Expert-Level Experience In Pension Wind-Up And Insolvency Matters

Boutique pension and benefits law firm Canadian Benefits Law offers its clients decades of experience with pension wind-ups and insolvencies. David has worked in several of the largest and highest profile pension insolvencies in Canada. He worked on some of these major projects during his time spent practising corporate and pension and benefits law at major Canadian law firms Fasken Martineau, Torys LLP, and Ogilvy Renault LLP and its successor Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP.

David's experience and background in both corporate and pension law has given him a unique advantage in advising on the restructuring of pension plans during the insolvency process. He has also acted as legal counsel to the Ontario government in significant claims involving Ontario's Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund (PBGF). The PBGF, which is unique to the Province of Ontario, is a form of insurance protection for pension plan members' pension benefits when their employer becomes insolvent. It is Canada's closest comparable arrangement to the U.S. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
