News Jul 28, 2017

McMillan is pleased to announce that Restructuring Group Partner Tushara Weerasooriya has been selected as one of the winners of the Commercial Finance Association (CFA) 2017 40 Under 40 Awards. Tushara won in the category of Legal Services. 

The 40 Under 40 Awards program honours the achievements of young commercial finance professionals and service providers from across the industry – the movers and shakers who exemplify true excellence in their careers.

Tushara regularly provides advice to banks, financial institutions, private equity and hedge funds on a wide range of restructuring and financing matters, including recently acting as lead counsel for a U.K. private equity firm in a complex and successful distressed acquisition of mining assets in northern Ontario and for a major Canadian financial institution in the recovery of a $100 million swap claim from a foreign bank liquidation.

Tushara has earned a reputation as an excellent practitioner known for taking a client-first approach and crafting timely, creative and practical solutions for her clients. Tushara brings to every file her characteristic intelligence, dedication, integrity and charm. In 2012, Tushara was recognized by Chambers Global as a leading lawyer in the area of restructuring.

Tushara will be presented with her award at the CFA’s New York gala presentation in September.

Congratulations Tushara on a fine achievement.
