Multidistrict and Class Action Litigation

Multidistrict and class action cases attract some of the finest lawyers practicing today.  Because the defendants are often large national or multinational corporations with nearly limitless resources, they also involve some of the nation’s largest and most powerful law firms.  Not every firm has the resources and expertise to successfully prosecute these cases, but Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen does.

Class action cases run the gamut from antitrust violations and fraudulent or deceptive trade practices to breaches of contract, securities fraud, and unlawful or unfair employment practices.  What unites these cases is that they all involve large numbers of victims who have often suffered relatively small individual damages, but from whom a large corporation has in the aggregate taken millions or even billions of dollars in the name of ever greater profits.

Changes in federal law, including the Class Action Procedures Act (CAFA), mean that many class actions are now either brought in or removed to federal court.

The attorneys at Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen have deep experience in the complexities of multidistrict and class action litigation, as well as decades of experience before federal judges in the Southern District of Florida and around the country.  We also have a proven record of success in litigating these cases in the trial court and defending our results on appeal.
