Defending Your Business In High-Stakes Class Action Litigation
Class action litigation can cost your company more than money. Your reputation may also be at stake. Reducing your exposure should be a key part of any resolution. With so much on the line, you need an experienced litigator ready to defend your company.
I am Richard A. Kaplan, Esq. of Counsel at Anderson & Karrenberg. I have substantial experience helping businesses manage risk and reach new heights. Although I have built my career as a litigator, my value goes beyond the courtroom. I have a Harvard MBA. I also have experience working with businesses of all sizes, which gives me insight into the issues important to my clients. I have handled cases across a wide spectrum of industries.
The Complexities Of Multi-Litigant Disputes
When it comes to complex litigation, experience matters. Class action lawsuits involve multiple parties, including multiple plaintiffs, and even multiple defendants at times, and often cross state lines. Class actions make up a significant part of my practice. I have a strong record of success when it comes to resolving these cases for my clients.
Strategizing a strong defense early is important in class actions. Key elements to defending these cases include:
- Arguing against class certification and moving for dismissal
- Minimizing monetary damages
- Reducing damage to the brand’s reputation
- Defending against motions for injunctive relief that may harm business production
- Coordinating actions in multiple states or jurisdictions
These are just a few factors that may become important in any class action defense. I tailor my approach to the specific needs and goals of my client in each case.
Bringing Your Case To A Close
A swift resolution often helps reduce the stress this type of lawsuit may have on your business. If I cannot dismiss your case outright, I will work toward the outcome that best protects your business and legal interests. To that end, I understand the importance of negotiating a settlement agreement that minimizes damages and allows your business to move forward.
If I cannot reach an appropriate settlement, however, I am always ready to take your case to court as I have built my practice as a trial lawyer. When I need further litigation support, I have the excellent team at Anderson & Karrenberg, P.C., ready to back me up. Entrust your case to an attorney who has decades of experience and understands what is important to you and your company.
