Corporate Recovery & Insolvency in Canada

Every now and then, our attorneys are asked to provide commentary for publications. Recently, Lisa S. Corne, a partner in our Toronto office, was asked to write a chapter for the International Comparative Legal Guide to: Corporate Recovery and Insolvency 2012. Her chapter, co-authored with David P. Preger, focused on answering questions about bankruptcy and insolvency issues in Canada.

The chapter provides answers to bankruptcy and insolvency questions, including: how does a creditor take security over assets in Canada? What are the tests for insolvency in Canada? Are unsecured creditors free to enforce their rights in each procedure? The goal is to give companies comprehensive information about filing for bankruptcy and insolvency in Canada.

Lisa is a commercial insolvency lawyer, with extensive experience litigating complex, sophisticated matters and particular expertise in restructuring and insolvency law, including security enforcement, receivership, bankruptcy and court supervised restructuring processes. She is the author of numerous papers and articles on insolvency and bankruptcy law, including publications in the Commercial Insolvency Reporter, Insolvency News, and National Insolvency Review.
