Linc acts as a lead advisor to key stakeholders in some of Canada's most complex domestic and cross-border restructurings, distressed acquisitions and distressed financings.
Linc gained insights into cross-border mandates as a key member of the Blakes U.S. initiative team, having relocated to the United States from 2004 to 2007 to assist in establishing our U.S. presence. Upon his return to Toronto, Linc developed a leading restructuring practice with a particular focus on cross-border matters. In addition to acting for a broad cross section of domestic clients, Linc is routinely retained by foreign based lenders, corporations and private equity and hedge funds to provide strategic and legal advice for some of their most complicated multi-jurisdictional mandates.
Linc is also a leading contributor to continuing legal education. He has published extensively in scholarly journals and trade publications for almost two decades and, by invitation, now sits on the Editorial Advisory Board of the Annual Review of Insolvency Law, Canada’s leading insolvency law publication. In addition to speaking extensively on a variety of insolvency law topics, many of his speaking engagements address diversity issues in the legal profession. Linc has been recognized for his pioneering accomplishments in this area.
