Field Law is committed to helping clients prevent or resolve conflicts in a timely and effective manner, while minimizing expenses and disruptions. Our Debt Recovery and Restructuring Group is experienced and proficient in overseeing and conducting any matter, from the point at which a debt arises and activity and proceedings are commenced right, through to enforcement.

Our clients include banks, other financial institutions, insolvency practitioners, turnaround specialists from the major accountancy firms, suppliers, landlords, as well as creditors and directors of companies in financial difficulty. We also provide advice to directors, creditors, shareholders and professionals in proceedings based on alleged fraudulent transfers, preferences, lenders’ liability, professional malpractice and other matters.

We recognize that good lawyers are not just highly skilled in the courtroom, but are equally adept at keeping clients out of the courtroom. In keeping with this notion, our Group works proactively to manage conflict, helping clients avoid disputes or resolve them before litigation is commenced.

Field Law includes lawyers with a variety of experience in many areas of law. Our key strength is the integration of this Group with the rest of these lawyers and support staff. Our clients benefit not only from our experience with the Canadian Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act, and the Personal Property Security Act, but also from the knowledge of other lawyers at Field Law to develop an overall case strategy to maximize recovery and minimize cost.
