Canadian securities and corporate lawyers, in-house corporate counsel, regulators and compliance officers tend to learn US regulatory requirements piecemeal, on an "as needed" basis. But, as the volume of cross-border activity increases and the level of US enforcement increases, it's more important than ever to have a complete understanding of how the US system works.

This Osgoode Professional Development program provides a comprehensive and in-depth overview of US securities law. It was designed for professionals who are looking to expand and update their knowledge on US securities law and regulation, while also providing newer practitioners with the necessary overview to understand this demanding regulatory environment.

Highly experienced practitioners from both the US and Canada will deliver practical information and explore key issues in US securities law, including:

  • Comparison of Canadian and US securities regulation
  • Recent changes to SEC rules
  • Impact of US securities law and regulation on Canadian intermediaries
  • US securities litigation, enforcement and class actions
  • Practical issues related to Canadian offerings
  • Exemptions from Registration of Interest
  • Complying with US domestic Tender Offer Rules
  • Regulation of M&As
  • Exemptions and registration options under the MJDS
  • Foreign investor reporting requirements

This is a rare opportunity to learn from top US practitioners and have your questions answered by those who practice US securities law every day, while benefiting from Canadian practitioners' perspectives on what is most important for you to know. You will come away with a thorough understanding, enabling you to confidently and competently handle and advise your US colleagues, clients and adversaries.
