  • Civil and appellate trial advocacy. 
  • Judicial review of administrative tribunal decision making.

What is a Class Action lawsuit?

A class action lawsuit is where one or more persons sue on behalf of a group of people who have all suffered a similar harm at the hands of the same person, persons, company, or organization and where the foundation facts are substantially common to all class members. 

The advantage of a class action is that a group of people can bring a lawsuit where the case might be too expensive or too complex for a single plaintiff to pursue on his or her own. 

A judge will determine whether a lawsuit should proceed by way of a class action. All legal fees in  connection with class actions are subject to the approval of the Court.

Shell Lawyers has been actively engaged in ensuring that this "access to justice" process is available to all Canadians, whatever their means.
