Reading Time 1 minute read Subscribe



American Brands S.A.

Fasken has successfully represented the interests of American Brands S.A. as part of a claim for reimbursement of the sale price and damages for latent defects affecting a system for filling and capping bottles of bleach. After successfully convincing the trial judge to condemn the defendant Capmatic Ltd. (“Capmatic”) to pay American Brands S.A. (“American Brands”) $464,599 with interest, as well as additional compensation, Fasken persuaded the Court of Appeal of Quebec to dismiss Capmatic's appeal. This file raised interesting questions surrounding the liability of the manufacturer and the professional seller in Quebec Civil Law, as well as the possibility of proving a loss of profits in a context where the applicant corporation does not have audited financial statements.

At trial, the case was led by Mr. Nikolas Blanchette.

On appeal, the Fasken team consisted of Mr. Nikolas Blanchette and Mr. Nicolas-Karl Perrault.
