By combining our strengths in substantive areas of litigation and our experience with the complex procedural aspects of class actions, we bring to bear innovative approaches and considerable resources to address our clients' needs.

We are Canada’s class actions leader. We have acted in class actions for multinational corporations involved in global litigation and many of Canada’s largest institutions and corporations. We have been involved in landmark class actions cases in Canada.
