Insolvencies and Corporate Transactions

Insolvencies and Corporate Transactions

Pension, benefits and executive compensation issues are front-and- centre in many corporate insolvencies and corporate transactions.

Our lawyers have been lead pension counsel in some of Canada’s most complex and innovative corporate restructurings under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA). Most recently, our lawyers acted as pension and benefits counsel in the highly complex successful restructuring of one of Canada’s largest steel companies.

We also acted for the same steel company in its prior restructuring, and for a major paper industry company in its successful emergence from CCAA.

We provide strategic pension, benefits and executive compensation advice to both sellers and purchasers in corporate M&A transactions of all sizes, including cross-border deals.
