Employers regularly engage us to defend complex employment class actions. We have a substantial team of employment attorneys with class action experience. Our many successes include:
- Obtaining a defense verdict in a nationwide race discrimination class action. The case was recognized by The National Law Journal as one of the top 10 defense wins of 2005.
- Obtaining a defense verdict in a state court class action involving an alleged misclassification of insurance claims adjustors.
- Defeating class certification in numerous cases.
We have defended employers in a wide range of industries and types of claims, including: health care employers, energy companies, retailers, construction industry contractors, public employers, pension plans, financial institutions, and manufacturers.
We have defended class sizes ranging from 25 employees to more than 100,000 employees.
Our employment class action attorneys are not only experienced litigators, but also have substantive expertise in employment law matters including discrimination, wage/hour, OSHA, and independent contractor. Our attorneys are well-connected to experts and consultants to provide employers with testimony and support, including e-discovery. The many years we have invested in developing forms and resources ensure that we will defend employers efficiently, using the latest technologies, litigation strategies, and substantive legal developments.
