Many of Canada’s leading financial institutions rely upon the expertise of Cox & Palmer in this practice area.
Banks, trust companies and term lenders have come to rely on our understanding of their unique priorities and objectives and on our ability to provide practical, decisive advice concerning their day-to-day management decisions. Our practice includes counseling clients on developments in regulatory issues and obligations, environmental liabilities, security evaluation and enforcement. Timing and detail are critical to financial institutions and corporations engaged in structuring loan transactions. When negotiating agreements and preparing documentation, we act with speed and accuracy.
On behalf of lenders or borrowers, we act in disputes arising out of credit transactions. Such disputes may relate to collections, guarantees, security assessment and realization, priority of claims, or the enforcement of rights in bankruptcy and receivership. The breadth of our background in litigation is an asset in negotiating equitable out-of-court settlements and, if necessary, effectively representing our clients at trial.
Corporate restructuring, workouts, receiverships, realizations and foreclosures involve a great number of detailed issues. Through close familiarity with relevant legislation, we can act on behalf of creditor or debtor. As well, our strong working relationships with other key professionals in the field permits a swift, comprehensive and practical approach to every case.
