We are experts in due process and class member engagement – leveraging our class action experience, big data analytics, contemporary media tools and e-commerce prowess to drive accurate and effective notice planning and implementation for our clients. We have:
- testified regarding the adequacy of notice procedures in direct notice cases;
- testified regarding the adequacy of published notice plans;
- been appointed as a Distribution Fund Administrator by the Securities and Exchange Commission tasked with developing Distribution Plans for court approval;
- been retained as an expert by the Federal Trade Commission to testify regarding the effectiveness of competing notice plans and procedures.
Based upon historic and court accepted methodologies, our innovative approach provides creative, effective and defensible notice plans that are optimized around the facts of each case and the possibilities of contemporary media. We evaluate the specific demographics and habits of the class, the media alternatives available to them, the specifics of the case and the needs of counsel and the Court. In so doing, we ensure claimants understand their rights and that we explain the settlement’s key components in plain language.
Our notice campaigns not only withstand judicial scrutiny and meet due process requirements, but also provide meaningful results that differentiate them from the classic programs that have been used for decades. Our campaigns recognize, and take advantage of, the significant shifts in media consumption in the United States and the fragmentation in ways in which consumers receive information.
Our expert consulting services include:
- Ascertainability Analysis Economic, new media, and big data analysis identify or overcome obstacles in class certification.
- Notice Plan Design Deep insights into consumer response and contemporary media result in Notice Plans tailored to how class members understand, consume, and respond to media messages.
- Notice Plan Implementation Thoughtful implementation ensures effectiveness and guides class member access to case information and means to exercise their rights.
