About Us

We are a recognized leader in class action litigation in Canada.  We take on complex and challenging class actions across all industries, and prosecute them to conclusion.  With a large and experienced team of class action professionals, we match resources against the largest defence firms in the country. Our cases have been at the forefront of the development of the law in diverse areas including employment (wage and hour litigation), antitrust (Competition Act), privacy, consumer protection and franchising and distribution. The firm is ranked by Chambers Global – Canada 2018 for dispute resolution: class actions (plaintiff).

Examples of our class actions include:

  • Obtained a $45 million judgment against a major Canadian law firm in a class action by former GM dealers.
  • Co-counsel in the recently-settled employment class action against Scotiabank and a similar outstanding case against CIBC alleging unpaid overtime.
  • Co-counsel in the retirement benefit class action on behalf of 3,300 retired salaried and executive employees of GM Canada. The case was won on summary judgment and subsequently resolved in a settlement worth approximately $135 million.
  • Co-counsel on several class action lawsuits concerning alleged price-fixing among automobile parts manufacturers. This is believed to be the largest group of price-fixing cases in an industry in Canadian history.
  • Leading a lawsuit on behalf of nearly a million Ontario customers of Bell Mobility and related brands alleging that Bell breaches its contracts with its customers by seizing credit balances and that Bell engages in “unfair business practices” contrary to Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act.
  • Leading a class action on behalf of Canadian Midas dealers alleging that Midas Canada breached its duties of good faith and fair dealing to the dealers by eliminating a preferential purchasing system which was an integral part of the Midas franchise system.

 

Our Mission

We Value Justice for All

Justice belongs to everyone, not just the wealthy. People who have been wronged deserve compensation. Institutions that neglect their duties or abuse their power should be held accountable. That is why we choose to act for plaintiffs in class action lawsuits.

We Are Committed to Your Case

When we take on your case, we see it through to the end. We settle cases when it is in your best interest but we will never do so to take the easy way out. We’re one of the few law firms in Canada that have taken class actions to trial and appeal. That hard-earned experience sets us apart and allows us to get the best results for you.

Bring Our Power to Your Case

There is strength in numbers. If you believe you have been wronged and would like to discuss bringing a class action, please contact one of our lawyers. We have the experience and resources to help you.
