Class Action Litigation

Class-action lawsuits are brought on behalf of individuals who supposedly share a common claim against others or a business. For example, shareholders of a public company may bring a securities class-action lawsuit alleging that directors or officers engaged in fraud in connection with the purchase or sale of securities. We defend these types of cases by responding with an aggressive motion practice seeking a dismissal and narrowing of the claims. In one such matter in federal court in Florida, we represented a businessman accused of securities fraud. We filed a persuasive and compelling motion to dismiss based on a statute of limitations issues and successfully obtained a dismissal of the entire lawsuit along with sanctions against the plaintiff.
