Disputed podcast | Trends in Canadian class actions

Welcome to Disputed, a Norton Rose Fulbright podcast.

Join co-hosts Andrew McCoomb and Ailsa Bloomer as they interview lawyers and industry leaders from key sectors questioning the trends, issues and opportunities across Canada's evolving legal landscape. Conversations will bring both a global perspective and a litigator's instinct for issue spotting to keep your business risk-ready.

This episode is focused on class actions which are a rapidly evolving risk for Canadian businesses. COVID-19, employment, privacy, consumer protection: these are just a few areas where activity has increased, and it is happening across multiple industries and jurisdictions. As class actions develop in scope and complexity, so do strategies for predicting and managing what seems like a moving target. In this episode, we look at some key trends in class actions, and compare approaches to certification across the provinces. Joining us are the co-chairs of our Canadian class actions team, Toronto partner Randy Sutton, and Montréal partner François-David Paré.
