reBlog from Interview with Won Kim on Cross-Border Class Action Litigation

The Trial Warrior Blog’s readers who are interested in cross-border/transnational litigation and crisis management issues, will likely be interested in Bulletproof Blog’s ( recent interview with Won Kim, name partner at Toronto’s Kim Orr Barristers P.C. In the interview, Kim discusses a recent ruling that allows massive U.S. support for class action litigants in Canada and what affect this ruling may have on law firms and class action litigation in both the U.S. and Canada. Here is a brief excerpt:
“While Canada is a largely untapped area for American lawyers, it is important to remember that the real winners are the injured shareholders. As a result of this ruling, plaintiffs will have access to previously unavailable expertise and unparalleled resources. In our case, Michael Spencer is recognized as one of the top securities lawyers in North America, with decades litigating some of the largest shareholder cases. Arthur Miller is a preeminent legal scholar and civil procedure expert. (He has authored or co-authored numerous articles and more than 40 books, including Federal Practice and Procedure and Civil Procedure, and served as a member and reporter on the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules of the Judicial Conference of the United States.) The value these two elite lawyers bring to the case cannot be overstated.”
