Dispute resolution

The Montréal office of McMillan has been building a steadily ascending profile as of late. “They merged with Lang Michener in 2009 and ever since then have come a long way in class actions, competition and product liability, with some of the product liability work being individual and class action work,” confirms a peer. “They have been involved in competition work before it was ‘trendy.’ They also are involved in aviation. They get some of the best of the best in eastern Canada.” The latter practices are largely attributed to Éric Vallières, who lays claim to securing a rare denial of certification in a class action for Capital One. Sidney Elbaz, another class actions specialist, is also not wanting for acclaim. “Sidney did a great job on a class action for Netflix,” raves a peer. “He led a resistance of certification and then won the appeal.”
