Goodell, DeVries, Leech & Dann, LLP

Class Action Litigation

Our Class Action Litigation attorneys have broad experience in all aspects of Class Action Litigation, and are adept at managing expansive cases requiring sophisticated expert testimony and significant electronic discovery. We frequently serve as local, regional, or national counsel for manufacturers facing class action litigation arising from products alleged to be defective or hazardous. In addition, we routinely represent clients in class action cases involving state and federal unfair competition and consumer fraud statutes. Our attorneys have also been successful in opposing requests for class certification. In all such cases, we develop and implement innovative defense strategies, such as the use of a four-day summary jury trial to favorably resolve a nationwide class action.

Over the years, we have defended clients facing class action litigation across the country, including in California, New Jersey, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, and Alabama. Representative cases have involved pharmaceutical agents, medical devices and products (including prescription medications, pacemaker leads, ultrasonic scalers, and cardiac stents), consumer products (including animal health products, software, and chicken labeled as antibiotic-free), and other allegedly defective, hazardous, or mislabeled products.
