What it Means to be a Securities Lawyer in Vancouver

Do you know the difference between a prospectus and the PPSA? Do you wonder what the M in M&A stands for? Did you learn everything you know about being a solicitor in Crim class? Are you unsure of what to ask when a business lawyer says “Do you have any questions for us?” in an OCI? If you relate to any of these questions – you’re not alone! Securities law is a big part of the practice of law in Vancouver but unless you choose to take an upper year course on the subject, you may never learn what it really involves. Come listen to Steve McKoen and Susan Tomaine talk about their securities law practices at Blakes. The information they impart will be relevant for any downtown firm and any other major market in North America. If you have ever been curious about this fast-paced area of corporate law, come get the straight goods on what it means to be a securities lawyer in Vancouver. Lunch will be provided to registrants.
