Product description

Class actions have come to Canada.

Long considered primarily a feature of US litigation, the class action is gaining in popularity in Canada reaching across the country and into virtually every corner of commerce. Plaintiffs seek to negotiate more lucrative settlements and hold companies liable while courts search for more efficient ways to handle a burgeoning case load.

We are in the nascent stages of this aspect of practice.

  • Groundbreaking cases are being decided regularly that will radically alter your ability to protect your client from class actions
  • New areas of practice are being brought into the ambit of this form of litigation
  • Shareholders have now seized on these actions as a means of seeking redress from companies that do not live up to disclosure requirements or take actions that negatively affect stock prices

Class Action Defence Quarterly is a new civil litigation newsletter service providing you with the information you need to protect your client at all stages of the class action. Eliot Kolers, a Partner at Stikeman Elliott LLP and a distinguished Advisory Board bring you the latest and most authoritative opinions on the general principles behind the class action and the practical ramifications of recent case law.

  • Multi-jurisdictional class actions and the challenges of dealing with classes that are national in scope
  • Recent costs awards
  • Decertificaton and post-certification issues
  • Settlement considerations and legal tests for determining appropriate terms
