security enforcement  


Bankruptcies and restructurings are a fact of business life and timely strategic action is often critical to a successful outcome. Having the right advisory team in place early in the process can help enhance a creditor's recovery.

When a formal proceeding commences, even a first registered secured creditor may be surprised to discover that the security it holds ranks junior to certain claims of employees, pensioners and taxing authorities. Even more disconcerting, secured creditors often face obstacles that prevent or delay the enforcement of contractual and statutory rights and remedies.

McMillan's Restructuring and Insolvency Group has earned a reputation for helping clients enforce the full range of available rights and remedies including aggressively protecting the rights and interests of secured creditors in formal insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings, and actively engaging in negotiations to maximize recoveries.

We are able to draw on McMillan's deep experience in banking, corporate finance, financial services, tax and litigation to deliver a comprehensive approach to the most challenging of circumstances.
