Taylor Veinotte Sullivan's enviable reputation as one of the most sought-after litigation firms in Vancouver is built largely on the depth of its securities litigation practice.
The Firm's uncompromising approach on behalf of clients is perhaps best represented by the precedent-setting case, Anderson v. British Columbia Securities Commission, which TVS won at the BC appellate court and which continues to serve as the benchmark for what constitutes fraud of the BC Securities Act.
Representing clients at all levels of the BC court system, the TVS team also regularly appears before bodies and agencies responsible for regulating the financial sector in the province including the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC), IIROC, the Institute of Chartered Accountants, the Insurance Council, the Real Estate Council and the Financial Institutions Commission.
TVS provides legal advice, trial and hearing counsel in the following areas:
- Regulatory matters – representing professionals, brokerage firms, brokers or other individuals who are targets of regulatory investigations as well as those who require strategic advice to curtail their exposure to risk when called to testify during a regulatory investigation.
- Civil matters – addressing breach of fiduciary duty, breach of trust and other tort claims, as well as lawsuits alleging theft and fraud against parties who caused financial loss, loss of economic opportunity and other harm.
- Criminal securities matters – responding to accusations of wrongdoing made in a criminal court, including insider trading, fraud allegations, sanction and repeated breach of regulatory orders.
