Class Action Defense Fight Fire With Fire
Technology provides the plaintiffs’ bar with effective tools to collaborate and recruit individuals to serve as class representatives, adding another dimension to an already creative and aggressive class action litigation environment. We provide skilled advocacy inside and outside the courtroom, counseling our clients in terms of implementing consumer-facing programs to minimize the risk of class litigation and, if litigation is commenced, to establish cost-effective defense strategies and minimize exposure.
We know what it takes for businesses to effectively deal with the threat of class action litigation. Our attorneys are skilled in risk management before a case is filed, by taking steps, such as preparing compulsory arbitration and class action waiver clauses and other effective consumer-facing terms and conditions. We are also highly experienced in aggressively contesting liability early in a case, finding creative ways to defeat class certification, and pursuing early and effective settlement strategies.
Kilpatrick Townsend boasts a nationwide class action defense practice. Our attorneys are comfortable litigating cases with high stakes and visibility, and have defended some of the largest corporations in the United States before federal and state courts and arbitration panels. Clients value our commitment to keeping them informed, engaged, and effectively represented in the face of ongoing regulatory and market changes.
