On May 10, 2018, Farris partners Ludmila Herbst, Q.C., and Teresa Tomchak spoke on a panel addressing hot topics in cross-border and other regulatory, criminal and civil investigations. The panel was part of the Benchmark Women in Litigation conference held in Vancouver. The panellists and an engaged audience discussed when and why to consider launching an internal investigation, when external investigations may be commenced, the intersection between the two categories of investigations, and best practices for each. Teresa has extensive experience in securities litigation and regulation, and Ludmila practises in the areas of commercial litigation and regulatory law; both drew on their knowledge and experience to flag and discuss key issues for companies contemplating or faced with investigations.
Farris was also proud to be among the sponsors for this important day-long event.
