Class Actions Against Multiple Defendants in Quebec: The Issues of Legal Interest and Standing to Sue

The articles in this collection focus on the intersection of competition law and class actions. They consider the role that class actions can play in achieving an optimally competitive market for goods and services and in providing compensation for those who have suffered as a result of anticompetitive conduct. They examine key issues such as the appropriate test for class action certification and acceptable methodologies for calculating damages, and in doing so, they bring to bear the views of legal academics, economists, and experienced practising lawyers.
