Siskinds Retains Securities Class Action Title

Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) has once again named Toronto- and London-based Siskinds LLP the top securities class action firm in Canada.

The bragging rights come as part of ISS’s annual Securities Class Action Services ranking, the SCAS 50, which ranks the top 50 law firms in the world for their work in the field.

“It’s deeply gratifying to be recognized by SCAS for our service to our clients,” said Dimitri Lascaris, a partner in the group. “In 2011, we were again able to deliver strong results for investors who rely on us.”

The firm’s 10 lawyers act exclusively in the securities class action field and can be credited for recovering over $350 million for clients.

In its press release, Siskinds touts the fact that it successfully certified the first class action in Ontario in 1993, and that its lawyers were counsel in precedent-setting cases, including Arctic Glacier and IMAX, the first two cases to be granted leave under the Part XXIII.1 of the Securities Act.

“We are grateful for our clients’ trust, and hope we continue to deserve it,” said Siskinds partner Charles Wright. “Our team’s commitment to investor protection is at the heart of everything we do.”

Siskinds has offices in London and Toronto and will soon be opening an office in Montreal. Read the full press release here.
