Class action lawsuits are high stakes affairs. Businesses faced with the threat of class action litigation are in jeopardy of significant financial loses and reputational damage.
The multijurisdictional and cross-border implications of many class proceedings add complexity and raise the stakes in these actions. With no room for error, rolling the dice simply isn’t an option. Eyford Partners has the experience and skill to help clients defend their interests.
Eyford Partners’ lawyers focus on representing defendants in a wide variety of class proceedings, including cases involving medical and consumer products, deceptive/misleading marketing, and government and institutional negligence. Our lawyers have acted for both defendants and for planitiffs, thereby putting us in a position to understand and anticipate strategies employed by both sides in class action litigation.
Having experienced counsel on your side can make all the difference in securing a successful resolution to a class proceeding. We represent the interests of both Canadian and international businesses at every stage of the process, including class certification, discovery, trial, appeals, notice, and claims administration. We also work with clients to help resolve class action litigation outside of court, by providing advice and advocacy in mediation, arbitration, and informal settlement negotiation.
Each claim is unique and so is the most effective strategy for advancing your position. We take a bespoke approach; whether your dispute calls for a vigorous defence against class certification, steps aimed at narrowing the parties or issues raised in the litigation, or negotiating settlement, our lawyers have the experience to assist you.
