Meet Peter W. Kryworuk

Defence Class Actions Lawyer

"I was a senior counsel in the longest class action trial in Canadian history. It's a unique challenge and is different from general litigation. Class action law is constantly evolving. Each case requires us to integrate and balance our strategic, intellectual and procedural skills in a different way."
