A short introduction to Mike Peerless, Member of Siskinds Class Action Law Group.
When franchisors and manufacturers face large, multi-jurisdictional or cross-border class action claims, Siskinds is ready to defend. We have the class-action, litigation, business and franchise experience that's needed to defend complex, multi-jurisdictional matters. Through our Quebec City office, we have the means to address settlement in a province where complications often arise. Very few firms have the experience that we do acting as lead counsel, or working with lead counsel to achieve a common settlement.
As the first to certify and settle a class action in Ontario under the 1992 Class Proceedings Act, Siskinds has followed up by establishing a track record that makes it a world leader in the practice of class action law.
The Siskinds class action team is comprised of a group of seasoned and talented litigators with a substantial record of success for their clients. Representing both plaintiffs and defendants, Siskinds has been counsel to the class in more than 30 cases. These include cases involving breast implants, TMJ implants, diet drugs, vanishing premium insurance products, improper mortgage penalties, plastic venting for mid efficiency furnaces, improper pricing of consumer products, wrongful termination and employment benefits, retirement benefits, oil refinery emissions, fireplace design, investment schemes and the e-coli tainted water tragedy.
In addition to authoring Class Actions Law and Practice, a Butterworths publication and the leading Canadian text on the subject, members of the team developed and teach a class action course at the University of Western Ontario. Team members are also frequent presenters at various continuing legal education seminars, professional conferences and meetings of the bar.
Moving Forward. We look forward to working together with you to start, expand or re-structure your system, or to solve whatever problem or seize whatever opportunity you're dealing with, anywhere.
