Ken McEwan, K.C. and Eileen Patel Successful at Defending Leave to Bring a Derivative Action

In Wigen v. Wynndel Logging Co. Ltd., Wynndel Box & Lumber et al, 2018 BCSC 881, Ken McEwan K.C. and Eileen Patel successfully defended the corporate respondents in a claim brought by a minority shareholder claiming oppression and seeking leave to bring a derivative action. The Court concluded that the petitioner could not show that she had or would suffer any peculiar harm, differentiating her from other shareholders, such as to have any basis to assert oppression, and that she had failed to articulate any basis for leave to bring a derivative action in the name of the corporate respondents. In the result, the petition was dismissed.
