Securities Litigation & Enforcement

Securities Litigation and Enforcement

As part of our securities litigation and enforcement practice, we advise corporations and directors and officers in respect of all aspects of securities law litigation including director and officer suitability reviews, listing reviews before stock exchanges in Canada, defence of insider trading and tipping allegations,  stock option granting reviews and investigations originating from the securities commissions and stock exchanges.

We have also advised public corporations in connection with mandatory regulatory compliance reviews, usually tied to use of funds from a public financing, and wrongful disclosures of material information arising from the activities of investment relations consultants.

We regularly write articles on securities litigation and enforcement, including a recent series of articles on social media for public corporations, stock option back-dating issues, and liability for misrepresentations in the secondary market.
