Canadian governments and regulatory bodies are facing heightened pressure to enforce criminal and regulatory laws. Among these laws is Canada’s Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act (Canada’s equivalent of the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the U.K. Bribery Act 2010), Bill C-13 (the new crime of insider trading and tipping in Canadian capital markets) and Bill C-45 (Canada’s criminal workplace negligence legislation). Criminal and regulatory investigations and charges can have a severe impact upon companies, their executives, employees and shareholder value. Companies of all types must keep a vigilant eye on both detecting these criminal and regulatory issues and effectively responding to investigations.
Topics to be addressed:
- Recent trends in corporate criminal and regulatory law
- Advising the Board on risks, rights and responsibilities regarding corporate criminal and regulatory law
- Responding to and managing investigations, search warrants and charges
