- ineffective activity of the judicial and law enforcement system;
- the corruption of Ukrainian society, in particular corruption in the judicial system;
- bureaucracy; inconsistency of existing laws;
- the low professional level of civil servants who are responsible for the formation of state policy and the implementation of reforms and the insufficient level of general awareness of the planned reforms, their goals and objectives.
According to the participants of the in-depth interviews, the main difficulties in reforming the bankruptcy sphere are:
- contradictory interpretation of existing legislative novel, lack of principles of uniform law enforcement practice, untimely coordination of various laws and regulatory documents, long-term amendments to laws and regulatory documents;
- the presence in power of various influential groups that protect their interests during the reform process (especially representatives of the banking sector);
- inefficient work of the judicial system;
- lack of spread of the practice of subsidiary and joint liability;
- insufficient involvement of members of the community of arbitration managers in the development of draft laws.
