In December 2008, the Supreme Court of Canada released its reasons in the highly publicized BCE case, affirming that Canadian corporate directors owe their fiduciary duty to the corporation and only the corporation. The decision stands to have a significant impact on merger and acquisition transactions in Canada, and is of fundamental importance to boards of directors as well as to shareholders, creditors and corporate stakeholders generally.  We look forward to an interactive roundtable discussion on the implications of the Supreme Court's decision.
