Class Action Defense
Thorpe Shwer attorneys are experienced in defending class and multi-district litigation cases in state and federal courts throughout the country. In particular, we have defended clients in consumer product and service class actions, cases involving payment and financial services issues, and pharmaceutical pricing claims. Our attorneys are highly knowledgeable in all stages of class action litigation, including evaluating early removal, transfer, consolidation and coordination of pre-trial proceedings in multi-district litigation matters, motions to dismiss, opposing class certification, discovery, trial, and appeal. We recognize that it is critical to dispose of these cases early on motions to dismiss or to successfully oppose class certification, which swiftly reduces the potential exposure for our clients. Our team is also well-versed in identifying creative solutions for early resolution of these cases and knows how to negotiate favorable and creative settlements that can be presented to the court for approval.
