About Us / About Stephen Boale
Licensed Insolvency Trustee
Prior to joining Derek L. Chase & Associates Ltd. in 2019, I was a founding partner of a boutique insolvency firm in Vancouver. Earlier, I spent ten years practicing exclusively in insolvency matters with a big four chartered accountancy firm. I have also been employed as an Official Receiver with the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy.
These varied insolvency experiences have provided me with an in depth knowledge of the insolvency system in Canada. I have extensive experience with a variety of different types of insolvency filings. I enjoy working with individuals facing financial difficulty and have completed many successful consumer proposals including debtors with large tax debts.
I have also worked for secured lenders performing viability assessments, monitoring engagements and administering formal receiverships and agency appointments and have worked with corporate debtors in financial difficulty.
I have volunteered as a former President and Director of the British Columbia Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals and am currently on the board of the Sechelt Fish Hatchery Society
When not working, you will likely find me on the water as I love to fish.
