Class Action Defense

Kerr Russell, a leader in business litigation, possesses an outstanding record of success in defending class actions nationally. Our experienced litigators represent clients in cases related to consumer fraud and other consumer-facing issues, products liability, including automotive product defects, antitrust, securities, insurance, and data breach matters, among others.

We have experience litigating all phases of the defense of a class action claim, including critical issues related to whether a class should be certified. Our attorneys routinely defend against motions for certification, and also preemptively moved to strike class claims. We are also adept at quickly, efficiently, and effectively moving through other aspects of class action defense, including discovery, expert preparation, briefing, and advocacy.

Our attorneys appear in state and federal courts in multiple jurisdictions, and have represented market-leading companies in the financial, insurance, automotive, retail and numerous manufacturing industries.
