In the Legal Post's ranking of biggest class action firms, Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) took top spot reporting more outstanding class actions on the defence side than any other firm in Canada.

“Class actions are a top strategic area for our firm's development and growth,” says Tim Buckley, the National Leader of the Class Actions Group at BLG. “The practice is becoming increasingly specialized to the point where clients won't settle for a team of generalists anymore. They want class-action teams that include lawyers specialized in specific areas of class-action law, like securities and competition and product liability.”
