E Bruce Leonard 1944–2017

Bruce Leonard, a founding chair and director of the International Insolvency Institute (III), editor of GTDT Restructuring and Insolvency for many years, and an active member of Global Restructuring Review’s editorial board, was a leading light in the world of Canadian and cross-border insolvency law, well-known both in his home town of Toronto and internationally through his numerous leadership roles in professional groups, particularly the III – a non-profit, by-invitation association of cross-border insolvency lawyers, academics, practitioners and judges from around the world, which he founded in 2000.

As a private practice lawyer Bruce Leonard worked on some of the industry’s most recognisable cases, including the liquidation of Nortel Networks and as lead agent to the Canadian government in the restructurings of US car manufacturers General Motors and Chrysler. He also advised the Canadian government on bankruptcy policy and reform, lobbying for the adoption of the UNCITRAL Model Law in Canada and the US, and acted as an adviser to the World Bank.
