Farris Recognized for Restructuring Deal of the Year by IFLR

Farris was recognized for its role in and contribution to the Restructuring Deal of the Year, as awarded by the International Financial Law Review (IFLR) for the Companies Creditors Arrangement Act restructuring of Angiotech Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“Angiotech”).

Farris was the local counsel for Angiotech, a publicly traded pharmaceutical company located in Vancouver.  Its recapitalization involved a conversion of some $266 million in senior subordinated notes to equity, which enabled Angiotech to emerge from creditor protection on April 6, 2011.

Farris’ team included David E. Gruber, David J. Selley, Rebecca Morse, and Tim Louman-Gardiner.

The 7th Annual International IFLR Americas Awards were held in New York on March 29, 2012.
