Lang Michener InBrief Summer 2009


LAW NOTES deals with divergent topics – from directors’ duties to trade fixture wars. It discusses export controls, consumer protection legislation, income fund conversions, unionized worker grievances, and the consequences of having a manager who is too “hands on.”

The lead article discusses the most significant changes in twenty years to the Competition Act and how they were barely noticed. Indeed, change is a recurring theme among the articles – change to how a lawsuit is conducted, new assessment requirements for corporate leaders, changes in consumption taxes and changes in corporate disclosure requirements. Michael Rankin joins in to consider the business implications of not having a privacy interest in one’s refuse. Commercial tenancies are also discussed, and there are articles on employment issues such as blogging and work reassignments. Howard Levitt highlights how some businesses are riding the recession wave, and Stephen Maddex helps highlight Canadian opportunities in the U.S. stimulus package, and what to know about litigating in the U.S. And there’s an article on how one might become bullish with the tax-free savings account (“TFSA”).

In Brief Life Bites, interesting connections and quirky stories about virtuosity, virtuality and reality; then your Letters and Comments, and at the end, catch our Orient links.
