Banking & Finance

Having represented both lenders and borrowers, we provide strategic and business-oriented advice to Canadian and international clients on a wide range of financing transactions from equipment leasing to complex debt restructurings.

Corporate & Commercial

We advise on all aspects of a company’s operations in a practical and solution-oriented way. From starting a new business, ensuring compliance with corporate governance, conducting strategic planning, acquiring or selling all or part of a business, to carrying out complex corporate reorganizations, we can be there to guide you every step of the way.

Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation

Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) came into effect July 1, 2014. It is in place to protect Canadians while ensuring that businesses can continue to compete in the global marketplace. If your company uses electronic communications to promote or market your organization, products or services, Canada's anti-spam law will likely affect you. We are experienced in navigating and ensuring that our clients maintain compliance with this relatively new and complex area of law.

Enforcement of Creditor Rights

We have a wealth of experience advising and assisting creditors with the enforcement of their loans. From informal workouts with borrowers to formal proceedings such as court-appointed receiverships, foreclosures and lawsuits on promissory notes and guarantees, we aim to maximize recovery and minimize losses for our Canadian and international clients.

Privacy & Data Protection

We advise and support private sector organizations in complying with their obligations under both federal and provincial privacy laws. With experience assisting our clients in developing privacy policies and personal information handling practices to meet strategic business needs and to ensure compliance with privacy legislation, we are well placed to assist you in this evolving area of law.

Restructuring, Insolvency & Bankruptcy

Our practice covers the entire range of restructuring, insolvency and bankruptcy. We have a wealth of experience acting for creditors, debtors, court-appointed officers, trustees in bankruptcy, and acquirors of assets of insolvent companies in both Canadian and international jurisdictions. We have played significant roles in major Canadian restructurings under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) and have particular expertise in cross-border matters including restructurings and insolvency proceedings in the U.S. and Europe.
