Class Action Litigation
Class Action Litigation Defense
Class actions are complex, high-stakes cases that have the potential to destroy a business entirely. Without aggressive, experienced attorneys at your side, your company’s future is in serious jeopardy.
At Lucas & Haverkamp, we represent corporations facing a number of types of class action claims, including mass torts, claims of unfair business practices, and employment claims. We regularly assist clients in the consumer products, pharmaceutical, and medical device industries. Our attorneys have also represented clients in the aerospace, telecommunications, chemical, and transportation sectors.
A Small Firm That Delivers Big Results
We have built a reputation as the little firm that takes on big cases. We believe that quality is always preferable to quantity. Unlike other firms, we do not shift cases to less experienced lawyers, we don’t hand off tasks to secretaries, and we do not rely on voicemail to screen our calls. When you are facing something as serious as a class action, you need a dedicated legal team completely devoted to your case. When you need us, you can count on us to direct our full attention to your class action dispute.
Our Client-Focused Approach
We believe that the best lawyers take time to get to know their clients. Whereas some firms use a cookie cutter method to handle each case that comes their way, we do not believe in one-size-fits-all legal solutions. This is especially true in our class action litigation practice, where the stakes for our clients are very high. We recognize that the people we represent are educated, experienced business owners who understand the issues. We work with them to develop sound legal strategies designed to achieve fast results that minimize the impact on their reputation and their bottom line.
We Find the Right Strategy for Your Case
At Lucas & Haverkamp, we are well-known for our ability to bring about early resolution of class action cases. From the very first meeting, we target legal strategies designed to contain the damage to your business. After our initial assessment, we get to work right away to identify potential resolutions. In most cases, we start by filing a motion to dismiss the putative class. In other situations, we defeat the plaintiffs’ motion to certify a class. If we need to move forward, we often explore the possibility of settlement, which can minimize our clients’ financial exposure. If necessary, we rigorously pursue our clients’ goals all the way to trial and beyond.
