I am happy to be patient as my questions seem to be more complex than others sometimes. Ideally the right lawyer would be a US lawyer familiar with SEC, (Security Exchange Commission) regulations.
I think the answer must come form a lawyer familiar with the US SEC as the governing laws cover companies world wide who trade on the various US exchanges and are governed by SEC regulations. But the company I am involved with legally has Canadian and US offices. I think the best source for an answer would be a US lawyer.
Thank you for the link and I have only this follow up..."who is responsible for providing the report of assessment of potential liability" ...It may be described in more detail in the link......Thank you
