Areas of Practice

Class Actions

Situated at the epicenter of regional and national class action litigation, we have developed a sophisticated class action defense model that has significantly aided our varied business clients in potentially crippling lawsuits.

From our downtown St. Louis firm headquarters, our nearby southern Illinois office located between class action meccas Madison County and St. Clair County, and our downtown Chicago location, we have assembled agile teams of experienced class action trial lawyers. Legally savvy, technologically sophisticated, and effective in assessing client exposure, they employ proven courtroom strategies and negotiation skills to obtain prompt dismissals or favorable settlements that avoid protracted litigation.

From RICO actions to securities litigation, consumer fraud actions, and product liability cases, from allegedly harmful pharmaceutical and medical device matters to suits claiming exposure to asbestos, benzene and other environmental hazards, we’ve helped our clients minimize damage when facing significant potential exposure. They benefit from our vigorous and cost-effective defense in class certification and claim merits, and from our proactive case management—including risk management, insurance coverage issues, customer and public relations, and, when appropriate, governmental lobbying.
