Class Action Defense

New York Class Action Defense

A class action lawsuit can significantly affect a business’s operations for years, so we work directly with our clients to develop efficient litigation strategies to defend you, while being mindful of operational disruption, damages exposure, public relations, and direct and indirect costs that businesses face during class action disputes. 

Class Action Defense Services

Class action lawsuits can have a few plaintiffs or thousands. A class action can have a devastating effect – from the impact on operations and financial stability to public relations scrutiny and negative brand consequences.

Plaintiffs’ attorneys are willing to spend significant time, money, and resources on winning a class action case because they are paid based on the amount of the class’s overall financial recovery.  With that in mind, the attorneys at Carter Conboy work with our clients from the early stages to mitigate the plaintiffs’ chances of success and financial recovery. 

While we are always prepared to take a class action to trial, one of our preliminary defense strategies is defeating class certification.  Additionally, we maintain credible and professional relationships with plaintiffs’ counsel and work to resolve cases outside of the courtroom through arbitration, mediation, and settlement.
