At Bennett Mounteer LLP, we exemplify an enduring dedication to the pursuit of justice for our clients. With a relentless focus on advocating for class members' rights, we bring expertise and experience to the legal challenges faced.
Decades of Experience
Since our inception in 2003, we have been at the forefront of class action litigation. To date, we have represented clients in over 40 high-profile class actions, securing more than 100 reported decisions. Both Lexpert and Best Lawyers have acknowledged Bennett Mounteer LLP a leading class action counsel.
Proven Trial Proficiency
While it's often said that most class actions don't make it to trial, our extensive track record proves we're well-prepared when they do. Our wealth of experience in conducting full contested trials sets us apart and ensures you're in capable hands.
A substantial number of our cases originate from other lawyers who seek our specialized expertise in handling complex class actions. If you are interested in learning more about our class action capabilities or the wide range of legal services we offer, we warmly welcome you to reach out to us.
Shaping Canada's Legal Landscape
Our firm has been instrumental in litigating landmark cases that have significantly impacted Canadian law. Among our notable precedents are:
Establishing the right of landowners temporarily impacted by public construction projects to claim damages for injurious affection.
Determining that clauses which prohibit consumers from initiating class actions are not universally enforceable.
Confirming that courts possess the authority to grant honorariums to individuals who serve as Representative Plaintiffs upon a case's successful resolution.
A Reputation for Analytical Rigor
We pride ourselves on a methodical, analytically rigorous approach to the practice of law. While becoming a licensed lawyer in Canada requires a minimum of a three-year JD or LL.B. degree and a year of articling, our lawyers go above and beyond. Each has attained postgraduate degrees in law, credentials often reserved for those entering academia.
