Class Action & Multi-District Litigation

Viewing:

In complex cases involving a large number of litigants or multiple jurisdictions, Beck Redden’s Class Action & Multi-District Litigation practice has the experience, depth and resources to pursue favorable outcomes on behalf of our clients.

Energy companies, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, product manufacturers, investments banks, and other large business entities trust Beck Redden to represent them in matters of scale that include many moving parts. Ultimately these cases require creative, forward-thinking strategies and the Beck Redden team has the skill to deploy these strategies with confidence and vigor – both in the pretrial stage and before a jury.

Our Class Action & Multi-District Litigation practice helps clients by:
  • Trying cases in courts nationwide
  • Pursuing early victory during the class certification process
  • Assessing and arguing the validity of claims of commonality in damages, law, and fact
  • Applying industry-specific expertise, such as in energy, life sciences, investment, and real estate
  • Prosecuting proceedings involving securities, consumer warranty, breach of contract, insurance compliance and pricing, statutory violations, oil and gas, antitrust, royalties, product liability, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) issues
  • Navigating the pretrial process in the assigned jurisdiction, and later trying cases in the originating courts
  • Working in a “Virtual Law Firm” setting, forming cohesive, collaborative teams with other firms
  • Seeking and resisting discretionary applications for appellate review of certification rulings
  • Challenging or defending class certification rulings in interlocutory appeals that frequently “make or break” the underlying litigation on the merits

Beck Redden is renowned for securing rulings in class actions that have shaped the law as we know it. Our talented team has successfully convinced courts to write and rule on issues of future consequence, achieving wins for clients while protecting others from unnecessary future litigation and harm. Working together, the firm’s trial and appellate lawyers are able to identify and pursue each case’s key avenues to success.
