Class Action Defence Cases
WILL DAVIDSON LLP was on the ground floor of class actions in Ontario.
Shortly after the enactment of the first class proceedings action in the early 1990s, WILL DAVIDSON LLP successfully defended against one of the first major class actions in Ontario history: Sutherland v. Canadian Red Cross Society 17 O.R. 645 (S.C.).
Over the two decades that followed, our lawyers have excelled in this field, taking on class proceedings in such diverse areas as drugs and products liability, airplane disasters, infections diseases, and environmental claims.
Faced with the significant challenges that class proceedings entail, our institutional clients have consistently turned to WILL DAVIDSON LLP for results oriented representation. Our focus in such proceedings is centered on obtaining the most beneficial and economic outcome for our clients and to avoid years of costly litigation.
Our lawyers have also acted on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants in some of the country’s most high-profile class proceedings, in such diverse areas as drugs and product liability, airplane disasters, outbreaks of infectious diseases, and environmental contamination.
Our defense team has been highly successful at obtaining satisfactory results for institutional clients menaced by the spectre of a class proceeding. Not only are our lawyers results-driven, we never lose sight of the fact that without careful guidance, the legal costs of these complex proceedings can spiral out of control. That’s why we carefully consider our defense’s impact on our client’s bottom line. For further information, please contact Chris Morrison or Gary R. Will
