Class andCollective Action

Class action lawsuits can impact multiple business concerns, including Wage and Hour, Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and discrimination claims.

Allegations of this nature can be challenging to navigate under the best of circumstances, which is where our practice comes in. We help clients navigate employment and consumer law challenges, defending clients on myriad class action matters, including:

  • Product-related cases
  • Securities litigation
  • “Fair Credit” and “Debt Collection legislation
  • Consumer transactions
  • State and federal court class actions

Our national team’s skills and experience help clients maneuver through both the legal and factual elements of class actions – whether they are nuisances or serious challenges to the company’s existence. Working closely with our clients’ management and general counsel, we prepare clients for the legal hurdles they are likely to face, such as:

  • Numerosity
  • Putative class members
  • Common questions of law or fact
  • Legal standing and justiciability to assert the claim
  • Whether the plaintiff can adequately represent the case

Additional class action services include defense surrounding the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and allegations concerning collection letters, credit reporting, litigation activity and other debt recovery efforts. The team also defends against litigation alleging Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) violations concerning consumer consent and automatic telephone dialing systems. We have defeated class certification in a wide range of class action matters, successfully defending and resolving lawsuits involving hundreds of named plaintiffs.

Clients also benefit from our experience conducting nationwide audits of businesses to achieve compliance. These first-hand analyses result in timely learnings and real-life lessons that translate to practical client support. Audits also help clients stave off class action lawsuits that cost the company tremendous time and resources to defend. The practice group also creates, develops and helps clients implement alternative dispute resolution programs, including mediation and arbitration agreements that encompass a class action waiver.

Through insightful, creative strategies, our attorneys overcome many potential class actions, always working to secure the best possible results for our clients.
