As government support measures start to end and creditors resume collections, many lawyers will find themselves dealing with clients seeking bankruptcy or restructuring advice. Do you have a basic understanding of insolvency laws to answer the questions “what are my options?” and “how will my decision impact me or my business in the future?” This 90 minute primer led by noted bankruptcy and insolvency lawyer Lou Brzezinski and his colleague Natasha Rambaran will address the fundamentals of Canadian insolvency laws as they presently stand, how the relationships between creditors and debtors have changed during the pandemic, and new and different approaches to work out debt issues. By the end of the program you will:
