Securities Fraud and the Use of Micro-Cap Stocks

This post was written prior to December 2022, when Hakemi & Ridgedale LLP joined MLT Aikins.

Leah Shepherd of Hakemi & Ridgedale LLP, together with Michael Pesunti of the BC Securities Commission, were acknowledged by the Law Society of BC for their assistance with preparing a recent risk advisory on the risk to the public stemming from the use of micro-cap stocks.
