LOLG Successfully Upholds Rogers Shareholders Resolution

Back to all news On Friday, November 5, 2021, the BC Supreme Court, in a much anticipated decision, confirmed the validity and enforceability of a shareholders resolution submitted by Mr. Edward Rogers on behalf of the Rogers Control Trust, reconstituting the Board of Rogers Communications Inc.  The decision is significant in confirming the ability of a controlling shareholder to remove and appoint directors by way of a consent resolution without the formality of a shareholder meeting. Jonathan Lisus, Crawford Smith, Matthew Law, Lars Brusven, and Joseph Stonehouse acted for Mr. Rogers, together with Vancouver counsel Ken McEwan, Q.C. and Emily Kirkpatrick. Read the decision here:
