Collective Actions

Managing Complexity.

 

As a Special Master said: “It’s like a wheelbarrow full of frogs”.

All else being equal, class actions exist because when common questions predominate, they are a superior mechanism, both legally and economically, to individually filed actions.   Changes in law and agreements barring class litigation have lead to an increase in collective litigation.  This litigation – and their settlements – occur outside the established norms of class litigation – and pose special challenges that increase costs for all parties.

Addressing the needs of parties involved in collective litigation, we provide services to streamline the litigation management process:

  • Standardized Collection (Online and Hard Copy) of Opt-In and Consent to Join Forms
  • Scheduled Reporting (Protecting Personal Information) for Court Filing
  • Automated Communications
  • Distribution and Collection of Individualized Settlement Agreements.
