Peter Dunne has joined Bennett Jones as a partner in Toronto. He focuses on the Canadian investment industry, serving clients on securities regulatory matters, fund formation and capital raising. His combined experience in securities regulatory matters and fund formation enables him to assist many clients in anticipating and addressing their needs in launching, operating, acquiring or selling a business in the Canadian investment industry.
As a leader in securities regulatory law in Canada, Peter was one of the first lawyers in the country to focus his practice on the regulatory aspects of the investment industry. He acts for registered dealers, advisers and investment fund managers across the country and provides advice to international firms in connection with operating in Canada. Peter assists in the initial registration of firms and individuals under securities legislation, advises on the regulatory implications of operational matters and liaises with securities regulators on behalf of clients.
Through his past directorship and ongoing participation with the Private Capital Markets Association of Canada, Peter is involved in the formation of regulatory policy in this important aspect of the Canadian investment industry. He is a member of Canadian Securities Administrators' implementation committee for the Client-Focused Reforms, which propose sweeping changes to the national regulatory requirements for registrants under Canadian securities legislation.
