Class Action Litigation
BurgherGray represents clients in class actions and other complex litigation proceedings in state and federal courts nation-wide. Our attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of class action litigation, including opposing class certification and discovery. BurgherGray also has significant experience representing clients subject to governmental investigations, while simultaneously defending against related class action litigation.
Class actions are notoriously expensive, but our attorneys save clients time and money by spotting meritless claims at the outset and taking strategic actions at the earliest opportunity to end the litigation or narrow the scope of the putative class action. Our attorneys also tightly control the discovery process to limit actions by opposing parties that needlessly drive up the costs of litigation.
- Defended a national retailer in a class action brought under California’s Song-Beverly Act. In a resounding victory, our attorneys had a previously signed settlement agreement rescinded, plaintiff’s counsel removed from the case, and lead plaintiff disqualified as a class representative. The court then entered a judgment on the pleadings in favor of the defendant. The decision saved the client more than $20 million, based upon the aggregate cost of the settlement that the court rescinded.
