What is OCC
The Occ of the Milan Bar Association was established in accordance with Law 3/2012 and has been registered since 1 April 2016 under no. 34 of the Register of Legal Entities held at the Ministry of Justice.
By setting up the OCC, the Bar Association intends to address the serious social problem of those who find themselves in a state of insolvency but are unable either to go bankrupt or to avail themselves of other insolvency procedures to defer their debts and partially write them off, with the agreement of their creditors.
The over-indebtedness procedure is open to customers in financial difficulty, smaller businesses (who are therefore not eligible for bankruptcy) and others with even potentially significant debts, such as agricultural businesses, start-ups, the self-employed and non-profit organisations.
The activities relating to the procedures provided for by law (agreement to resolve a crisis of over-indebtedness, consumer plan and liquidation of assets and dismissal of the debtor who is unable to pay) are carried out by professionals (for the Bar's Body, these are lawyers) known as "crisis managers" who are registered in the appropriate List kept by the Ministry of Justice.
