Tina Q. Yang



Tina Yang is an associate lawyer at Waddell Phillips, practicing in class actions and civil litigation. She has litigated diverse, ground-breaking class actions – from mass terminations to institutional negligence and beyond – for almost a decade.

Tina brings her sharp strategic instincts, tenacious advocacy, and passion for social justice to every case. She has represented clients before all levels of court in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia, as well as the Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal. Some of her notable cases include the RCMP gender discrimination and harassment class action (2017) and the Canada student loans privacy breach class action (2018), both of which resulted in landmark settlements for thousands of class members.

Prior to joining Waddell Phillips, Tina trained at other top class action boutiques in Toronto, after articling at a full-service Bay Street firm. She currently serves as Vice Chair of the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (Toronto chapter) and sits on the executive of the Ontario Bar Association Class Actions Section.
