Please join the Capital Markets Institute @ Rotman on Monday, January 22, 2018 for a panel discussion on Livent v. Deloitte: Implications for Auditor Responsibility, Governance and Canadian Public Corporations.

The Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Livent v. Deloitte, released on December 20, 2017, explores questions relating to auditors’ responsibilities in cases where senior executives of a corporation have committed fraud. To whom do auditors owe a duty?  What is the scope of this duty?  What are the implications of the Supreme Court’s holding for governance within Canadian public corporations?  Our panel of experts will review the case, the decision and its implications with prepared remarks, discussion and Q&A.

Speakers include:
Jeremy Fraiberg, Osler LLP              
Janet McFarland, Globe & Mail
Kim Shannon, Sionna Investment Managers & Board Member, CCGG
Alexander Dyck, Capital Markets Institute & Rotman School of Management
Moderator: Anita Anand, Capital Markets Institute & Faculty of Law UofT
