Looking Forward: Canadian Class Actions in 2017
March 02, 2017
In 2016, significant decisions were rendered in class proceedings that provide clarity on how Canadian courts intend to interact with each other, domestic and foreign litigants, and courts internationally going forward. Recent trends towards the globalization of Canada’s class regime have continued.
Bennett Jones was involved in some of the most important cases of 2016. Our active and expanding class actions practice group maintained its hard-earned reputation as a leader in the Canadian legal market. By leveraging our practical experience, litigation expertise, and unparalleled knowledge of procedure, we helped clients achieve meaningful results that aligned with their business objectives.
With the additional clarity provided by recent decisions, the stage is set for continued Canadian class action activity in 2017. Our 2017 Looking Forward publication contains our discussion of recent Canadian class action trends and our look forward at how we anticipate those trends will impact strategies for defeating class actions or potentially avoiding them altogether.
