Class Action Defense

Practice Image
Akerman has experience in carefully steering the defense of a class action case through all the critical phases. A class action suit can cause substantial internal disruption, as well as raise public relations, regulatory, and business development issues. Our team aims not only to succeed, but to minimize disruption, and to move the matter to resolution as quickly as possible.
Whether at a class certification evidentiary hearing or at trial, we aggressively defend against class action suits. When required, we will negotiate the best possible settlement to avoid costly litigation. Recognizing that class action litigation can also raise regulatory and compliance issues, our class action lawyers work with lawyers in those substantive areas to manage these aspects of class action litigation.
