McMillan successfully defends Taseko Mines in Oppression Remedy Proceeding  


December 2016

On December 8, 2016, McMillan represented Taseko Mines Limited in its successful defense of an Oppression Remedy Proceeding brought in the course of a proxy contest. The complainant sought damages and other remedies in the multi-millions of dollars. The case was significant in that one of the basic the principles of the Oppression Remedy was affirmed namely that  a complainant shareholder  must demonstrate that the conduct complained of is  unfairly prejudicial or unfairly disregards the interests of the complainant in a unique manner and is not conduct  affecting all shareholders equally.  

The McMillan team included Louis J. Zivot and Bernhard Zinkhofer who received assistance from Charlotte Conlin and Brent Ryan.
