We have a deep bench of trial attorneys with extensive experience in all aspects of class action practice—from removal and motions to dismiss to class certification, discovery, trial and appeal. We’ve successfully resolved cases at all stages and are equally comfortable serving as national coordinating counsel or regional counsel on multi-state class action cases. In all instances, you’ll have a team that understands the best strategy and arguments, is familiar with your specific business or industry issues, and can employ the project management and expert resources necessary to develop and present your defense.
We’ve defended class action claims for a wide variety of businesses including financial services, agribusiness, utilities, telecommunications, energy, manufacturing, retail, pharmaceuticals and franchising.
We’ve successfully resolved class action claims pertaining to:
- Unfair trade practices, unfair competition and related consumer claims including California’s Unfair Competition Law (Section 17200)
- Securities fraud, insider trading and related shareholder claims
- Products liability
- Wage and hour law
- Fair Credit Reporting Act
- Contract validity
- Toxic torts
- Franchisee disputes
- Ratepayer claims
We understand that early resolution of class actions is key. We use effective strategies to remove or change venue, consolidate actions, move to dismiss and attack all elements of class certification. If a case continues to trial we collaborate with you in creating a right-sized team with the requisite experience to achieve a successful result. At every stage we engage technology and project management resources to maximize efficiency and communication with you and other parties involved with your representation.
