Please join Bennett Jones and Global Public Affairs for an in-depth look at the key trends in class actions—and what they mean for companies in Canada.
Our expert panel includes Co-Chairs of the Bennett Jones Class Actions group—Cheryl Woodin and Michael Eizenga—and Global Public Affairs’ Chairman Tom Clark and Senior Vice President Kristin Anderson.
The session will help in-house counsel and senior executives prevent and manage high-stakes litigation, from both a legal and reputational perspective. Topics will include the following:
- recognizing the rise and managing the risk of global class actions in Canada;
- how risks in cybersecurity, employment law practices, environmental exposures and public representations are driving the class action industry;
- early triage and response to class actions: managing relationships with customers, stakeholders, regulators, media and the courts; and
- the case for arbitration clauses as a defence to class actions.
