Class Action/Mass Tort Litigation

Because of the intense pressure that class actions can place on defendants, the class action mechanism has been, and will likely continue to be, utilized frequently by plaintiffs.  We defend clients in state and federal class action litigation, both in Texas and in other jurisdictions.

For years, our lawyers have been at the Texas epicenter of some of the most significant, bet-the-company nationwide mass tort litigation.  That experience armed us with the particular skills required to navigate mass tort litigation, including the ability to develop a litigation strategy that focuses on the litigation as a whole rather than just the first cases set for trial, the ability to manage the inevitable publicity that will accompany substantial mass tort litigation, and the ability to simultaneously manage discovery, expert and fact witnesses, and motion practice in multiple cases at the same time.
