November 5, 2015
Dickinson Wright LLP, Canada’s leading full-service business law firm specializing in cross-border counsel, is pleased to announce that Lawyers Michael Weinczok and Kathy Le recently wrote a chapter for the book, Financing Company Group Restructurings, published by the Oxford University Press.

Mr. Weinczok and Ms. Le contributed the chapter on Canada to Financing Company Group Restructurings, which provides the first comprehensive treatment of out-of-court restructuring and post-commencement insolvency financing in the corporate group setting, domestically and internationally. Bringing together a collection of distinguished contributors – academics and practitioners at the forefront of insolvency practice and law reform efforts – the book addresses and critiques “state of the art” practice and work-arounds for financing out-of-court restructurings as well as judicial reorganizations, going-concern liquidations and administration proceedings of financially distressed global business groups. The book is designed to assist those practitioners who must structure (and courts that must approve) financing for global enterprise groups in reorganization.
