Class Action Litigation

Class actions can be dangerous weapons. They involve significant liability exposure, the specter of business-altering injunctive relief, and, at times, threats to the viability of an organization. Arnall Golden Gregory’s Class Action Litigation Practice meets those challenges with insightful advocates that draw on the Firm’s depth of industry knowledge, legal acumen, and understanding of its clients’ objectives to achieve results consistent with clients’ business goals.

That is why the Firm’s clients have trusted it to handle class actions in a wide variety of industries and areas of law, including in suits alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) infractions, violations of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (“RESPA”), securities fraud, antitrust violations, and improprieties in the business practices of the payments and insurance industries. And that trust has proven well placed. Our litigators have achieved significant successes in class actions and putative class actions across the country, including matters pending before state and federal courts in Georgia, California, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, and the District of Columbia. Such achievements include:

  • Securing the dismissal of putative class-based claims against clients prior to class certification briefing;
  • Resolving putative class actions for modest individual settlements after establishing or forecasting impediments to class certification;
  • Defeating class-based claims on dispositive motion; and
  • Reaching zero-dollar liability settlements in exchange for non-monetary consideration.

As in other litigation matters, Arnall Golden Gregory’s Class Action Litigation Practice appreciates that representations work best when they are tailored. To that end, the Firm’s lawyers focus on developing motion strategies, discovery plans, and negotiation approaches that minimize cost, reduce exposure, and advance arguments against class certification and liability—all while being consistent, when necessary, with its clients’ objectives in other disputes and government investigations.
