He represents debtor companies, creditors, and purchasers of distressed assets. Jeremy's experience in strategic and operational business roles in a capital constrained environment allows him to deliver highly practical and creative approaches to solving clients' challenges.

He was formerly a member of the firm’s private company group, where he advised on mergers and acquisitions and general corporate commercial matters. This included asset and share transactions, private equity and venture capital investments as well as negotiating and drafting agreements.

  • The principal investor in a $780 million purchase of a hotel chain across Canada

Between his roles in the firm’s Restructuring and Private Company groups, Jeremy joined a US-based healthcare services start-up as a member of the executive team. His mandate included both general counsel and business growth strategy and execution responsibilities. During his tenure the company raised over $10 million and grew revenues from less than $1m to over $4m per year. The company was named to the Inc. 500, list of fastest growing companies in America as #211, #3 in Massachusetts and #1 in Healthcare in Massachusetts.

Jeremy joined the firm as a summer student in 2011. He graduated from Western University’s J.D. program, where he was named to the Dean’s Honour List.
