Corporate clients and individuals often turn to JSS Barristers to navigate the complex regulatory and governance landscape. We possess decades of experience in achieving successful outcomes when on both plaintiff- and defendant-sides in securities litigation matters in the form of class actions, securities commission investigations and negligence claims.
Our lawyers have represented shareholders in multi-jurisdictional actions in relation to the wrongful representation of business operations through financial documents and other disclosures, resulting in losses upon the correction of those statements. Examples of our work in this area include:
- Representing a class of shareholders against Poseidon Concepts Corp (settled in 2018);
- Representing a class of shareholders against Ithaca Energy Ltd.
We have appeared before all levels of court in Alberta and other provinces. We have also represented clients before the Alberta Securities Commission (ASC), as well as other provincial securities commissions and the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Our team has also defended public corporations, and their directors and officers, against claims alleging fraud, violations of disclosure obligations and corporate misconduct.
In addition to our extensive litigation experience, the securities litigation team includes lawyers who have worked extensively in securities enforcement and investigations. Leveraging our unique blend of experience and knowledge, our aim is to provide clients with creative solutions to achieve the best outcome.
