Class Actions Litigation is Escalating in Volume and Complexity.
Do You Have the Tools and Capacity You Need to Give Your Clients the Best Advice For Litigation Success?
Corporations and governments are increasingly exposed to business, financial, and reputational risks arising from class actions proceedings, which may be commenced in any of the provinces and territories in Canada. Growing areas for litigation include securities class actions â€” which alone increased by 125% over the past year â€” and employee overtime claims, while a significant risk of new actions arises from recent amendments to the federal Competition Act. Meanwhile, corporate Canada struggles to avoid, where possible, and cost-effectively manage, where necessary, class actions on a multijurisdictional and North American basis.
At The Canadian Instituteâ€™s 10th Annual National Forum on Class Actions Litigation, our outstanding speaker faculty will provide you with the legal updates, innovative strategies, and best practices you need to know to avoid or mitigate exposure to class actions risks, including:
DISCOVERING how to effectively navigate multijurisdictional hurdles
