17:00 Challenges from the North – Ignore at your Peril Facing Cybersecurity, Investment Canada and Competition Challenges Head-On
Canada’s privacy, antitrust and foreign investment laws and practices are similar to those in the USA. There are several key distinctions and developments, which USA businesses and their legal counsel are often unaware of. Ignorance of these areas can lead to serious consequences, including sanctions and fines against companies, directors, officers and employees, as well as serious reputational harm. In other cases, lack of insight may also lead to lost business opportunities, such as in pricing and distribution practices or in cybersecurity safeguards. Our panel presentation will highlight some of the key legal challenges and offer practical guidance for dealing with these Canadian issues using real life examples.
