Lou Brzezinski on the Sears CCAA

Lou Brzezinski on the Sears CCAA

On June 22nd, Sears Canada Inc. and its affiliated companies obtained insolvency protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA). Sears Canada has locations across Canada that it intends to close as part of its restructuring efforts. Blaneys insolvency partner Lou Brzezinski, along with his associate Alexandra Teodorescu, are assembling a creditor's committee for those with a stake in Sears Canada's ongoing restructuring and liquidation proceedings. Lou and Alexandra achieved significant success for suppliers during the Target Canada CCAA as a result of Target creditors joining together and collectively retaining Blaney McMurtry LLP, and are poised and ready to do the same in light of the Sears Canada restructuring.
