Insolvency & Corporate Restructuring

We provide legal advice to debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, trustees and receivers in the context of proceedings under the “Bankruptcy & Insolvency Act” (BIA) and the “Companies Creditors Arrangement Act” (CCAA). Over the course of the last several years, we have guided lenders, suppliers and landlords through numerous significant CCAA proceedings.

The lawyers in our Insolvency & Corporate Restructuring Practice regularly appear in Commercial Court in Toronto and are frequently involved in litigation and other proceedings under the BIA and related provincial legislation, for the recovery of assets and setting aside of fraudulent transactions. We have proven our ability to recover assets even in the most difficult of circumstances.
