Miller Nash Graham & Dunn has successfully defended dozens of class actions involving diverse areas of the law, including wage-and-hour issues, title insurance issues, product liability issues, consumer protection issues, and securities issues. Our attorneys stay abreast of the latest developments in class-action procedure, are accustomed to the changes wrought by the Class Action Fairness Act, and have handled all aspects of class actions, from defeating initial class certification to overseeing class settlement administration to trying class actions to defense verdict. We have defended clients in industries such as retail, financial services, real estate, food processing, forest products, construction, manufacturing, transportation, and energy.
We work closely with our clients’ management teams to engage in early and ongoing evaluations and develop case strategies based on their short- and long-term business interests. When resolution is not possible, we will provide an assertive and professional defense.
Our litigators and paralegals routinely deal with cases involving large volumes of documents and numerous parties, deponents and witnesses. We utilize the latest technology for handling such heavy discovery and document review, and regularly employ internal secure data rooms to easily share information and collaborate with our clients. We seek the lowest-cost and most efficient solution to managing intensive amounts of discovery and data. If a class is certified, our experience in working with claims administrators ensures that timely, appropriate, and defensible notices are sent and maintained, and that the notice and claims process is handled smoothly.
