Product liability litigation remains a challenging, business-critical risk for pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers. Join Grant Worden, Sylvie Rodrigue and Nicole Mantini as they examine current and emerging trends relating to “mass torts”, the management of complex, multi-jurisdictional proceedings and copycat litigation from other jurisdictions. The panel will also review recent notable decisions and changes to Ontario’s Class Proceedings Act, and will discuss emerging issues for 2021 and beyond.
