Benchmark Canada recently presented its 2017 awards at a gala ceremony in Toronto. We are proud to announce that Osler was recognized as Class Action Firm of the Year, and that Osler partner Maureen Killoran Q.C. won Energy/Resources Litigator Of The Year.
Osler's award-winning Class Action Defence Team advises on and solves business critical issues for organizations in Canada and around the world. We have been at the cutting edge of the development of class action law since the introduction of class action legislation in Canada, representing defendants on the most challenging (“bet the company” and “bet the industry”) class actions in the country. Our team members have broad and deep experience defending clients in class actions across a wide range of areas including: product liability/consumer protection, privacy, securities, banking, environmental, misadvertising/competition, pensions and benefits, employment and franchise.
Maureen is the former Managing Partner of Osler’s Calgary office and a trusted advisor to many major commercial clients. Her litigation practice is devoted to complex commercial disputes with particular emphasis on the resource industry. She is a seasoned trial and appeal lawyer with experience in commercial arbitrations (domestic and international) and other forms of dispute resolution. Maureen represents a diverse group of clients and has extensive experience in resource industry disputes, both in Canada and abroad, acting on major hydroelectric, oil sands, midstream, upstream and downstream disputes. A significant portion of Maureen’s practice includes judicial review, regulatory appeals and the defence of environmental and Aboriginal claims in federal and provincial courts across the country.
