Financial Restructuring & Insolvency

When a company is in distress, senior leaders need to move quickly. We help map out the right strategic course, finding a creative path that preserves and distributes value.

In almost every major restructuring in Canada, stakeholders across industries – and borders – turn to our team to achieve optimum results. Whether you’re a creditor, debtor, shareholder, investor, monitor, trustee or receiver, we help you navigate all the challenges and complexities of a restructuring or insolvency.

Our team takes a holistic approach, drawing on the strategic and deal-making skills of lawyers across practices, from mergers and acquisitions to finance, tax and litigation. This allows us, time and again, to find creative solutions and negotiate the best results.

Our perspective is global and our reach multijurisdictional. We work regularly with insolvency practitioners and courts internationally, particularly in the U.S. and the U.K. And we explore all means – including interim financing, M&A alternatives and, when necessary, the courts – to protect your interests and help you reach your goals on your timetable.
