Partner and former Practice Coordinator of the Pensions and Benefits Group. Andrew advises employees, retirees, pension plan administrators, and unions on all aspects of pensions, benefits, and employee compensation, with an expertise in corporate restructurings and bankruptcy. He acted as representative counsel for employees and retirees of many high-profile insolvencies: Sears Canada, Stelco, Hollinger, Domgroup, Eaton’s, Dylex, Saan Stores, Foodora, and more. He represented clients in the insolvency proceedings of Indalex, Smurfit-Stone, Hard Rock Paving, General Chemical, Vicwest, and the restructurings of Catalyst Paper, Stelco, Ivaco, Slater Steel, and Algoma Steel. He was lead counsel to retirees in the landmark Indalex case before the Supreme Court of Canada that held that the PBA deemed trust applies to an underfunded pension plan in a CCAA and that the company breached its fiduciary duty to pension plan members. He was successful counsel at the Supreme Court in TCT Logistics, which held that collective agreements remain in force in insolvency proceedings and that a bankruptcy court cannot premptively shield trustees and receivers from proceedings brought by unions. Andrew presents at legal seminars and teaches a class at McGill University on pension law and investments.
