When a class action is filed, the financial and reputational stakes are high. These actions not only pose great financial risk, but also have the potential to adversely affect all aspects of our clients’ businesses. Clients need lawyers who can provide the sophisticated and effective representation required to navigate complex legal and factual issues and defend reputations, products, and brands. Our lawyers understand how to favorably resolve class actions at all stages—whether through a motion to compel arbitration, a motion to dismiss, defeating class certification, winning on the merits through summary judgement or trial, or by a favorable settlement. We have a long track record of successfully defending class actions in a wide range of industries and practices in federal and state courts across the country.
Our lawyers also defend clients in governmental investigations and other litigation that frequently occur in connection with the claims giving rise to the class actions. Defending such multifaceted litigation requires a carefully constructed, well thought out game plan, and our lawyers have extensive experience helping clients formulate those plans.
