CLASS ACTION LITIGATION
Class Actions can avoid the necessity for hundreds or thousands of people filing similar individual lawsuits to claim relief. This often means that a single person can commence a class action on behalf of hundreds or even thousands of people. Class actions promote access to justice and ensure that people with similar claims are treated similarly.
We are experienced determined litigators who have many years of litigation experience and have applied this knowledge in numerous complex litigation and class action claims for our clients.
As members of the PDBL – Privacy and Data Breach Law Group we are currently representing class members in a number of class actions against organizations that have failed to protect their valuable data.
-CURRENT CLASS ACTIONS-
A class action has been commenced in Ontario on behalf of Canadians affected by a Capital One data breach that led to the personal information of credit card holders and applicants being released to the public.
A class action lawsuit has been filed in the Federal Court of Canada on behalf of all Black employees. This action concerns systemic racism in the Public Service of Canada, directed at self-identifying Black individuals who work for or with the Public Service of Canada – this includes current employees and those who have been employed within the past 50 years.
