Murray K. Morrison practices almost exclusively in the area of personal insolvency, and has done so for the past 28 years. Mr. Morrison firmly believes that all potential bankrupts should speak with counsel prior to speaking with the trustee, in order that they may learn their rights and duties prior to committing the same to paper.
This approach aids the bankrupt in communicating with the trustee and avoids errors in reporting.

The unanimous July 14, 2011 Supreme Court of Canada decision in Schreyer v. Schreyer (2011) SCC 35 is the latest case to show the even more difficult circumstances in which parties to a marital breakdown can find themselves when one of them becomes bankrupt. It also highlights the challenges which arise from the constitutional division of powers in Canada, and hence the differing outcomes which can arise from things such as where the parties reside at the time of their divorce.
