Bankruptcy Trustees Burnaby - Our law company's Insolvency and Restructuring Group has received national and international recognition for its skill as a leading insolvency, bankruptcy, restructuring and workout practice. The team of Insolvency and Restructuring members are leaders in the field with several years of restructuring experience.
We have a national full service firm full of Insolvency and Restructuring professionals practiced in M&A, IP and IT, securities, litigations, labour and employment, tax, financial services, competition, pensions, and real estate. We have great knowledge in restructuring situations and can exceed and meet our clients' expectations.
Our clients come from many industries including businesses in steel, retail telecommunications, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, real estate, manufacturing, oil and gas, media, investment funds, insurance, forestry, energy, automotive, financial services, agriculture and airlines.
So as to successfully protect and represent the interests of our clients in all parts of the country, our experts can combine the various professionals all around the country with local knowledge.
Insolvency and Restructuring Group members act for clients before appellate and superior courts in insolvency, restructuring and bankruptcy proceedings. Though it is preferable to arrive at consensual resolution of complex problems, this is not always possible and our Insolvency and Restructuring members are well prepared to represent clients' rights and interests before the courts. Our members have decades of skill in matters like contested bankruptcy, sales process hearings, realization, receivership and liquidation procedures; classification hearings; sale approval motions; priority matters; and plan approval and sanction motions. We even have litigation knowledge in fraudulent conveyance, preference, undervalue, oppression, alter ego, subordination, reviewable transaction, and more.
Our goal is preserving and maximizing value for institutional lenders, major international financial institutions, asset-based lenders, senior lenders, private equity, mezzanine lenders, distressed investors, turnaround companies, bondholders, indenture trustees, court officers, and protection funds. We serve clients involved in financial restructuring, such as boards of directors and special committees and others, in matters ranging from out-of-court restructurings, loan amendments, intercreditor arrangements, asset and business acquisitions and sales, plans of arrangement, pre-packaged plans, balance sheet restructuring and operational restructuring through formal proceedings.
Our advice and services consist of the following:
There are various probable variations, in distressed financing situations. It is critical for all parties to have a clear understanding of the interests, rights, probable tactics and strategy to achieve a successful result. Our Insolvency and Restructuring Group works closely together with members of our Financial Services Group, acting for lenders in and out of court, financing arrangements, financial restructuring, debtor-in-possession, forbearance accommodations and arrangements, and exit financing.
Our Insolvency and Restructuring Group works closely with our Mergers and Acquisitions Group in addition to other specialty groups. We offer services in the sale or acquisition of assets or business in distressed cases. Our clients comprise board of directors, sellers, buyers, special committees, institutional investors, lenders providing acquisition financing, interested stakeholders and buyout funds.
We have advised in respect of strategic debt acquisitions, plan-sponsor arrangements, fulcrum security issues and rights and value maximizing techniques including the assessment of other counterparty risks and arrangements and the assignment or rejection of executory and other contracts. In addition, we have acted for arrangement, sales processes, cross-border sales processes involving the combined use of the courts authorized sales procedures with Bankruptcy Codes sales, stalking-horse bidding processes (after or without a pre-filing sales process) consisting of suitable auction sales and bidding protections or more conventional style sales processes.
We also help in providing individualized services concerning both union and non-union situations in conjunction with our Labour and Employment Group.
