Insolvency & Restructuring

Boughton Law’s Insolvency & Restructuring Practice Group advises creditors, debtors and insolvency professionals on the full spectrum of insolvency matters, regardless of complexity or location.

Areas of Expertise

Financial institutions like some of Canada’s largest banks and credit unions as well as private lenders call upon us to ensure that their debtors repay outstanding debts as quickly as possible. Whether these matters are related to foreclosures, receiverships or realizations, we have been proud to successfully guide our clients through the enforcement of their security and the intricacies of priorities between competing creditors.

Whenever your business is experiencing financial challenges, you can rely on us for legal advice on regaining solvency. Regardless of the necessity of a bankruptcy filing or the involvement of public or private debt, our focus is to protect your business from aggressive creditors through the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act or Companies’ ¬†Creditors Arrangement Act (the CCAA) while providing counsel on your financial restructuring and reorganization.

Insolvency professionals, including receivers, bankruptcy trustees and monitors appointed under the CCAA, seek our advice on all related matters and we frequently appear in court on their behalf.
