With laws addressing class and derivative actions continuously evolving, there are multiple challenges facing businesses surrounding class and derivative action certification, discovery and recent decisions, some of which are precedent cases from the Supreme Court. Clients benefit from working with experts who can help best determine how to navigate the litigation or settlement process, depending on which route is best for their case.
With class and derivative actions among the most central pillars of the firm, our Class Actions and Derivatives department is one of the leading departments across the country, bringing clients substantial experience and a successful track record that has created a long line of precedent-setting judgments in both class actions and derivatives. As such, a loyal and diverse client roster of banks, insurance companies, high-profille public companies, and many more is confident in the firm’s expertise in the field.
We represent clients in a wide range of issues that arise when class actions and derivative claims are filed, handling requests to approve derivative claims relating to complex corporate policy issues, corporate governess, the approval of transactions with stakeholders and controlling shareholders, and complicated issues related to D&O. Furthermore, we have secured judgments in lawsuits that have shaped the guidelines for corporate governance.
We are widely recognised for a particular forte in class actions in the pharma sector, frequently handling some of the country’s largest lawsuits, while we also act in complex class actions in relation to taxation, accessibility, consumer protection, labor law, pensions, insurance, and many more – all before various courts and tribunals.
Furthermore, clients benefit from our wealth of understanding, empathy and strategic grasp of all the issues as we are one of the few large firms that can draw non full resources and skills to also represent plaintiffs in complex class actions and proceedings.
