Yves Martineau - Stikeman Elliott LLP

Within: Dispute resolution

Stikeman Elliott LLP’s national litigation practice maintains its dominant position in major class actions and also excels in securities litigation, product liability and arbitration — among other areas. Among the Toronto office’s recent highlights, Peter Howard represented Livent in bringing a high-profile negligence claim against its auditors. In addition, dispute resolution head Eliot Kolers successfully acted for Omega in opposing an application by the Ontario Securities Commission for a temporary order to cease trading and suspend its registration. Seasoned litigator David R. Byers and competition litigation lead Katherine L. Kay are also key names in Toronto. Yves Martineau is a sought-after name in Montreal and is defending Société Telus Communications in a class action alleging it set excessive international roaming charges. Other key contacts include Geoffrey Holub in Calgary and David Brown in Vancouver. Louis Bélanger left to join Montreal boutique Arnault Thibault Cléroux.
