Top Case of 2012

Lexpert Magazine recently proclaimed the Reference Re Securities Act, 2011 SCC 66 to be the "top case" of 2012.  The case reinforced provincial constitutional jurisdiction over trading in securities and rejected a proposed single federal securities regulatory regime.  Brian Foster, Q.C. and Jordan Milne of Rose LLP successfully represented the Attorney General of Alberta before the Supreme Court of Canada, as well as the Alberta and Québec Courts of Appeal.
