Our Class Action Defense practice is a nationwide leader. Our experience spans industries and subject matters, and we have litigated class action cases in virtually every major jurisdiction throughout the country. In the past seven years, we have represented clients in hundreds of class actions, the vast majority of which have been dismissed or effectively resolved at an early stage in the litigation and on terms favorable to our clients. Consistent with our clients’ interests in these cases, we typically push for early dismissal or resolution through aggressive motion practice, but we are also uniquely experienced and capable to try these cases to conclusion. We are one of the few firms with actual experience trying class actions to verdict.
We have deep experience representing clients who face large numbers of class actions. We are long-time counsel for Home Depot and Equifax in class actions nationwide, and we have represented other companies such as Chevron, General Motors, GSK, Kimberly-Clark, Wal-Mart, ConocoPhillips, The Coca-Cola Company, Purdue Pharma and Progressive Insurance in class actions around the country. These clients are sophisticated consumers of the services that our practice offers, and for years, we have proven adept at partnering with these clients to defend class action claims. Our experience and value has also benefited clients who face class litigation less frequently, whether in cases that are viewed as mere nuisance or those that challenge significant business practices.
Our success in class actions stems from our unparalleled experience. We have learned the defenses and arguments that are most likely to prevail on behalf of our clients, whether on the merits or in defense of class certification, and we know enough to recognize those claims that are more appropriate for early or class-wide resolution. Trusting our class action practice allows our clients to tap into this experience and know-how.
