16 Feb Class Action Lawsuits

Our firm’s involvement with class actions dates as far back as 1995, when the government consulted experts from our firm to assist with the drafting of the Class Proceedings Act, which governs class action law suits in the province of BC. Our firm filed the first two lawsuits under that legislation, one of which, Harrington v. Dow Corning Corp., concluded in a $25,126,797.94 USD settlement ($50,940,263.55 CAD, adjusted for inflation) for the plaintiffs in connection to their claims involving the defendants’ manufacture and distribution of silicone gel breast implants. We have successfully resolved a number of further class actions since.
