Restructuring & Insolvency: COVID-19 preparedness and support commitment

March 20, 2020

As the impact of COVID-19 is felt around the globe we feel intensely our obligation to address every aspect of our operations with the goal of ensuring that family, friends and clients are safeguarded, and that we fulfill our duties as members of the legal and broader community. This is our first priority.

At the same time, the business challenges and economic uncertainty brought on by the coronavirus outbreak present existential threats to many companies and institutions that must be urgently addressed. There is every reason to believe that coronavirus outbreak will have a dizzying and far-reaching impact on business continuity and solvency. Recognizing this, the Restructuring & Insolvency Group at Miller Thomson is well positioned and strongly committed to responding to the immediate needs of our clients and contacts.

We promise to do our best to provide all relevant tools and assistance. Please note:

  • All Miller Thomson offices across Canada remain open for business at this time. Although employees are strongly encouraged to work from home, we have introduced an extensive set of measures to ensure the smooth and uninterrupted delivery of critical support to our clients and suppliers
  • Across our practice areas Miller Thomson lawyers are addressing the questions and demands of corporate counsel, directors and officers
  • Although courts across Canada have scaled back or suspended operations temporarily, procedures are in place to accommodate significant, urgent and time-sensitive business restructuring issues. We will work with you so that this can be done in or out of court, whenever or wherever required.


Miller Thomson is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure that we provide our clients with appropriate support in this rapidly changing environment. For articles, information updates and firm developments, please visit our COVID-19 Resources page.
