Sean MacNeil Principal Halifax +1 902 421 1734

As a Principal in Grant Thornton’s Atlantic Canada Recovery and Reorganization (R&R) practice, I focus on helping businesses  overcome their financial difficulties.

Specifically, I work with businesses to help them identify and evaluate their restructuring options and then develop a comprehensive restructuring plan that allows them to move forward the best they can. I advise clients across a wide range of industries, including retail, manufacturing, real estate, forestry, fishing, oil and gas, and agriculture. In addition to advising debtor companies, I also advise and act on behalf of creditors, including chartered banks and other lenders in debt recovery situations.

Prior to joining Grant Thornton, I worked with a national firm out West and had the opportunity to work on some of Western Canada’s largest insolvency files. In this role, I spent 15 years advising corporate clients and their stakeholders in both informal workouts and formal insolvency proceedings under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act and Companies Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA).

In addition to being a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada and the Canadian Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals, I’m also a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT) federally regulated by the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy.

Outside of the office, my time these days is mostly spent trying to keep up with my two young daughters, , I try to get out biking and skiing whenever the opportunity arises.
