Jeff Leon Comments on the OSC's Record on Crime
November 28, 2007
Jeff Leon, a partner in the firm's Toronto office, is quoted in "Lawyer defends OSC's record on crime," an article written by Madhavi Acharya-Tom Yew for the Toronto Star and in "Former SEC chief decries 'deification of debt,'" written by Peter Brieger for the National Post. Both articles explore the misconception that US regulators are better than their Canadian counterparts at rooting out and punishing stock-market crime. Leon asserts that, "too many people look at Canada and compare it to the United States," and there are fundamental differences between the two systems that need to be recognized and respected.
