Who's Who Legal Restructuring & Insolvency: Lawyers

DJ Miller is a partner in the insolvency and restructuring firm Thornton Grout Finnigan LLP and has represented a wide variety of stakeholders in complex restructurings and insolvency litigation for the past 25 years. She was named Insolvency Litigator of the Year (2016) by Benchmark Canada, received the 2017 Women of Excellence – Exemplar Award from the Turnaround Management Association and a Lexpert Zenith Award in June 2017.

She is known for her deep knowledge of the insolvency framework, both domestic and international, and for applying analytical and strategic skills to achieve successful outcomes for her clients.

Representative mandates include acting as lead Canadian insolvency counsel to the UK pension claimants in the Nortel Networks case, and successfully arguing for the precedent-setting pro rata allocation of US$7.3 billion of sale proceeds among more than 40 insolvency estates in Canada, the US and Europe following the first joint trial involving the Canadian and US courts. DJ also obtained the first pre-filing stay of proceedings under Canada’s main insolvency statute (CCAA), in a 2017 cross-border case. She has extensive experience on the deal side of restructurings as well as insolvency litigation, and has appeared before every level of court in Canada.

DJ is a member or executive of various industry organisations including the Insolvency Institute of Canada, chair of the board of directors of the Toronto chapter of the Turnaround Management Association and chair of the chapter presidents’ council of TMA Global. DJ is recognised as a leading lawyer in both insolvency litigation and financial restructuring by The Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, Chambers Canada and Who’s Who Legal.

WWL says: DJ Miller is a market-leading expert on insolvency and financial litigation and receives high accolades for her leading practice and her ability to get results.
