INFORMATION FOR LAWYERS LOOKING FOR LEGAL EXPERTISE IN BC AND CANADA

38. Will there be any money left over after paying each claimant’s share and the lawyers’ fees?

38. Will there be any money left over after paying each claimant’s share and the lawyers’ fees?

The lawyers have designed the distribution so that there is no money left over. We will write cheques to claimants for all of the money other than legal fees. We want as much of the money as possible to go to claimants.

There is a chance that some claimants will not deposit their cheques. If there is enough money from uncashed cheques, we will likely send out second cheques. Before we do anything with the money from uncashed cheques, we will send letters to all claimants to let them know what we are proposing to do. We will also have to get the Court to approve what we propose to do.

29. How many people are getting $0/$500/another amount?

Due to privacy concerns, we cannot post exact numbers on the website. However, we can advise that the payouts break down into four approximately equal groups:

  • roughly 1/4 of claimants are receiving $0;
  • roughly 1/4 of claimants are receiving $500;
  • roughly 1/4 of claimants are receiving between $500 and $10,000; and
  • roughly 1/4 of claimants are receiving more than $10,000.

27. Can I see the detailed calculations of my share / of everyone’s shares?

We are happy to send you detailed information about the calculation of your share. Please contact Kimberley Hill at khill@cfmlawyers.ca or 1-800-689-2322.

We cannot send you the details of the calculations of other claimants’ shares due to privacy concerns.
