Agenda

General Counsel are more important than ever in history.  Boards of Directors look increasingly to them to enhance financial and business strategy, compliance, and integrity of corporate operations. In recognition of the achievements of our distinguished Guest of Honor and his colleagues, we are presenting Simon Fish and the Legal Department of Bank of Montreal with the leading global honor for General Counsel and Law Departments.  Bank of Montreal was founded 200 years ago as Canada’s first bank.  Since then, it has played a critical role in Canada’s growth, financial systems and prosperity.  His address will focus on key issues facing the General Counsel as the transformational leader of an international banking corporation.  The panelists’ additional topics include M&A; cross-border capital markets; international banking regulation; governance; lawyering; and diversity. The transcript of this event will be made available worldwide in electronic copy.

*This program may be eligible for up to two hours being added toward the Law Society’s CPD Requirement as Substantive Hours.  Please note that this program is not accredited for Professionalism Hours.
