Class actions

Class actions demand immediate and efficient guidance from an experienced legal team. We have strong experience in all aspects of Canadian class actions.

Our team represents clients in a broad range of class actions. For example, real estate, securities, defective products, wrongful detention and environmental incidents. Plus many others.

Class actions create significant potential liability for a business. They can also generate negative publicity and erode customer and shareholder confidence. More so than most litigation, class actions drain valuable management time and create reputational risk. You need the guidance of an expert team to assist you in navigating these challenges.

Deep litigation bench strength

Class action litigation is a growing trend in Canada. It is complex and requires strategic decision-making.

We can help you navigate intricate class action procedures by drawing upon our deep litigation bench strength. Our lawyers specialize in all areas of litigation, from commercial and construction, to energy and IP, and everything in between.

We can guide you through the class action process whether circumstances call for an early negotiated settlement, arbitration or a trial. Our team regularly appears before all levels of Alberta's Courts, other provincial courts, the Federal Court and the Supreme Court of Canada. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in class actions.
