Part Two: What’s New in the World of Securities Litigation?
Please note that this program will be delivered in English.
The COVID-19 pandemic and its related challenges have shaped the development of legal issues and trends in securities litigation, which continue to evolve at a rapid pace. Areas of particular interest in 2020 were contested transactions, regulatory changes and several developments in securities class action law, particularly in Quebec.
Join Blakes national Securities Litigation team as they discuss these trends and developments and their practical implications.
Following the presentation, there will be a 10-minute Q&A session.
This live webcast will cover the following topics:
Top contested transactions of 2020, and predictions and strategic considerations for 2021 and beyond
The strengthening of investor protections proposed by the Canadian Securities Administrators and their impact on the investment industry
