Field Law has experience in all areas of bankruptcy and insolvency law, creditor-debtor rights, and banking litigation. We represent institutional lenders, receivers and bankruptcy trustees, secured and unsecured creditors, lessees of real and personal property, debtors, and individuals and businesses involved in all types of litigation related to bankruptcy, insolvency and commercial reorganizations.
Few areas of law cover a range of issues and services as wide as insolvency law. Insolvency law touches all business areas, and all manner of problems and solutions.
At Field Law, we have the breadth of experience to handle any task involving insolvency issues, no matter how big or small they may be. Field Law lawyers have acted for debtors, creditors, Court appointed officials, assets purchasers, directors, guarantors, shareholders and other investors and employees affected by insolvency proceedings.
Our lawyers have acted to assist companies in financial distress in Court supervised restructurings under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, proposals under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act and informal work outs with creditors. We have also helped numerous other stakeholders deal with companies going through such processes.
We have assisted:
- Creditors in recovering their secured and unsecured claims through debt enforcement proceedings, receivership actions, bankruptcies and repayment negotiations
- Court appointed officials in carrying out their obligations in a manner which is fair and equitable for all stakeholders
- Potential buyers in navigating Court supervised sales processes and ensuring that their acquisitions are protected under Court Order, and
- Creditors and receivers investigate and remedy fraud matters.
