June 30, 2010 - CALGARY, AB - Meyers Norris Penny LLP (MNP) has acquired certain regions of the Personal Insolvency practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) effective July 1, 2010. The regions of the Personal Insolvency practice consist of 54 professionals and support staff located throughout 11 offices in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
“MNP is very excited about this acquisition. Not only will we be strengthening our personal insolvency practice by gaining additional expertise and resources in existing locations, we are adding new Ontario locations and entering the Quebec market for the first time,” said Daryl Ritchie, MNP’s Chief Executive Officer. “From a business perspective this is no doubt an exciting opportunity, but our top priority at the moment is to work closely with PwC to ensure that the transition is smooth for all clients and team members involved,” explains Ritchie.

“The sale of certain regions of the Personal Insolvency practice is consistent with PwC’s long-term strategy in those markets, which focuses on Corporate Advisory and Restructuring service offerings. We believe this decision is in the best long-term interests of our personal insolvency clients and the staff servicing them,” says Kristian Knibutat, PwC’s National Deals Leader.
“MNP’s Insolvency practice, Meyers Norris Penny (MNP) Limited, has been helping individuals and businesses across Canada resolve their financial problems for more than 40 years,” says Ritchie. “This is a practice area our team excels in and we are a very excited about providing our expertise to more people and more markets.” In addition to delivering Consumer Insolvency services in consumer proposals and personal bankruptcy, MNP provides a full range of Corporate Recovery services.
