Restructuring, bankruptcy and insolvency

In Canada, most of the rules governing insolvency can be found in two important federal laws, the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act and the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act. We have resources in litigation and taxation specializing in liquidating and restructuring certain types of companies and can help you buy a distressed business or arrange financing to avoid bankruptcy.

Our acknowledged skills in this field are often requested by companies in financial distress. We’ll develop a restructuring strategy with you, take care of the negotiations with your creditors and draft the required agreements. We’re highly adaptable: we’ll be responsive to your expectations and respectful toward your business culture. In every way, we’ll be more than your attorneys; we’ll be real partners who share your vision and long-term objectives.
