It is with great sadness that we advise of the loss of our dear friend and partner,
Michael MacNaughton, on November 10, 2012 from ALS.
Michael, one of Canada’s top insolvency practitioners, co-headed BLG’s national
Insolvency and Restructuring group and was repeatedly recognized as a leading
lawyer in numerous international publications including Best Lawyers in Canada ®,
Chambers Global, PLC Which Lawyer, Lexpert ® and IFLR 1000.
Michael was a wonderful leader and an exceptional partner who excelled in
advising lenders, creditors, debtors and insolvency professionals in a wide variety
of complex bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring matters.
More importantly, Michael was a gentle and kind man whose down-to-earth
sensibilities, hearty laugh and humility earned him the respect of all those around
him. His passions included the practice of law, the pursuit of golf, friends, his
many colleagues in the insolvency community and especially his family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael’s family during this very difficult time.
