Class Actions

Class action lawsuits (and litigation involving aggregated claims) have increased exponentially over the last two decades. The days where only big businesses had to worry about class action lawsuits are long gone. Today, even very small businesses can be confronted with class action litigation. Lawsuits involving large numbers of claimants or potential claimants involve unique procedural hurdles and opportunities. An experienced team of attorneys is often required to help companies accurately navigate the path to a successful resolution of what can easily become “bet the company” litigation.

For many years, and in many different types of cases, Berger Kahn has successfully represented clients of every size in connection with class action litigation. Berger Kahn attorneys will work with you to help you develop an understanding of the class action process, and a litigation or settlement strategy that encompasses your business’ best interests. Because litigation expense can mount very quickly, it is imperative that strategy objectives be identified as early as possible. Our attorneys work closely with clients to assess the risk/reward calculus of the available strategies, so that the path to a successful outcome can be charted as quickly as possible.

Whether you are involved with a complicated business class action, a consumer class action, or a wage and hour employment class action, Berger Kahn attorneys can serve as valuable counselors and aggressive advocates on your behalf throughout the process.
