A testament to our durable and deep client relationships, Polsinelli has been called upon by its clients to handle more than 250 class and mass action cases in federal and state courts across the nation, and the practice was nationally recognized by BTI Consulting Group for Class Action Litigation in the 2018 BTI Litigation Outlook
report, based on interviews with more than 300 general counsel at companies with more than $1 billion in revenue. In most cases, we are able to achieve our client’s objectives through aggressively targeted discovery and motion practice that results in enforcing arbitration clauses, favorable class certification decisions, summary judgment or settlements. This approach ensures that legal advice is informed by and consistent with business considerations, and shows our commitment to developing client relationships based on practicality and mutual trust.
But we have also tried several class actions, achieving results consistent with our clients’ goals. We have been trusted as counsel by clients in many industries, including trucking and transportation, telecommunications, construction, banking, government and insurance, insurance, manufacturing, natural resources, technology, pharmaceuticals and local government. These cases have drawn on our attorneys’ diverse and broad backgrounds, and involved many areas of law, including:
- Marketing and consumer fraud
- Securities fraud
- Federal statutes such as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, ERISA and COBRA
- State consumer protection statutes
- Employment practices including FLSA
- Products liability
- DOT regulations
Our experience helps us determine when to pursue arbitration or other means of evaluation and early disposition of potentially expensive litigation. We use advanced methods for case management, including sophisticated technologies for identifying, gathering, processing and storing relevant documents that help reduce the cost of these major cases. Altogether, these processes allow us to craft a step-by-step strategy that will lead to stable, practical and straightforward solutions.
