Class action filings in Canada have increased dramatically in the past few years [see Canada Report: New Players At the Table in the August issue of The American Lawyer]. Meanwhile, Canadian firms are filing more antitrust and securities class action claims in tandem with U.S. plaintiffs firms.

In April one of Canada’s top plaintiffs-side class action firms, Windsor, Ontario-based Sutts Strosberg, hired former Milberg of counsel Andrew Morganti as its adviser on U.S. complex litigation. At Milberg, Morganti helped redevelop the firm’s antitrust practice and its relationships with clients and members of the class action bar. Now, at Sutts Strosberg, he’s assisting firm founder Harvey Strosberg with the firm’s institutional and commercial clients in evaluating potential parallel class actions.
