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, mass tort or MDL. With their brand and financial interests 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, 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 formulate and execute the best strategy to minimize the impact of litigation on the business while achieving the best results possible. Throughout the 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 and class actions in lead and supporting roles in the federal and state courts at the trial and appellate levels.
