Our mission

We stand up for
what’s yours

1

We Value Justice for All

Justice belongs to everyone, not just the wealthy. People who have been wronged deserve compensation. Institutions that neglect their duties or abuse their power should be held accountable. That is why we choose to act for plaintiffs in class action lawsuits.

2

We Are Committed to Your Case

When we take on your case, we see it through to the end. We settle cases when it is in your best interest but we will never do so to take the easy way out. We’re one of the few law firms in Canada that have taken class actions to trial and appeal. That hard-earned experience sets us apart and allows us to get the best results for you.
