We know how damaging a class action lawsuit can be to a company, and work to both defeat the class certification and win summary judgment as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, should that strategy not work for the specific facts of the lawsuit, we work with our client to mitigate damages and minimize liability and expense.
Our class action litigators regularly act as national and local counsel in class actions in both state and federal court. Our experienced attorneys defend clients in every facet of class action proceedings, including class certification, motions to dismiss, summary judgment, standing issues, unfair trade practice act issues, remedial action issues, trials, opt-out and objector issues, and all facets of parallel administrative proceedings, related criminal proceedings and derivative actions.
Some of our recent representative experience includes:
- Defending twenty corporations in purported class action involving minority shareholder squeeze out allegations seeking return of over $220 million in deferred capital.
- Defense of a corporation in purported derivative class corporate governance litigation.
- Defense of a less-than-truckload trucking company in an antitrust multi-district litigation. We were instrumental in helping defendants prevail on a joint motion to dismiss.
