Class Actions & Collective Actions

    We have successfully devised early defense strategies that result in the dismissal of many cases before class certification and discovery.

    Having successfully defended class action claims in state and federal courts for several decades, our attorneys offer tailored advice to clients in a variety of industries.

    In each class action suit, we assess the following:

    • Pre-certification dismissal options
    • Other strategies for early pleading, including fail-safe class definitions, ascertain ability and no-loss classes
    • The significance of the potential threat to the business
    • The preclusive effect of early global resolution

    • Breach of fiduciary duty
    • Collection of premium taxes
    • Consumer protection and consumer sales practices
    • Derivative suits
    • Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)
