We are at the forefront in defending class actions and have one of the largest and most experienced class action defence teams, especially in Canada. Our lawyers and our practice are considered top-notch by leading legal publications.
We have represented clients over a wide array of industries with such companies as Archer Daniels Midland, Bell Canada International, BMO Nesbitt Burns, Canadian National Railway Company, Continental Airlines, Dow Chemical, GlaxoSmithKline, Imperial Tobacco Limited, Hudson's Bay Company, Merck Frosst Canada, Nortel Networks, Pfizer, Royal Bank of Canada, Scotia Capital, Bank of Nova Scotia, Abbott Laboratories, Eli Lilly, Sharp Corporation, and Mattel.
We offer clients complete solutions, whether circumstances call for a negotiated settlement early in the proceeding or a vigorous defence through to trial. In Canada, because our team includes experienced counsel in multiple jurisdictions, we offer clients a national approach to defending multi-provincial class actions. We develop a national strategy that accommodates the substantive and procedural differences between provinces and offers clients greater efficiency and cost savings. Our “one team” approach extends to cross-border litigation as well. We have acted on numerous cross-border class actions working closely with internal and external US defence counsel in formulating and pursuing a coordinated global defence strategy.
Our clients benefit from our multidisciplinary approach to defending class actions. We draw upon the expertise of our firm’s other practice groups, such as members of our banking, competition, corporate finance, corporate legal services, employment, intellectual property and pensions teams.
Our litigators have successfully defended class actions throughout Canada. The breadth of our experience covers competition, employment, environmental, pension, product liability, professional liability, and corporate finance and securities.
