Differences in Canadian and U.S. insolvency law can pose challenges for parties involved in cross-border proceedings or those trying to identify distressed opportunities in Canada. In this webinar, members of the Blakes national Restructuring & Insolvency team will discuss recent trends and developments that U.S. restructuring advisors and distressed investors should be aware of.


  • Increase in cross-border recognition proceedings (Purdue, Revlon, Voyager and others)
  • Directors' and officers' liability, third-party releases and litigation funding
  • Update on reverse vesting orders (RVOs)

After the presentation, there will be a 10-minute Q&A session.
