Class Actions

BD&P’s Class Actions Team of litigators has considerable experience in all aspects of Canadian and U.S. class actions, representing clients in a broad range of commercial class action subject matter. 

Class action litigation is often tactically complex, requiring seasoned strategic decision making with which BD&P is experienced. Our clients benefit from our strength and depth in the substantive areas of litigation and our ability to navigate the procedural complexities unique to class action litigation. We use a multi-disciplinary approach as required, drawing upon the skills and experience of the firm’s other practitioners   including members of our banking, commercial transactions, employment, energy, intellectual property, securities and tax groups.

We guide clients expertly through the process whether circumstances call for an early negotiated settlement or a trial of the issues.

Different from most ordinary litigation in its ability to generate negative publicity, erode customer and shareholder confidence, diminish reputation, divert massive blocks of time for management and creating significant potential liability for a business, class action suits demand immediate and efficient action by experienced counsel.

Class action litigation is a developing trend in Canada and BD&P can meet the challenges of class action litigation with the knowledge, efficiency and skill which has built its reputation as a preeminent litigation firm in Canada.
