The Steering Committee welcomes a distinguished age relevant peer group with 10 – 20 years of experience consisting of an equal split of plaintiff and defense lawyers from across Canada. Each has been selected based on their knowledge and specialization in resolving class action disputes.
Using candid, seminar-style discussion, the group identifies pressing issues, learns how others address these problems, and identifies solutions.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.

Built on meaningful interactions and genuine connections, the Forum is the premiere gathering for preeminent estate planning, litigation and tax professionals across Canada.
"The Forum is not a conference. It's an open collaborative forum where emerging and key issues are discussed and a fantastic opportunity to interact with your peers. It creates and strengthens connections in the bar and provides an opportunity to all participants to have meaningful impact. The overall planning and execution of the forum was excellent and the location and setting was not only, excellent, but conducive to keeping the group engaged."Darren Reed Partner Fasken LLP Calgary, AB
"This was a well-engaged and fun event that gave me helpful information about a variety of class action cases and was enjoyable to meet class action colleagues across Canada that I had previously known by name only."Jean-Marc Leclerc Partner Sotos LLP Toronto, ON
"Very collegial. Allows to meet/chat with counsel you work with/against out of the work environment. More interaction and free discussions than other types of forums/seminars."Karim Diallo Counsel and Mediator Siskinds LLP Québec City, QC
