Insolvency and Creditors Rights

Sometimes things don't go according to plan. When that happens, both creditor and debtor have rights and mechanisms available to resolve the relationships between them. But it can be a minefield, and they need lawyers who know what they're doing to lead them through that minefield. Whether proposing an arrangement under the Companies Creditors' Arrangements Act (CCAA), or enforcing a creditor's claim for oppression against a resisting corporate debtor, our lawyers have the experience (and the patience) to get the job done for our clients.

Barry S. Wortzman, Q.C., has been a top litigator for more than thirty years. Barry not only knows his way around the rights of creditors and debtors, but has also long since mastered the fine art of knowing when to go for the throat, and when to counsel co-operation and patience.

Helder M. Travassos, acts for creditors and debtors, and teaches Insolvency Law at the Law Society of Upper Canada's Bar Admission Course.

Thomas McRae acts for creditors, debtors and trustees-in-bankruptcy, in matters before the courts and on arbitrations.
