Class actions are known as “bet the company” litigation for a reason. They pose a serious threat to businesses both based on the cost to defend these types of cases and the potential exposure in the event of adverse liability. As a result, clients who are in the unfortunate situation of facing a class action (or potential class action) need an attorney with class action experience to limit the potentially disastrous effects of such a claim.
LGC’s attorneys have significant experience representing clients in class actions, and understand our clients’ interests in ending these cases as quickly and effectively as possible, while preventing the possibility of future claims. To do so, LGC applies an aggressive early approach to class actions, including challenging the legal sufficiency of the claims, attacking certification at multiple levels, limiting discovery, and exploring creative and cost-effective alternatives to resolve the case without class certification. We also counsel clients who have uncovered issues that may result in a class action, and provide advice to those clients regarding ways to minimize or even eliminate the threat of a class action.
