Class Action

A class action lawsuit is one of the most serious risks a company could face. If not handled aggressively and effectively, the results could be dire. But the right representation can bring hope to what may look like a very troublesome situation. For example, experienced class-action counsel know that an enforceable arbitration agreement has the potential to avoid the class action altogether—but the difference between enforcing that arbitration agreement and having it waived lies in the experience and tenacity of the counsel you retain.
