High-Impact Class Action Defense

Effective defense of class-based claims demands counsel with a specific skill set. The right defense counsel must know the laws that control class actions as well as the leverage points that exist throughout the life of the litigation to defeat current and potential class claims.

Our attorneys provide class action defense representation that harvests our in-depth understanding of the law and tactics that work to defeat class claims. We have achieved multiple successes under the exacting requirements of the Fair Labor Standard Act and Rule 23 in both state and federal courts. We use that experience to drive early resolution in class-based claims of all kinds. Our practice covers all facets of class action proceedings including motions to dismiss, motions in opposition to conditional and final class certification proceedings, discovery, settlement, trial, and appeal—and our record of results includes both class decertification and summary judgment successes. In addition, our knowledge of the region’s courts and customs has made us a go-to provider of litigation local counsel services. Our local counsel experience includes representations and related services for complex matters like health care, IT, hospitality, consumer, food, financial, and other subject-matter-specific class actions venued in Minnesota courts.
