SYNOPSIS: 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. 

SESSION HOST: Capital Markets Institute at Rotman
