at our Catalyst online hub and from your usual contacts.
