Class Action

B.C. Consumer Protection Lawyers

A class action lawsuit comes about when a large number of individuals and/or businesses have been harmed in the same way by the same defendant. In most cases, class actions are brought against businesses, governments or other organizations. The strength of a class action is that it allows the wronged parties to sue the defendant as a group rather than individually. Suing as a class often gives the plaintiffs more bargaining power and makes the cost of representation more manageable.

Class actions are extremely complex legal matters that require the attention of an experienced law firm with the knowledge, the skill and the commitment to protect the rights of those involved. The Vancouver class action lawyers at the law firm of Grant Kovacs Norell represent parties in all types of these cases.
