Walking the Tightrope: How to Manage Risk Today to Prevent Tomorrow's Class Action

Date

October 1, 2015

Time

8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location

Toronto, Ontario


Overview

Class actions targeting how companies do business are becoming more prevalent. Corporate decision-makers have to be more proactive than ever to identify risks and understand their potential implications at all levels of the business. The cost to proactively mitigate risk, and potentially save the company tomorrow, may conflict with the business goal of increasing profits today. Are you and your stakeholders equipped to walk this tightrope?

Hone your ability to prevent and mitigate the impact of a class action on your business and balance these competing interests by joining other senior in-house counsel, c-suite business leaders and members of Osler's leading class action defence team for the most business solution focused and practical half-day program on class actions available.

Highlights include:

  • Keynote speech from the Honourable Madam Justice Suzanne Côté, who prior to appointment as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada was widely recognized as one of Canada's top litigators in class action defence.
  • Facilitated panel discussion between senior in-house counsel that have guided their organizations through a class action.
  • Breakout sessions facilitated by Osler class action defence experts on preventative risk management, the growing risk of privacy and other data-related class actions, options for defeating or resolving class actions at an early stage, and class action project management.
