A proven record of success

Defending a class action doesn’t need to be costly, distracting to your business or damaging to your reputation. Our class action lawyers have defended the highest-risk cases in the country and achieved outstanding results. We’ve had tremendous success in defeating certification, obtaining summary dismissal of claims and — when preferred by our clients — expeditiously settling cases on very favourable terms.

A collaborative approach

In partnership with you, we develop our defence strategy based on a careful and strategic assessment of your business objectives, the facts and the defences available to you. We ensure that you understand the key issues in the lawsuit, and the risks and opportunities associated with different defence strategies. Whether through aggressive litigation or skilled negotiation, you’ll receive the best defence, the best service and the best outcome.

Seamless, Canada-wide support

With top-tier class action lawyers in every key class action jurisdiction in Canada, we offer seamless cross-country co-ordination of multi-provincial matters. We also work seamlessly with lawyers in other countries — including our Gowling WLG colleagues in offices in the U.K., Europe, Asia and the Middle East — to ensure that strategies are integrated and duplication is avoided.
