Breakfast Briefing: Restructuring in the Oil&Gas sector, 19 May 2015

In the context of the recent decrease in oil prices which is causing turbulent times for the oil & gas sector, our team of lawyers at bpv Grigorescu Stefanica is organising a Breakfast Briefing focused on “Restructuring in the Oil & Gas Sector” on 19 May 2015.

The event addresses the stringent need of the sector to rethink strategies and take measures for ensuring business sustainability over the short and medium term, and examines the following topics from a practical perspective:

  • Restructuring: compulsory procedures, implications, unwanted consequences of failure to comply; measures imposed by reduction of activity leading to suspension of individual labour contracts and collective labour contracts; elimination of job positions – avoiding employees’ dismissals and potential litigations;
  • Transfers: company transfers, outsourcing of activities – do’s and don’ts;
  • Labour disputes and dispute resolution: protecting the company in disputes with laid-off employees – strategy, deadlines, evidence, recommendations; settlement agreement in labour litigations – advantages and disadvantages, how to settle based on the litigation phase;
  • Insolvency: the impact of the insolvency procedure on oil and gas regulatory aspects; the effects of insolvency on commercial relationships and litigations.

Speakers:
Cristina Randjak, Managing Associate, Employment and Benefits
Adina Tataru, Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution
Cezara Constantinescu, Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution, Insolvency
Andreea Carare, Associate, Energy, Natural Resources and Environment
Discussions will be led by Anca Grigorescu, LL.M.Eur, Partner, Head of Employment and Benefits.

Venue: bpv Grigorescu Stefanica headquarters
Start time:  08:30
End time:   11:00
The presentations will be held in Romanian.

The event is free of charge.

The briefing is dedicated to senior in-house legal, HR and financial professionals of oil & gas companies and the number of participants will be limited to allow extensive Q&A interaction between the speakers and the participants.
