Litigation / Class Actions

Class actions are a unique procedural instrument, offering plaintiffs great power against bodies and companies from a variety of industries and fields.

Class actions offer plaintiffs great power against bodies and companies from a variety of industries and fields. A class action is a legal device in the service of the public and an important tool in the civil arena.

 

Class actions have not only triggered a sharp rise in awareness of consumer rights among the general public itself, as well as among corporations and government authorities, but their emergence has also served as a deterrent against corporate misconduct and as a tool to spur corporations to act with all due care towards consumers.

 

Our Litigation Department has extensive expertise and experience in handling all aspects of class actions and in customizing the legal strategy for each client, whether as a plaintiff or as a defendant.

 

The department’s renowned reputation in class actions attracts clients who retain us to represent them as plaintiffs or as defendants in diverse class action cases. Our team also provides advice on mitigating risks when class actions are lodged against a client. 

 

The team has also earned respect for its representation of both petitioners and respondents in motions to certify actions as class actions, and for its success in dismissing class actions already at the stage of the motion to certify.

 

We advise clients on various commercial class actions in the fields of financial services, consumer protection, employment, privacy, and more. 

Local and international clients can rely on our extensive knowledge, which enables us to deliver integrated legal solutions throughout each phase of class action litigation.
