The threat of class action lawsuits requires businesses to be keenly aware when their actions may result in claims affecting groups of individuals. Stradling lawyers have been defending class actions for over two decades.
We are exceptionally adept at contesting class certification by identifying separate distinct legal and factual issues among the claimant and other “threshold defenses.” We have an exceptional track record of obtaining dismissals of putative class actions. That is, we win cases at the motion to certify stage.
When settlement appears to be in the best interest of the client, our attorneys bring finely honed negotiating skills to the table to obtain the best result. Most class action suits do not reach the trial stage, but when they do, our attorneys present a convincing case crafted to obtain a directed verdict or successful post-trial appeal.
