Ken Dekker quoted in Law Times: A Potential National Securities Regulator Raises Concerns

Kenneth Dekker, Affleck Greene McMurtry LLPKen Dekker, Affleck Greene McMurtry LLP, partner at Affleck Greene McMurtry LLP, was quoted in a recent Law Times article: A potential national securities regulator raises concerns; Focus on Argument that current regime works the way it is., published March 12, 2018.

The article explores differing views with the proposed, voluntary new national securities regulatory body. Ken voiced his opinions as he is concerned about reputational damage to Canada for having 13 separate jurisdictions dealing with securities regulation.

Ken commented, “A level of confusion in the regulations that apply across the country is a bit of a make-work project for litigators like me.”

“The real interest has to be in lawyers who are servicing public companies and doing public offerings and trying to meet their disclosure obligations.”
