A new “Forum Selection By-law” was recently adopted and passed at the annual general meeting of a major public company in Canada.

On May 14, 2015, Walied Soliman and Orestes Pasparakis, co-chairs of Norton Rose Fulbright’s Special Situations Team, will be joined by Cathy Singer and Ruth Wahl, Senior Partners at Norton Rose Fulbright, to discuss this exciting new development in corporate governance and what it means for your company, your shareholdings and the Canadian market.

Overview of topics to be discussed:

  • What the Forum Selection By-law does and how it protects companies
  • The legal support for its implementation
  • Whether this new by-law is appropriate for your company
  • Market reaction: What to expect from shareholders and proxy advisory firms
