Provided by Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP
Paliare Roland's specialized Class Action group is experienced both in prosecuting and defending class proceedings.
The Class Action group is a team of talented lawyers and support staff. Acting as class counsel on some cases, and as defence counsel on others give the Class Action group unique strategic insight in a practice area where most firms typically represent only one side or the other.
Paliare Roland’s expertise and problem-solving on class actions is consistently recognized by members of the class action bar.
In appropriate cases, we act as co-counsel, working with other law firms both in Ontario and from other jurisdictions on complex class proceedings.
In cases where we do not act for the parties, our firm has been retained by counsel to assist on particular issues as they arise. In separate cases, we have represented both defence counsel and class counsel.
We are also regularly retained to provide critical insolvency advice on class actions.
