Our Annual Review of What’s Important and What’s Trending in Securities Litigation
The Cassels Securities Litigation team is pleased to present our sixth annual Canadian Securities Litigation Outlook, in which we provide our analyses of key securities litigation developments over the past year and our thoughts on the topics and issues that we expect to see trending in the year to come.
This year, we examine six securities litigation-related topics including the enhanced focus on environmental, social, and governance initiatives by all market participants; regulatory updates arising out of British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario; regulation of market manipulation; key developments in cryptocurrency regulation and enforcement; disclosure obligations in the era of COVID-19; and securities class actions developments.
- Enhanced Focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Initiatives by All Market Participants
- Securities Class Actions Trends
- Regulating Market Manipulation – Challenges and Change
- Disclosure Obligations in the COVID-19 Era
- Key Developments in Cryptocurrency Regulation and Enforcement
- Securities Regulation Updates and the Impact of COVID-19 in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta
As part of this year’s launch, we hosted an online discussion with Wendy Berman, Vice-Chair of the Ontario Securities Commission, on “Environmental, Social and Governance Regulatory Issues in Securities Litigation.” Click here to view a recording.
We will continue to monitor and report on these and other developments and trends as they unfold.
Please contact any member of the Cassels Securities Litigation team to discuss these developments and trends, and their impacts on market participants.
