The 2012 Lavery Discussion Event on the Distribution of financial products and services was a success. Almost 65 people gathered in the Lavery Conference Centre on October 10 to take part in this seminar, which was focused on recent developments and trends with regards to investigations, inspections and remedies. More specifically, the Lavery speakers discussed important concerns related to the growing application of the legislation and power to act of the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), including the scope of AMF powers, the role of registered firms and persons and the expectations of the AMF in that regard as well as the best practices and related recommendations. This Discussion Event involved the participation of Ms. Lise Girard, chief prosecutor at the Autorité des marchés financiers.
