In addition to the Plaintiff Class Action Group being recognized, Chambers and Partners also named Dave Williams and Jonathan Foreman as top ranked lawyers in their fields.

The Class Action team advises on litigation involving securities, competition, financial services, employment, IP, consumer and product liability issues and has established a reputation as a leading class action group in Canada.
