Seminar: Defending An SFC Investigation (November 18, 2016)
In the past few years, the Securities and Futures Commission ("SFC") has earned a reputation as an innovative and aggressive regulator, pursuing enforcement action against regulated entities, listed companies and their directors and other market participants alike.
Please join us for this lunch time seminar as a distinguished panel of practitioners discusses how to handle SFC enforcement action, from the receipt of an investigation notice through to prosecution.

Francis Comtois, Partner
Mr. Loh and Mr. Comtois have extensive experience handling SFC investigations and other enforcement action. Their recent experience includes:
