In addition, Simm was co-counsel for the Defendants in a noteworthy settlement of a claim where the Plaintiff was seeking, among other things, specific enforcement of stock options and an oppression remedy under the OBCA.

Simm’s cases are cited in 23 textbooks and 2 accredited CPD papers in this area of law.
