Being served with a class action complaint is every company’s worst fear. Such lawsuits are high stakes, complicated and costly to defend. Some recent settlements have been in the tens of millions of dollars. And they’re being fueled by an aggressive plaintiffs bar and a growing number of statutes creating private remedies.
We’re ready to move decisively from the first call.
Many of our lawyers have backgrounds in the public sector, bringing with them trusted government relationships at the FTC, FDA, Consumer Product Safety Commission, and every level of the court system; relationships that will help to ensure your position is clearly heard and given fair consideration.
If your case is in California, you’ll benefit from our insight into the state’s Unfair Competition Law, having represented defendants, plaintiffs and amicus curiae in many such cases. Not only are we well versed in the law’s legislative history and 70 years of case law, we’ve argued a number of first-impression cases before the California courts of appeal and Supreme Court.
The biggest victories come outside the courtroom
In class actions, court is your last option. To help prevent class actions from even being filed, we provide prelitigation counseling so you can proactively address possible issues before they arise. If a class action is filed, we have an exemplary record in defeating class certifications. If the case moves forward, we will explore every option for advantageous settlement unless trial becomes your most favorable option.
