Bankruptcy, Insolvency & Restructuring
We know that no one wakes up in the morning looking forward to hiring a lawyer in difficult times. That’s why we strive to be different. In a healthy economy, sound advice on bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring is important, but in uncertain situations, it is critical. For decades, the team at McLennan Ross has helped our clients navigate and weather the ups and downs of the economy with commitment and care. Even if you have nowhere else to turn, we’re here to help with the legal and financial know-how that ensures your interests will be protected.
Our experience finds the best solutions.
Drawing on extensive experience and skill, we tackle the challenges facing our clients quickly and decisively with one of the most experienced and respected teams in the province. Our lawyers are at the forefront of some of the largest and most complex cases in Alberta and often assist other law firms requiring a higher level of restructuring and insolvency skill.
We commonly handle corporate restructuring, reorganizations, and realizations on behalf of secured creditors. For private companies, we can help with restructuring and insolvency and related issues, including assistance with tax structures, tax litigation, mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations, and other financial matters.
We also advise various levels of government, chartered banks and credit unions, private lenders, accounting firms, receivers, monitors, purchasers, and creditors.
