Class Actions

 

In cases with billions of dollars on the line, Selendy & Gay’s partners have achieved results for plaintiffs and defendants at every phase of the national class action process, in matters including antitrust, consumer disputes, insurance, intellectual property, privacy and data breach, RICO, and securities fraud.

We have served as national trial and coordinating counsel for large companies facing serial class action litigation, whether filed in selected “hot” venues or as multi-district litigation (MDLs). Our representation of both plaintiffs and defendants has helped us create “outside the box” strategies that go beyond typical class action practice. Our deep reservoir of trial skills creates momentum to the earliest possible resolution, and we understand the need for case strategies to serve our clients’ business objectives of leveraging or protecting company assets.

Our successes include leveraging our relationships with the plaintiffs’ bar to obtain stays of discovery or early dismissals; victories for plaintiffs and defendants at the class certification, Daubert, and summary judgment stages; prevailing at trial in liability and damages phases; and obtaining high-value settlements.

We frequently work in parallel with regulatory action, government investigations, or criminal prosecutions to effectuate truly comprehensive, cost-effective, and press-savvy resolutions. We also routinely litigate on behalf of opt-out plaintiffs, for whom an individual suit may offer a higher recovery than remaining in a class action.
