Reading Time 2 minute read


Fasken is once again ranked in IFLR1000’s law firm ranking tables for M&A, and Insolvency & Restructuring in Canada and South Africa

Toronto (Canada) – Fasken is once again ranked in IFLR1000’s law firm ranking tables for M&A, and Insolvency & Restructuring in Canada and South Africa. The publication includes ranking  tables for M&A, Private equity, and Restructuring and Insolvency. 

Fasken’s M&A practice is among Canada’s largest, with more than 130 lawyers, and another 600 available to step in with advice on tax strategies, competition and foreign investment laws, acquisition financing, labour and employment, corporate finance, intellectual property, foreign corrupt practices and government relations. The Firm’s expertise includes advising shareholders, boards, special committees and management in public and private financings, acquisitions and divestitures, proxy contests, take-over defence planning, capital reorganizations and management buy-outs from a variety of industries, including mining, energy, transportation, agribusiness, financial institutions, investment funds, telecommunications and technology.


In the current global economic environment, businesses face intense pressure from overly leveraged balance sheets and reduced cash flow from operations. Some may survive by negotiating financial restructurings with their major stakeholders. Others may need formal insolvency protection to deal with lenders, trade creditors, employees and other stakeholders. Fasken’s Insolvency & Restructuring team

has been ranked nationwide since 2018 by Chambers Canada and Chambers Global enabling it to become one of the largest groups in Canada focusing exclusively on insolvency and restructuring, with highly ranked practitioners sitting in all of Canada’s major centres.
