On February 8, 2021, the Congress of the Republic of Guatemala approved the Insolvencies Law. Such Law will imply material and important changes to the legal framework applicable to insolvency and bankruptcy procedures, which will be oriented to benefit the reorganization and continuation of business for debtors that are facing insolvency, so they may comply with their credit obligations without endangering the creditors rights.
