We have successfully represented and counseled businesses throughout the process in both Federal and State (Complex Litigation) matters.

As with any litigation, it is often most efficient to negotiate a favorable settlement rather than engage in protracted litigation. However, in order to secure a settlement, it is often necessary to litigate aggressively, at least initially, especially at the Class Certification stage. There may also be alternative arbitration options for class litigants as well which avoids the public nature of litigation in Court. An ongoing Class Action dispute and litigation can significantly hinder business operations and can be disruptive in so many ways including damage to reputation in the community, enhanced regulatory scrutiny, and management distraction. For all of these reasons, an aggressive yet measured approach to quietly resolve the matter is certainly advisable in most cases. If your business is facing the threats associated with Class Action Litigation, the knowledgeable attorneys at McFarlin LLP can guide you through the process to a successful outcome. For most businesses of any significant size, having a Class Action filed may be inevitable with the litigious nature of our society, however addressing the matter immediately and straightforwardly is typically the recipe for the least monetary damage and minimal business disruption.
