All of the partners, associates and staff of Lawson Lundell are deeply saddened by the recent passing of our partner, Heather Ferris.
Heather was the leader of our Insolvency & Restructuring Group and a superb lawyer, partner and colleague. Her practice was concentrated on large-scale insolvencies, restructurings and corporate work-outs with a particular focus on real estate insolvencies, and she routinely represented financial institutions, trustees in bankruptcy and receivers. She was a Past Chair of the BC Insolvency Section of the Canadian Bar Association and the former National Chair of the National Insolvency Section. She published numerous papers and articles on insolvency topics.
Heather was tenacious and a fearless defender of her clients, friends and colleagues. We were fortunate to have her on our team.
Her expertise, dedication and friendship will be missed by everyone at Lawson Lundell. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Bruce, her brothers Blake and Craig, and the rest of Heather's extended family.
