Class Actions

The Theodora Oringher Class Actions Practice Group is well versed in representing the spectrum of corporate and business clients who increasingly find themselves the target of consumer class action suits. In matters that many in the business community perceive as procedural blackmail, Theodora Oringher attorneys have been particularly successful in winning cases early by obtaining a dismissal or defeating class certification. Our goal is to assure business clients who are victimized by these costly and often protracted civil actions that there are both defenses and settlement strategies available in most consumer class actions. We are known for defining the scope of potential liability early in the litigation before substantial legal expenses are incurred and to map out a defense strategy with the client that will achieve the most cost effective result under the particular case circumstances.

We have defended class action lawsuits alleging a broad spectrum of legal theories including consumer class actions, wage and hour violations, and securities fraud in state and federal courts for clients spanning diverse industries. We have expertise in all phases of such litigation, including precertification hearing discovery, class certification motions and hearings, negotiating favorable settlements, obtaining court approval of class settlements, and conducting class action trials. 

In the appropriate and worthy case, Theodora Oringher attorneys have also represented aggrieved investors and other individuals in mass or class actions.
