Class Actions

Ever since 1995 when the Class Proceedings Act came into force in British Columbia, CFM has been acting on behalf of plaintiffs pursuing large corporations, particularly in the areas of competition law and price fixing.

CFM has played a role in many class actions since 1995. One of the most notable to date being its participation as lead counsel in pursuing Hepatitis C litigation and in resolving that litigation on a pan-Canadian basis. The settlement amount was valued at $1.6 billion.
