Insolvency Seminar


This seminar was intended for judges who hear insolvency cases and provided an overview of both substantive and procedural law developments.


The objective of this course was to provide an update on the law of insolvency through interactive sessions.


Developed and led by experienced judges, academics, and senior practitioners, the program delivered practical advice and best practices for conducting insolvency proceedings. Drawing on leaders from the judiciary, academia and practitioners, and using a combination of case studies, interactive questions and debate, the seminar covered a broad range of issues including: Canadian Business Corporations Act debt restructurings and recapitalizations, Ponzi schemes, vesting orders and proprietary interests, third-party litigation funding, limits on debtor-in-possession loan super-priority, and practical session on managing insolvency proceedings.
