Learn Something New
Dodd-Frank through the Canadian Lens: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know - January 18, 2012

Introduction of the Dodd-Frank law in the United States last summer is affecting not only Canadian companies listed on U.S. exchanges, but other Canadian companies doing U.S.-related business as well. Corporate counsel should be asking themselves, “What are the different touch points for how the bill can affect my client company?” Among the provisions drawing the most attention are changes in safety regulations for Canadian companies operating mines in the U.S., executive compensation drawback policies, new whistleblower rules that could bypass internal reporting structures, and a disclosure burden on companies for reporting payments they make to non-U.S. governments. Don’t miss this valuable update on the Dodd-Frank roll-out and best practices for managing the new requirements.

Speakers include:

John Keefe – Partner at Goodmans LLP
Lawrence Ritchie – Executive Vice-President and Senior Policy Advisor at The Canadian Securities Transition Office
Karl A. Groskaufmanis – Partner, Securities Enforcement and Regulation at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP
Geoffrey Creighton – Senior VP, General Counsel, Secretary  & CCO at IGM Financial Inc.

This event will take place on Wednesday, January 18, 2012, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST at the Ontario Bar Association Conference Center in Toronto. It will also be offered as a webcast event.

Price: $99.00 for members and $129.00 for non-members.

Accreditation details will be available soon.
