“Payments lawyers disappointed by SCC ruling” by Dale Smith, Law Times

Law Times quotes Ottawa lawyer, Patrick McCann, in an article on SCC ruling.

The decision may also have implications for lawyers who advise corporate clients and financial institutions with white-collar crime issues, says Patrick McCann, counsel with Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Ottawa.

“Although the majority judgment maintains the previous jurisprudence, which favours the corporate victims of employee fraud, the strong dissent favouring financial institutions could become a majority judgment if the issue comes before the court some time in the future,” says McCann.
