Retail and Fashion
The change experienced in the retail industry in recent times has been transformational. The challenges facing traditional bricks and mortar retailers are constantly evolving – from the growth of e-commerce, shifting landlord dynamics, changing demographics and new US entrants – retailers require advisors with hands-on expertise in the sector.
Our team has deep experience in the retail sector spanning several decades, having led many of Canada’s largest and highest-profile retail restructuring matters. We have performed mandates for distressed retailers, their boards of directors as well as their stakeholders – landlords, suppliers and employees. Examples include advising the Board of Directors of Sears Canada, acting as court officer in the restructuring proceedings of Eddie Bauer, Danier Leather, Lucky Brand, Mendocino Linens N Things and countless others. The depth of KSV’s experience extends as far back as the restructuring proceedings of Eatons and Dylex, which were led by KSV’s team of professionals.
