Class Action and Multi-Party Litigation

PDFEmailPrint

Krieg DeVault’s litigators use experience, creativity, and vigorous advocacy to defend our business and professional services clients against class action lawsuits involving financial, health care, employment, securities, and product liability claims. Our attorneys also defend employers in collective actions brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act. With team members who include experienced appellate practitioners and litigators and a former superior court judge, we can efficiently staff and address all aspects of class and collective action litigation, including pre-certification, class discovery, class certification, and de-certification. Our lawyers evaluate complex scientific, technical, and multi-jurisdictional issues, and are knowledgeable about the unique case management requirements associated with class and collective actions. We assess the merits of the case quickly and aggressively pursue dismissal or summary judgment at the pre-certification stage, as well as denial of certification as a class or collective action. Should the case move to trial, we present a knowledgeable yet practical defense against plaintiffs’often emotional arguments. Our use of technology is a particular strength, with an e-discovery capability that can effectively handle the large document volume these cases involve.
