Osler is defending Shoppers Drug Mart, Canada’s largest retail pharmacy chain, in a certified franchise class action claiming $500 million on behalf of nearly 1500 current and former pharmacy operators in all Canadian provinces except Quebec. Through a preliminary motion and vigorous defence of the certification motion, Osler has significantly narrowed the claims that are being advanced on behalf of the class.

The Osler Litigation team is led by Mark Gelowitz and includes Jennifer Dolman, Shawn Irving and Evan Thomas.
