It has been 20 years since Ontario adopted class proceedings based primarily on a liberalized version of U.S. legislation.

Come hear experts from Fasken Martineau and visiting attorneys from U.S. powerhouse Weil Gotshal describe the fundamental and evolving distinctions in the cross border regimes for class actions. Our panel will focus on recent developments in both the procedural aspects of the class action process and the substantive law in areas such as securities, antitrust and product liability. This programme will provide you with tools necessary to manage the business risks your company faces in high-stakes class action litigation.

Presenters:     Steven Rosenhek & Paul Martin (Fasken Martineau)
