The potential risks of a class action lawsuit extend far beyond damage to a company’s bottom line. Brands can be tarnished, employees may become demoralized and markets can punish share prices.

Our lawyers have broad experience in major domestic, cross-border and international class actions. Our highly accomplished litigators have expertise in a broad range of class action specialties. These include antitrust and competition, fraud, product liability, consumer protection, securities, employment, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, automotive, intellectual property, environmental, and banking litigation. Our prime focus is to preserve shareholder value and public reputation by defeating claims early.

Our law firm has handled some of the biggest domestic, cross-border and international class actions.
