Class Actions

Sutter O’Connell has defended class action cases involving products liability, consumer sales practices and financial/credit evaluation claims. Our attorneys have developed a team approach to the investigation, evaluation, defense and strategic direction of class actions—high stakes cases which can be devastating to the financial health and reputation of a company. We work to provide an early evaluation of class action claims, from discovery to defeat class certification to an objective assessment of the merits of each class claim.

As part of our scope of services, we develop a creative, responsive and efficient strategy with our clients to contain defense costs. Our integrated, team-oriented approach allows us to offer our clients the full reach of our depth of professional talent in order to properly assess the merits of class action claims and to develop several possible outcomes from mediation and settlement to trial.
