In the latest edition of Best Lawyers in Canada, 28 Lenczner Slaght lawyers earned a total of 100 rankings, up from 86 in 2019.
Alan Lenczner is quoted in the Law Times article Class Proceedings Fund to get money from class action on August 6, 2019. This article discusses a recent decision that approves a cy près distribution to the Class Proceedings Fund.
Paul-Erik Veel was mentioned in the Law Times article “Pre-certification motion can be efficient” on October 28, 2018. This article discusses why the launch of a pre-certification motion in a proposed class action may be worthwhile.
Canada’s leading litigation firm is proud to announce that 25 of the firm’s 58 lawyers have been recognized in the Best Lawyers in Canada 2019 publication across multiple categories.
Lenczner Slaght strengthens its legal research expertise with the addition of another talented associate.
Monique Jilesen was mentioned in the Law Times article “Crown must pay costs after being ‘overly enthusiastic’” on July 30, 2018.
Monique Jilesen, a partner at Lenczner Slaght Royce Smith Griffin LLP, says lawyers must tread carefully when they get into the merits of a proposed class action, even as early as certification, as parties try to get as much information as possible.
That’s especially the case with expert witnesses, since Canadian procedure doesn’t usually have discovery of expert witnesses in advance of trial.
“It was just a disproportionate request to what was being asked,” Jilesen says, who was not involved in the case.
