Financial liability stemming from a class action lawsuit can be immense and, particularly in the case of a start-up or other small or mid sized company, can completely devastate a venture.
In most instances, because of the scope of the issues outlined in a class action claim and the number of people who allege to be affected, class action lawsuits will represent hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars in liability to the organizations they are filed against. In addition, mounting an effective and successful defence against a class action lawsuit can also be very expensive. All of this can be logistically and financially overwhelming for smaller organizations.
At Milosevic Fiske LLP, we act as defence counsel in class action claims and have a specific interest in helping small to mid sized companies. As a boutique firm ourselves, we understand the particular needs of smaller organizations, especially with respect to budget. We thrive on taking on the most challenging claims and addressing them in a streamlined and effective manner. We have experience managing large, intricate matters involving extensive volumes of documentary disclosure, hundreds of plaintiffs, and a complex litigation framework. We can work with you to craft an effective defence in a way that makes sense with the resources available to you.
Our founding partner, David Milosevic, has completed a Master of Laws in Civil Litigation with a focus on class action litigation. We help start-ups and small businesses across all sectors and have the necessary skill and experience to defend even the most complicated class action lawsuits.
All of the lawyers at Milosevic Fiske LLP are accomplished litigators. We have conducted trials and appeals at all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada. We are in court or in mediations almost every day and, as a result, have become exceptionally adept at thinking on our feet and addressing the unexpected.
As with all our litigation services, we approach our class action practice with a focus on thorough risk assessment, cost efficiency and strong advocacy. Where necessary, we are prepared to take class action claims all the way to trial rather than advise settlement of unmeritorious claims.
If you are a small or mid sized company or a start-up, and a class action claim has been filed against you, contact Milosevic Fiske LLP. We can help simplify what is otherwise highly complex litigation. Our experienced litigation lawyers help our clients see through the dense forest of even the most complicated disputes. We excel at cutting through the underbrush and guiding clients to a creative, cost-effective solution. Call us at 416-916-1387 or contact us online to learn more about how we can help.
