We resolve even the most complex class actions predictably, efficiently and cost effectively. But what our clients most value is the edge we give them as we counsel ahead of developing trends. We represent clients facing all manner of aggregate actions, including classic opt-out class actions, non–opt-out class actions, quasi-class mass tort cases, “private attorney general” actions, securities litigation, shareholder derivative suits and class arbitrations.
In the past five years alone, we have successfully defended over 100 class and other aggregate actions (involving over 100 million class members) in a variety of forums across the nation. We aggressively challenge plaintiffs’ attempts to aggregate the case. From early evidentiary hearings on class certification to making law on enforcing class waivers in arbitration agreements, we work the strategy necessary for maximum advantage. By tenaciously chasing success on these threshold issues, we set our clients up for favorable settlement negotiations.
We put our clients first. You’ll always work with experienced trial lawyers as well as members of our cross-disciplinary team, who possess deep insight into their respective industries. We are also committed to reducing client costs, through early resolution strategies and smart use of cutting-edge litigation technology.
