We* know complex insolvency litigation. We know it, because we have litigated those cases over and over again, in Canada and across border. Through more than three decades of courtroom experience, we apply our unique judgment and perspective to advance our clients' interests in complex commercial reorganization, and to litigate difficult issues to achieve the best outcome. We know how to reorganize§ businesses, big or small, using strategic litigation. Whether it’s acting for Court-appointed officers or for creditors caught up in the process, we bring our experience as litigators and problem-solvers to the table to achieve the best results. We offer clients a wide scope of substantial experience in commercial reorganizations and restructurings, receiverships, bankruptcies, personal property security matters, creditors' rights, enforcement in secured transactions, claims process litigation and related proceedings, within and outside restructuring proceedings. Nowhere is judgment and courtroom credibility more critical than in those cases being conducted in real-time, and where recovery is limited. It’s because of our experience, judgment and unique vantage point that clients have retained us to act in some of Canada's most challenging and complex restructurings. We’ve negotiated resolutions to complex issues, and fought cases all the way to the Supreme Court. Regardless of scope, Lenczner Slaght is structured to serve your restructuring and insolvency needs..
