W. A. Derry Millar
4/14/2009
10:15 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
The TSX Broadcast Center, The Exchange Tower (Street Level) 130 King Street West, Toronto ON

In-house counsel are increasingly expected, not just to help, but to ensure that their companies do the right thing. This program will help you think about the challenges this obligation presents and how you can be prepared.

You'll be engaged by this dynamic, interactive program. We first watch the classic scenario unfold in a well scripted and acted video production: corporate counsel gets caught in an ethical dilemma not of her making. You will then hear from leading in-house counsel as they discuss how they would have reacted if placed in the same situation.

Panelists:

Simon Fish, EVP and General Counsel, BMO Financial Group
Derry Millar, Partner, WeirFoulds LLP and current Treasurer of the LSUC
Georgia Sievwright, SVP and General Counsel, Hewlett Packard (Canada)

Facilitator:

James (Jim) Merklinger, Associate General Counsel, Association of Corporate Counsel (Washington, DC)
