Insolvency and Restructuring

Lenczner Slaght is a leading Canadian firm in the area of insolvency and restructuring litigation, with a wealth of collective expertise.   Through more than three decades of courtroom experience we have a unique ability to advance clients' interests in complex commercial reorganizations – and to litigate difficult issues where necessary.

We act not only for creditors and debtors, but also for court-appointed officers such as monitors and receivers. As a result, we offer clients a wide scope of substantial experience in commercial reorganizations and restructurings, personal property security matters, creditors' rights, receiverships, bankruptcies, enforcement in secured transactions and other facets of bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring litigation.

Our lawyers have represented either key stakeholders or court-appointed officers in some of Canada's most challenging and complex restructurings, including CanWest, Calpine, JTI MacDonald, Air Canada, Teleglobe, Hollinger and Stelco, as well as the restructuring of Canada's asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) market.
