Class actions, mass torts and MDLs
Defending a lawsuit is never easy, but the stakes and challenges rise exponentially when that lawsuit is a class action, a mass tort or an MDL. With a company’s financial interests and reputation on the line, our clients need top-notch counsel to assist with the early investigation and planning that is critical to their defense. Our class action attorneys have the experience and skill needed to take cases from beginning to end, including strategic advice, fact investigation, early motion practice, discovery and briefing related to class certification issues, settlement and, if necessary, trial and appeal.
Whether facing multidistrict litigation, a class action or collective action, or the prospect of a consumer class action against a core product, our lawyers have the experience to work with our clients to formulate and executive the best strategy. During the past several years, our class action attorneys have defended more than 50 class actions in state and federal courts in Ohio, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. We have substantial experience defending antitrust, consumer, employment, ERISA, insurance, mass/toxic tort, product liability and securities class actions, and we have appeared in major MDLs.
