In Wells v. Bioniche Life Sciences Inc., a group of dissident shareholders attempted to gain control of Bioniche Life Sciences Inc. (the “Company”) by requisitioning a shareholders’ meeting to replace the Company’s management. Bioniche’s Board of Directors resisted the Dissidents, and the parties eventually came before Justice D. M. Brown of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to have him determine several issues relating to a shareholder’s right to requisition or call meetings under s. 143 of the Canadian Business Corporations Act.  An article summarizing Justice’s Brown’s findings and analyzing the practical implications of the decision was recently published in the Commercial Litigation and Arbitration Review by Rahool Agarwal, an associate at Norton Rose Fulbright and a member of its Special Situations Team.  A copy of the article can be accessed here.
