Leonard v. Manulife Financial Corporation and others : settlement approved by B.C. Supreme Court

Lemer & Company acted for the plaintiff in a class action in British Columbia and Ontario alleging that a large mortgage life and disability insurance business (covering debt payments in the event of death or disability) was subcontracted by Manulife to an unlicensed company, Benesure, that did not comply with government regulation, had inadequately trained representatives, charged the insureds too much for coverage offered and provided inadequate client service. Also, it is alleged the defendants shared confidential information through a computer system operated by Davis and Henderson for marketing purposes in breach of their clients’ privacy rights. The parties reached a settlement subject to approval of courts in British Columbia and Ontario. The British Columbia Supreme Court has approved the settlement.
