Pioneers in British Columbia Class Action Lawsuits Since 1995
A class action is a court proceeding in which one or more claimants represent a larger group of people who are all making the same kind of claim against the same defendant. The court's decision is binding on all the class members, subject to each member's right to opt out.
Since British Columbia enacted the Class Proceedings Act in 1995, our North Shore class action lawyers at Poyner Baxter LLP have been at the forefront of class action litigation in Canada. We have gained a reputation throughout the province and nationwide for our work in this area.
