Defending Class Actions in Canada, 3rd Edition is Canada’s top resource for enterprises exposed in any way to potential or actual class actions and for the lawyers who represent them.
Any company doing business in Canada will encounter growing enthusiasm for class actions among plaintiffs’ lawyers and the courts. This book outlines the procedural machinery of Canadian class actions and the law that governs them, provides strategic analysis on managing the risks they entail, and explains the most important recent developments and trends on a national and international scale.
The greatest strength of the book derives from its authorship by seasoned class action defence lawyers at McCarthy Tétrault, who practise as members of a national class actions defence practice group, often engaged together and with counsel in the United States and abroad in the defence of parallel actions involving similar allegations brought against the same entity in multiple separate jurisdictions.
